I've done quite a lot of surf travel and I've mostly been lucky except once and luckily it happened on the trip home. But the downer on this is that the airline took out a good chunk off my tail and I had plenty of protection there.

There is nothing the airline will do for it, any airline. You are SOL .

I just got back from Hawaii two weeks ago and instead of paying $250.00 on Delta to lug by board around, I rented once I got there.

I spent less than 30 minutes looking and found a Firewire that was the shape I surf. It was a quad and I like thrusters, but oh well. It cost me $65.00 for 5 days. Worked out great!

If your board was damaged by the airline, there's nothing they will do except say "Oops!"

Surfboard rentals at local surf shops have gotten a lot better over the last couple of years. Not worth bringing your board with your anymore.

I can see what you mean Jake but you would think that in this day and age you should be able to travel with your own board without a looming black thought that your board may get damaged.

And for me there is nothing like my own board.....
