Oh right that's a good idea. What do you drive? I'm hoping to get an old beetle this year and do it up as a beach bug kinda thing.

Hi Hannah, you may find the bars for the Subaru Justy fit your Sambar. The only reservation I would have is because of the height it will be scary in high winds. It is bad enough without bars on top as it is. Have you ever driven the van in high winds? I have been scared shitless at times. You get blown all over the road unless you have a good bit of weight inside. Just a thought.

I use soft racks on my car for my surfboards but I would imagine winsurfing stuff is bigger and heavier so I probably wouldnt trust the soft rack to hold.

I have seen Sambars with racks though- just a question of tracking them down. Also maybe you could approach a local fabrication firm to build some custom racks specifically designed for your requirements. Though I think it would be expensive if you went down that route.
