Wondering if anyone has an advice on transporting a SUP and a kayak at the same time with a Volvo XC70. I am hoping to get a 10' kayak. I have the standard Volvo cross bar rack and use straps to attach the SUP to the top of the car. Not sure how I could transport both. Any comments from experience are appreciated.

1) Get longer bars so you can carry the SUP flat and the kayak in a J-Cradle
Thanks for help|

... yes, I was wondering if I could stack them, with the SUP in the padded bag. Didn't want to damage SUP with the kayak on top. Plus, I worried about strapping them both down. Do you think I could use the same locking straps (I have long ones) to strap both down tight? Or do each seperately?)

My son owned a slightly older volvo, we used what I think are now called Yakima Rail Grabber towers and a wider cross bar. Carried multiple large surfboards and kayaks.

Thanks for the advice all! I think the problem is, my crossbars are too short, like someone noted. I will look for longer ones from Thule to fit my Volvo brand fittings.
