Kitesurfers love to travel and combine their sport in combination with a holiday. Besides the old familiar traveling by car, it is now cheaper to fly to your tropical destination. Many manufacturers have therefore developed "golf bags" because they are allowed to join the aircraft for free. At least, since the airlines have also woken up unfortunately. Kiteboardbags come in many types, sizes and designs. It is important that you choose a kiteboard bag that fits the board seamlessly. With most manufacturers, the number of kiteboards and kites that fit in is hidden in the name. For example, there is 2/4. Then it means that two boards fit and four kites. In addition, there is still room for your kitepump, wetsuit and trapeze.
Kitesurf travel tips:
- Inform the airline about what it takes for you to bring your kite
- Pay attention to the size and weight of the bag. A lighter bag also saves costs
- Most boardbags have a padding. It is advisable to add extra pads to your boards to prevent damage.
- There are bags with removable wheels. That saves weight and you put them under again. You take these wheels as hand luggage
- Unscrew the fins from your board to prevent damage to your fins and boardbag.
