Rx8 + Paddle board = no bueno

Sooo I bought a 12.6ft Paddle board today.. yay. lol The smiles went away though when I got home and realized that... I am unable to put my board on my car haha.
apparently Thule does not make a roof rack for our rx8. (damn bastards)

I am just curious if theres any of you out there, that has been able to find some sort of rack (hopefully temporary) to put on top of our cars to carry surf boards & or paddle boards???

Did someone say Audi?!







If buying a new car for your board isn't what you had in mind... then I guess 9k had some decent advice. There should be some option that will work.

I still cant stand the ridiculously small gap between the front wheels and the front doors like most FWD/AWD cars have. its one of my pet peeves when considering a car.
