Really, who's he flying with? We brought our gear down in "golf bags" and it was $100 each to sydney from vancouver.

Sounds like UPS is the go though.

With this much time in advance, he might even want to consider changing carriers.

Buy yourself one of those kiteboarding golfbags (there is a good one from best kiteboarding, it even says best golf on the side of the bag.) and if its under the weight limit than you wont have to pay anything.
