Surfboards, SUP's Rocket Pods etc etc..?
Also any comments on the Toyota Racks which seem to be
the only ones that fit on the Hybrid?

Roof loads certainly don't improve fuel economy.

I can say the Yakima Load Warrior basket (without the 18” extension) does not fit the hybrid well due to non-adjustable crossbars. It can be forced, but no perfect fit because it is too short by a couple inches. Thule is 4” longer, so it should be fine. Toyota crossbars are rated to 150 pounds. The basket is around 25, so you can carry about 125.

The Roof luggage carrier(cross bars) are rated at 160lbs as marked on the cross bars themselves or 176.4lb as stated in the owner's manual, page 180 (p198 HV manual).

Do not exceed 176.4 lb. (80 kg)
cargo weight on the roof luggage
carrier.
