Thx for the suggestion. I also found duffel bag which would fit (Eagle Creek Migrate Wheeled Duffel 130L if anyone is wondering)

However, the microchip wasn’t available anywhere in Europe. Luckily the Airline actually made an oopsie with the odd size luggage and after rechecking they can now provide me space for a regular board bag.
I might still get a microchop at some point when they are available just to see if it can work as an holiday board so I don’t have the stress of odd sized luggage anymore.

I don't think I'm ready just yet for something as small as the Microchip, but I did notice they have some back in stock on Naish USA site if anyone was looking for one.

My recents trips were with Dakine foil bag which is about 4’ long. It fits plenty. 5/7/9 UFOs were in a compression bag talking 2/3 of carry-on bag space.
If I was riding short mast it could have been a fun exercise to get a 85cm long bag for all the gear.

it is such big needs for small foil boards in Europe, but they are not available, very strange.

Hello,
any comparison between this Naish Hover Microchip and the smallest PURE 77 x 43 by CrazyFly?
Thanks

Please, any of you could confirm the real weight of this board? and also the Mast base plate hole spacing? the width is important to me, to understand if I can also mount the CrazyFly Mast base plate which has 165 x 90 mm hole spacing.
(I am not able to find these 2 data in internet)
Big thanks!!!

1.9 kg - I think I posted it when I started the thread. And yes, 165x 90mm is the standard and it fits - I ride my Slingshot/Moses/RDB masts on it happily

It’s a channel, not through bolts. Everyone has been fitting their 90mm wide plates.
