    It probably makes it the size to fit in a boogieboard bag. (i think counts as normal luggage, why the f would you travel with a sponge anyway?)

    if you're not a sponger, i guess that won't make any sense...
    went to southeast Asia this past winter; bodyboard bags is $25 one way (delta). not only did it carry my boog, but i also used it to put all my clothes

    When i flew to pr last winter i flew southwest All my buddies packed their clothes and such in the their board bags. I just wrapped bubble wrap and that was it so it was super light un like my friends bags Southwest charged them $75 each way and for some reason they didnt charge me a penny for either way.. it was sick! I dont know if they screwed up or what but maybe you should fly southwest and pack super light! good luck mate.

    WTF I'm flying Delta out to Long Beach in the morning and just saw that surfboard fees are $150 per way. I'm flying up to SF from LGB on Saturday night on JetBlue then back to Boston on Sunday night so this will cost me $250 total to bring a board out and back and have airlines ding it three times.

    Usually wouldn't need to bring a board as I keep one out at buddy's but he doesn't get out of work tomorrow til 4 so I'd miss most of my sesh then I need a board to charge SF with. If I can figure a place to rent for tomorrow I may just bring out a travel bag, but a board out there as I usually do off CL then it will cost $100 total to bring it to SF and back home. What you guys think?

    Bring a board (or two) & leave it somewhere safe, in a board bag. You go out to the left coast several times per year from what you indicate. Or make some friends out there & borrow boards for your brief sojourns.

    I love to take surf treks but the domestic airlines blow.

    Right on bro, as mentioned, I've got a bud out there that I keep a 6'2 Altered MTF with. He's working later than when I'll be on the water tomorrow so I won't be able to score it in time. Other Swellers in the area have offered to lend me sticks as well which is great. Problem is they're in SD and I'll be flying into LGB for 1pm so I'll need to charge No. OC/So. LA at least for Friday to get reasonable water time with sunlight.

    The whole thing that trows this out of whack is the $150 on the way out there. JB at $50 a pop for the next two segments is a breeze.

    IF going to Rincon stay at www.vrbo.com #214129 we include a quiver of long and shortboards with the condo save you $200 bucks and the hassle of lugging it through the airports only to pay extra to have the baggage handlers break your favorite board INSANE!!!!!
