The long easter weekend always brings large numbers of young Canarians and families heading south from across the island to enjoy the beaches and a little staycation time. This year has really been no different in that respect, along with occasionally silly drivers who, in their excitement, do not always appreciate that the normal rules of the road still apply, such as this surf board error caught on camera.
The Guardia Civil Traffico have been trying to identify the driver of a vehicle that drove this Thursday on the GC-1 carrying an irregularly shaped item in the back. Another driver who was following the car on the highway that connects the capital of Gran Canaria with the south of the island captured images of the vehicle in a video, which has been shared across social networks.

In the short video you can see the car carrying a surf board, however not on the regulation roof rack needed for a car of such small dimension, but instead simply across the back seats and with the ends dangerously protruding from both sides of the vehicle. A surf board error that could well result in a fine.
The images were taken on the GC-1, heading south, at the section between the Gran Canaria Airport and the exit to Carrizal de Ingenio.
