what are you using it for though? travel? my friend has 1 of those expensive DaKine bags & i have personally helped him unpack from trottin the globe & seen how his boards come home with no damage at all from plane cargo holds.might be worth gettin 1 if that's what your planning on doing.get a cheap 1 if you don't need to depend on it to keep your boards undamaged.
I need a CHEAP bag. I dont see why they need to be overpriced. Anyone got any suggestions. i just cant afford 230 for a dakine
Sticky Bumps 6'9" padded "fat series" daybags from Surfsource.net cost about $50. They're roomy and padded well. I've flown several times with two shortboards/fish in lots of padding, towels and wetsuits stuffed into mine without incided. The website says they only make it up to 6'5" but they have a 6'9" and 7'3" as well.
