Hey guys,
I will travel pretty soon with my two kites and 1 board, and I think I need a bag where I can pack everything in. My board is 132cm, but I will maybe buy another one bigger some day.
I am looking for a bag that can fit:
-2-3 kites (3 is better)
-1-2 twintips
- 2 bars
- 1 pump
- a harness
- and maybe some clothes, and that is not oversized for airplanes.
I want a bag that costs under 150 dollars, and even if possible, under 125 dollars, but that is still well built and durable.

Does anyone know any not-so-expensive bags that can last a long time and that fits my requirements?
Thanks
Thomas

I have a Cabrhina golf bag which I managed to fly from the UK to Australia carrying a 10m, 11m and a 14m. Plus two twin tips with fins and bindings removed, plus some clothing. You might be able to fit a harness too?
I don't think it cost me more than £75 either but don't quote me on that.

Good luck! :)

You need a bag smaller or equal to 140 cm. It will be good if it has a hard bottom and trolley wheels. You can fit in 2 TT boards under 136 cm, 3 kites with one bag, harness, 5/3 wetsuit, 2 bars and clothes for a week of fun under the sun :D all this is roughly 25 kgs. If you keep witghin theese dimensions, you will be able to fly most airlines without paying extra. I have been travelling for the last couple of years with a Mystic Gearbox 140. You should be able to get it for around 130 USD +p&p. And a tip, always put the clothes and the hevy stuff near the wheels:-) don't ask me how I know this:-)

The golf disguise worked absolutely fine for me flying Virgin Atlantic from Heathrow to Australia in 2011.. and flying interstate with 2 or 3 different carriers in Australia all throughout 2010 and 2011..

I've also heard of people saying their kitesurf gear is camping equipment, even showing some of the canopy of the kite to the attendant and getting it on for free.

Dakine wagon! I've gotten nailed at the counter with the fakey Golf bags. Epic has a similar version of the Wagon that doesn't look suspicious either.
