Travel dispatching 1 (regular) luggage - possible?

I didn't get into winging yet, and maybe this is a pipe dream, but would it be possible to fit:

- inflatable board (something like the gong hipe 5'1'')
- 5m wing
- 90cm wide front wing, 90cm long mast, fuse and stab
, all into 1 (almost) regular piece of luggage?

I was thinking of something like this https://www.ospreyeurope.com/shop/it_it ... r-120-2018, yes, it exceeds the 158cm l+w+d rule, but it's a risk I'd be willing to take based on past flights.

Internal length should be just enough for front wing and mast. 5m wing compressed as much as possible with compression bag. Main problem is the board, Hipe original bag seems too big, not sure if it would be possible to fold it differently, considering the plate..., and use compression straps.

I know it's a tall order, but wondering if anyone has any ideas, experiences, bag/gear suggestions, etc?
