Surf Travel Bag

Postby gelebona » Wed Sep 02, 2015 5:42 pm

Hi fellow surf travelers,

I'm flying to London from SoCal and then flying to Bilbao and need to get a surfboard bag. Should I buy something light like this:

or something rad like this:

I should also mention I'm 5'3 and 50 kg myself so I'm worried about toting around too much heavy stuff/fitting surfboard bags into taxis/trains/buses whatnot.

Thanks for your help!

Who on earth buys a bag like that 2nd one and keeps a bic pop out in it, you could put a bic in the hold with nothing but a label on it and it wouldnt get damaged.

here's my tried and tested method:-

Buy a normal bag a size larger than you would normally.
put pipe insulation around the rails.
lay bubble wrap (large bubbles) on the deck/bottom and tape down
then wrap the whole lot in more bubble wrap
force into board bag.

Airline will probably still break it though!
