They are held on with suction alone? Are those Seasuckers?

https://www.seasucker.com/

They have been selling these for skis and bikes for years, but it always seemed like a risky way to mount expensive toys in my opinion.
I am sure they have enough suction to handle the weight, but I have trouble trusting them and/or my ability to make sure I install them properly

SeaSuckers which you are mentioning do not sell a mounting system for the surfboards are sup are kayaks they simply sell a tiedown rack for the top of a cars are on the side of the van. Good rack the racks that you see in the pictures are held on by suction cups each one of these cups holds 225 pounds each and they're are six suction cups on each rackit. There is no risk of anything coming loose on these when you have the system that's on our van . suction cups have been tested up to 350 miles in wind tunnel testing. He's on the side of our van for over a year. Of course mounting on any racks is important tying down your SUP properly that's why we went with the mounting system pull the strap and it's locked. I believe that you look at rackit on www.surfsracksmbc.com you'll see a whole line that actually has a patent pending. Hope this helps.

I don't think most board rack users would be too comfortable relying on the power of the suction cups exclusively. This company makes a rack that attached to a roof mounted C-rail and then suctions to the side. they are available to fit the ProMaster. http://vertirack.com/VertiRack Sprinter Side Mount SUP Rack.htm

There is another outfit making side mount suction cup racks. These mount to a track on the roof and suction to the van side. Very quick and easy to install and remove once the track and rack mount are installed. For those who don't trust suction cups alone. They are made to fit all high roof vans including ProMaster.
