    Airline surfboard fees

    Just curious if the lower gas prices has translated into any of the airlines getting rid of their outlandish board fees? Probably not, even though that was their rationalization for implementing the fees in the first place. Although I don't know if anything has changed since last winter so if anyone has some recent info please divulge...

    I wouldn't send my board at all......unless it's in the US. Customs can be a problem.

    Do you mean as checked baggage or via a cargo shipper? I have flown internationally on many occasions without any problems, not to mention all the people that travel to Indo and Costa Rica.

    That can be a bit more complicated... more gray area. Especially for kneeboards and paipos. But the paipo folks can usually slide by ala boogie board. For a non-professional, non-comprehensive view that tries to address some of the gray areas, visit:

    it also depends on the person asking what youre luggage is. ive brought pole vaulting poles down to florida before and instead of $75 each bag, the lady said only $25. so maybe you'll get lucky like me.
