I just wanted to throw this out there for the traveling surfers. Of course getting a good board bag is of utmost importance but beyond that; a few tricks can reinforce your board and save you from having a shocker after you open your board bag.
I am putting a link to an article from Surfing News Daily. I kind of frown on re-blogging but this article has some tips from myself so I guess I was a contributor. See how popular I am! Ha ha!
The article is here:
One helpful tip to note is creating two lumps on both sides of the board(s). It will really help to keep the luggage handlers from putting the nice flat case on the bottom and then piling suitcases on top of the flat surface.
Hope this helps your valuable cargo arrive in condition to rip some waves!
