    travel bags

    well im sure mostof you guys know im going on a trip this feb from all the posts but i have a question about bringing boards..... well, do you think that mt tuflite board would be fine bubble wrapped in a boardbag? and someone told me that i could put a bodyboard in cardboard and tape it to the boardbag and say its extra protection
    has anyone ever tried any of this.

    with a surftech you do not even need the bubble wrap if you have a decent board bag...i just put then in the bag and never had any problems (I travel at least once a year)
    good luck

    thats pretty much what i did, i wrapped my body board in a blanket and bungeed it to my bag after it was all packed up.



    fold your wetsuit up and make a good soft base on the bottom. and i wrapped my hood and gloves and boots around the nose and they still busted it up.


    bascially just stuff as much soft stuff around the board as you can and hope for the best.

    Last times I traveled with my board I put it right in a Dakine Travle bag . I never had and issue . The only thing I did since It was my Cooperfish with a glassed in fin is put it in a board sock then in the travel bag . Still everything was good when I unpacked it

    Nah I just work nights. LOL

    If you need a travel bag Surfers Surplus has them I was looking at a 9'6 Ocean Earth Travel bag and it was 76 dollars .

    I dont know if you were wanting to upgrade to travel bag or not but its worth a look

    don't listen to this guy...my tuflite got f*cked up by the bastards at American Airlines while wrapped in bubble wrap and a towel. I had 2 boards with broken noses and bad dings on the rails towards the bottom , try to avoid any connect flights and fly direct. Luckily i had a direct flight on the way to the virgin islands and they arrived safely, on the way back i had a connect flight in Miami and I'm pretty sure that's how they got banged up.
