FLYING WITH KAYAKS? We’ll be happy your buy your boat at the end of your trip if you manage to get down here. Depending on price and condition we’ll consider buying all kinds of boats.

Traveling with your boat can be really easy or very difficult sometimes, that is why rent Kayaks, but also is a potential pain in the butt, but here is some advise for you to make it simple:

First and most important get a kayak bag...if you take the time to get a fabric bag, (any bag works) for your boat (like the ones the new Jackson kayaks come in, that is the cheapest solution) you can pick those from any kayak shop, Or wrap in a tarp and put a big sign that says, WIND SURF EQUIPMENT FRAGILE. Very important DO NOT MENTION OR ADMIT to THE AIRLINES IT IS A KAYAK, because SEA KAYAKS are no different to them than WHITEWATER kayaks and SEA kayaks are on the NOT allowed list because they are so big and delicate. So call it what ever you want, surf ski, surfing equipment, surf boards, kite surf, anything you want but NEVER call it or admit is a kayak .
Just call it a WINDSURF, and add some webbing loops to the grab loops of the boat, pull them out of the bag and it will be easier for the airlines people to move them around so they don’t have any reason to complaint from the beginning. Keep it light so it doesn’t exceed the limits. (If you put your boating gear inside the boat, definitely have in a mesh bag or any kind of bag just in case you need to pull it out quickly, if they definitely not taking the boat so you can check in your gear at least.)

Hope for the best but always plan for the worst, if the boat does not get in for whatever reason, then make sure you showed up early enough to have time to put the boat back on the car or have something figured out as a plan B. ( just in case).
One more thing never take a NO as an acceptable answer, you insist and call a supervisor and tell them how you never had this kind of problem before and can not be possible they not taking your WINDSURF.

Christmas until New years will be hardest time to flight boats due to baggage embargos so be aware and plan ahead to any chaos scenario
Good luck!
