 Post subject: board and kite travel bags
PostPosted: Fri May 07, 2004 2:38 pm 
I'm planning a trip to central america kiting for a few weeks - Anyone got any suggestions on the best bags out there to pack all my kit in? Need something that isnt going to fall apart after a few days.

NSI "Golf" Bag:

Looks like a golf bag so the airlines don't charge you extra for it being oversized. :thumb:

I use a Dakine airwagon.

Very tough, loads of room - 3 kites two boards + all other kit, good protection. A bit on the heavy side (6.5 kg).

I'd recommend it, if weight is not an issue. Often from the UK you can just pay a premium (£30 - £40 for a long return flight) for a 'surf board'.
The bag doesn't get weighed so you can take loads of kit with no worries.

I would certainly go for a wheelie bag.

Cheers
Dave

Becareful with the Dakine Air Wagon, I loved mine, but I quickly paid more then the bag itself cost in oversize fees after only a couple trips!

It all depends on the airlines, some won't even question, but ones like Hawaiian will not even blink before they slap you with a $80 dollar fee (each way!)

Just took the NSI golf bag on a trip to Hawaii and never got any fees or hassle. Plus it fits 3 kites and a board easily. Padded just as nice as the Air Wagon, and a lot easier to tote around. :thumb:
