curious if the Yakima Big Stack is tall enough to safely hold a SUP on its side?? any info would be helpful...looking for a way to carry both SUP and Kayak....
The Yakima Big Stack will not carry a S.U.P. board it is only designed for kayaks and kayaks only.
In order to carry a kayak and a board you will need to separate water sports carriers in order to mount the gear like the Thule SUP Taxi and the Yakima Bowdown or the Yakima WaveHog and the Thule Hull-a-Port.

How many big stacks do I need to carry 3 kayaks?
The Yakima BigStack can hold up to 4 boats on their side. You will need to tighten them down to both the crossbars and the car. A bow and stern tie down is always a good idea when hauling around boats. If you have any questions you can contact us at 303-278-4999.
