Nobody wants nor likes to arrive to their surf spot when the waves are firing and your board arrives damaged. You always want to check the airline’s surfboard rules & policy before booking a flight. Some airline’s don’t allow specific sizes or charge extra for larger boards make sure you agree with all of these terms before booking the flight. Before you start packing make sure you know what type of waves you are going to surf so you know what type of board is needed. Wrapping your board in bubble wrap is a great idea to prevent dings. A surfboard bag is a must for carrying purposes and extra protection. After finishing check the size and weight so that the board matches the airline’s guidelines.
