Alot of airlines do not want anything to do with surfboards as baggage. You probably noticed several years ago when almost all of them began charging alot more for boards and not feeling to bad when they were damaged. They wanted to make it cost prohibitive for boards and actually pets as well. I am afraid that their attitude is that you can take your buisiness elsewhere. Of course there are some airlines that are surfer friendly, so I would try to support them instead.
If njshremachine has a jet, I just got laid off by my airline and could fly his haha.

Don't they have board rentals where you are going, or can you buy/sell a stick upon arrival/departure? I have traveled with boards and it sucks. Next time I will support the local economy (if possible) and travel stress free. Or is everyone so dialed in to their own equipment that this is not even an option. Just asking.
