Dee - for hard SUPs (absent car roof rack) the simplest is just a pair of straps with a simple cam ( not full on ratchet cams) + two hard foam pads.

But with an inflatable SUP, all you would need are the straps.

Unless you need elevation off the car roof to avoid an antenna or the like.

I use Dakine straps.

I’d probably recommend 12’ length. It gives you a bit more to play with if you’re ever using them on a different car. And you’ll need some length to tie off the end.
