FYI, Virgin Atlantic no longer accepting surfboards over 6'3" for bookings made after 1st June 2016. :-(

They made quite a fuss about being surfer-friendly when British Airways banned surfboards back in 2007.

Bad news, the days of travelling with Longboards are dwindling, interesting to note that on a A320 within Oz you can take a board up to 9.8 m, yeah about 30 foot!!
so you will be able to take one of 'Roys' guns
