After checking my race board to fly to the east coast from texas, and as usual had to tall them it was a surfboard so they would charge me ONLY 75 bucks. then in security i got a bag check because i had my carbon rista fins in my backpack and the lady was telling me that the trailing was really sharp and could be used as a weapon, to which i reply, its not worth hitting someone with a $400 piece of plastic! i mean really? but in the end she let me go.
wondering if anyone has had troubles with airlines in the past with tsa, especially race gear.
