/ Best way of carrying bouldering mats on a roof rack
Ratchet straps? Through the middle of the pad with 'bent' side facing forward.
FYI we only needed 1 for the non skull marked blue/red circuits if you're interested in space saving.
No more nails is pretty strong stuff. Dont need one of guns these days to apply it either.
Just don't forget to put the foam back in when you get to Font.
Where does the foam go during the journey?
Do you really need to ask?

You can get surfboard straps pretty cheap. They're basically mini ratchet straps and should do the job provided your now bombing it around!
It's designed to be easy to rip - not what you want holding your mat to the roof on a motorway...
Ratchet-straps (take 2 slacklines!) are best. Bungy straps, not so much.
Also, say goodbye to fuel efficiency.
Might be easier to strap passengers to the roof.
In all seriousness, I can see no benefit in removing the foam at all. You've still got a large block to pack; you've just created an extra item to pack somewhere.
I would suggest cam straps, what kayakers use to strap kayaks on the roof. Ratchet straps can (beleive it or not) go too tight and damage things. Plus cam straps are generally cheaper ;)
