I have a van and want to carry the canoe and kayak on top at the same time. Is there a type of mountthat I can get?

Go to your local roof-rack dealer. They have all kinds of stuff designed for this. Thule and Yakima are the two biggest brand names, but there are others.

Thule Hullavator arm does not automatically lift as other arm does....seems to be leaking fluid?

Hullivator lift cylinders are pneumatic, there is no fluid to leak. However, they do fail, and when they do, they do not provide lift. Despite what Thule says, the cylinders can be replaced. I have replaced 4 of them. Drill out the rivets holding the old cylinders in place. I bought new cylinders from - they were very helpful and they charged a little less than $30 each for the cylinders. The first cylinders were 75 pound lifts. Those my sister found too light to provide all the lift she wanted. I have since installed 150 pound lifts (this will require a clamp). I cut off, and reused, the longer of the original Thule rivets where the shorter rivet formerly was, and used a 5/16ths 4" stainless bolt in place of the longer rivet. It will take a couple of tries and some prying to get all the holes lined up for that last bolt, under pressure, but in retrospect it will all seem to have been surprisingly easy. Good luck.

How do i take off my thule roof bars

Unscrew the knobs at each end of the load bars. Make sure they are unlocked or they will not unscrew. That will loosen the clamps on your rain gutters or factory roof bars of your vehicle. Then you can just lift the Thule load bars off your vehicle.

Can you confirm how the straps are correctly to be used to hold the surfboard in place?

Place pads around your cross bars, thread straps over the board and under the bar on the far side and then over the board with the buckle end on top of the near side of the board. Then wrap the other end under the bar and 1 time around on the near side, thread through the buckle and pull tight....repeat.

Thule car bag rip...needs repair

Probably a fiberglass repair kit, available at most hardware stores. Let it cure longer than required prior to sanding. Then paint as required.
