Good Travel Bag: 101cm Mast with Pocket Board?

Postby PurdyKiter » Sun May 31, 2020 5:59 pm

I'd like to find the cleanest simple quality travel bag which will only need to hold a 101cm mast, 3 Clouds, CCS tiny bar, harness, and a 37 in Pocket board. Maybe wheeled.
Got any thoughts?

I wanted the same thing. I got a custom one built. Here's the thread I made about it, with photos. Let me know if you want contact info for the guy who built it. The nice thing about custom is that if you want it in a bit different size, you can get any size you like.

I am worried about baggage handling and traveling with a foil (after a number of damagad surfboards, even with good travel boardbag 😡).

Have been thinking about a hardcase style bag like this snowboard case. Length is adjustable, so can suit any masts. It would just mean making a very narrow pocketboard (<368mm width. Or a split board split down the length instead of the conventional split, lol), i dont really see a very narrow board as a issue, so might look at the option further.

Check out compound bow hard cases! They're roughly the same size as our equipment and they sell hard cases that are 42" long and 20+" wide. Be careful when reading the sizes though, as a lot of the hard cases has a handle moulded in and that is unusable width.

Nice, that does look like a well sized option.

Will definitively be stopped and searched at the airport now, carrying a bow case LOL :D :D :D
