Car roof racks can be a brilliant way of expanding your car space without having to buy a bigger car, but they are not cheap and it's good to do your research before you spend a lot.
Here is a good article about things you should know before you buy a roof rack;

I'm planning to buy a kayak but I'm not sure that I'll be able to transport it on top of my car, is there a roof rack that is specially made for kayaks?


There are special roof racks that you can get for transporting a kayak. You are going to want to get a specially made roof rack because they have pads and are shaped in such a way that will protect both your kayak and car from getting scratched up.

Enjoy your kayaking!

Snowbard rack safety


not specific for snowboard buy general rack use : 1. The Lighter the Better Most minivan roof racks are designed for carrying lightweight objects -- like skis, small ladders, well-secured aerodynamic cargo containers (like those offered by Thule) and other light loads. 2. Mind the Center of Gravity Putting heavy boxes, bulky luggage and other weighty objects on your roof will raise the center of gravity of your vehicle, which could increase the chances of a rollover during emergency maneuvering or in the event of an accident. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHSTA) also encourages drivers to follow auto manufacturer guidelines for roof rack usage. * Rollover Risk: Load Vehicles Properly [NHTSA] 3. Strap and Secure Improperly secured roof cargo can also fly off and strike vehicles travelling behind you, sometimes with tragic results. Remember: Only put lightweight objects on your roof rack, secure cargo properly with tie-downs and strong cord, and consider purchasing an aerodynamic cargo container if you plan on using your roof rack to frequently carry light loads.
