What is the most you are willing to spend?

It is difficult to find a regular luggage bag that will fit a board that big. There are some large duffle bags, some on wheels, that might be big enough. TJ Maxx, Marshalls, Ross, Walmart might have one in your budget. There are also garment bags big enough but not sure that would work.

You might also think about putting it in a cardboard box and wrapping it in plastic packing tape. You should be able to find a wake board cardboard shipping box at a sporting goods store in your area. I did that once and shipped my board ahead by U.S. postal to a local friendly kite surfing store at my destination and they held it for me until I arrived. You could also take it on the plane with you that way in the box.

Amazon shows some kiteboard golf style bags close to $100 so they are out there and may be at stores.

Smart guy. I didn't know golf equipment is fee-free. You should have told me first. I guess I'm going to have to buy one of these "golf" bags for Kite equipment and see if I get lucky enough to pass through the checked luggage without paying the fee for kiteboards. ($150 each way)
No wonder the Liquid Force Bag reads Golf on it. :lol: Sneaky industry helping us in our travels.

If you have nothing good to say then dont say it. Let's just leave this thread to disapear.


You just sound lazy. Google what you want to buy then filter by your location then pick up the phone and call the shop to see if they have it in stock.
