\nThe main issue is checking your bags in or your BOARDS! If you know that there are plenty of open seats-thus you get on the flight - checking your stuff is not an issue. BUT if you are unsure about getting on- and you check in your board- your board usually ends up going ... And you don't! One time I got stuck in Hawaii for an extra week cause I couldn't get home on a flight ... Talk about getting stuck in paradise! But I checked my bag with all my stuff the first night I tried to get on a flight - the bag when- I didn't !!!! Lol I didn't have anything that week! Alot of swimming!
\nI would suggest packing light and don't check anything. Just take a back pack and carry it on. Rent or borrow a board!
\nAnd oh ya- I had the 'airline status' and got first dibs on seats- but there is still a peaking order within the airline status- and I only had to pay 25 bucks to fly!!! Haha
