Maybe now you can reconsider taking that surf trip...

July 27, 2017

With quiver or without? That question plagues every surfer who's ever dreamed of or planned a surf trip by air, especially last year when several carriers serving the most popular surf destinations decided they'd increase restrictions and jack up the charges for "oversized sports equipment baggage", some by as much as three or four times the original fee.

After quite a bit of backlash, some coming from the most prolific of sources including 11x surfing world champ Kelly Slater and Hurley brand founder Bob Hurley, many of those airlines backed down their rates and board count restrictions recently, taking a friendlier (skies) approach to the surf community in general.

If you back burner'd that dream trip to search for perfect surf somewhere only a set of wings can take you, now might be a good time to revisit it.

Check out Surfline's latest list of board bag charges and restrictions here and, if you're looking for a new bag for your next trip, even that's to your local spot down the street, the entire line from Destination Surf can be found right here on unitedsurf.com.
