Travelling with SUP equipment

Discussion started by Hacky 3 years ago
I am looking for information concerning flying with SUP equipment - boards and paddles. Flight companys don´t realy have valid infos - especially not on their homepages and travel agencies are mostly clueless as well. Some want to ship my equipment by cargo some say it´s possible to send with a normal flight as sport equipment. I am very thankfull for any "Real life" information regarding this topic as i plan to travel with my equipment.

Red Paddle Co makes an entire lineup of high pressure, super rigid inflatables (from surf boards to race boards) that pack up into an awesome travel/backpack/luggage bag. It's big enough to hold board, 3 pc paddle, pump etc. - weighs under 40lbs (19kilos) and it goes on as 'checked luggage'. I hear only bad things about trying to ship fiberglass boards on planes.

3 piece werner paddle and an inflatable fly just fine as a casual tourer and "resistance trainer".

I had to create a new account - as the token send to me was 5 times invalid...

I am still curious about the information regarding SUP luggage and travelling with SUP equipment ... is there any "pro - traveller" who wants to share his experiences .... ???

highly appreciated!!!

Hi Hacky, most racers I know have their gear shipped their boards as cargo, not by plane. Non-racers can always use inflatables. The Shubu's by Boardworks, for instance, come with a backpack that allows you to check in just like lugagge. But for bigger boards, esp race boards, looking for freight rates is probably your best bet.
