Allow us to introduce you to the digital Encyclopedia of Surfing

It's also a fact that you will heinously ruin the interior of a normal sedan with wax, sand, and foul smells if you're wedging boards and suits into the back. You need a good surf car. If you're perusing Craigslist for dedicated surf transport, here are the models you want. All can be had for less than $7,500
