We used to fly United to get to Bonaire every year as it was a direct flight from Dallas instead of Miami San Juan that takes like 20 hours with layovers. They have had this embargo for years during the holiday season. I showed up with my whole family, a dog and like 1000 dollars in excess baggage and they refunded our tickets on the spot because they did not tell us about the embargo. American was a way longer flight but it was the only way to get all our stuff home. It really sucks to travel with boards so I have stashed boards around spots that I think I for sure want to go back to. In all reality I also look at it from the point of getting to buy a new board too. But yeah, fuck United airlines, should be a kitewide boycott!

I just flew on Southwest with my "golf bag"... I carefully loaded it and weighed it the night before to exactly 49.5lbs, and that is indeed what the bag check scale showed. I had to put a couple of extra things in my suitcase (harness and leash) to keep the golf bag under 50lbs. I used the kiosk to check my bags and I just selected 1 suitcase and 1 golf bag... no extra charge at all. Even though it is bigger than real golf bags, no one questioned me or measured it etc. Same deal outbound and on the return trip Thumb's Up
