Thanks! We were in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. The inflatable boards are perfect for traveling. The rentals were $25 per hour, and that didnt make sense to us.

Thats really interesting. I was wondering if you had any difficulty with the airlines traveling with your inflatable boards?

My wife and I are going to the Cook Islands in October and Id like to take my inflatable. My only concern is that the bag my inflatable transports in measures approx. 38 x 16 x 14. Added together this is 68 and Air New Zealand has a limit per bag of 62 linear inches. I note that they have a separate category for sports equipment and I just sent them an e-mail this morning asking about this. I am thinking I will be exempt from the 62 linear inches because its sports equipment, but at this point Im not sure.

I really dont want to get to the airport and find out they wont allow me to take my board, or that they are going to charge me some exorbitant price for taking it. I already have to pay an extra $160 each way because this is my second bag. I would prefer not to have to pay even more money because its oversized, or my worst nightmare that when Im at the airport a couple of hours before the flight they tell me I cant take it with me.

I don't paddle a lot of flat water, but this is more of a fun commute to the surf.

I'll paddle with my GF from New Brighton beach up to Privates, cruising right along the cliffs the whole way.

@Quickbeam, we didnt have any issues - just some curious TSA and customs agents about how the boards worked, were they easy to travel with, etc. Each bag/board weighed in at 32.5 lbs and was not classified as oversized. We flew Southwest who always seems to be a bit more lenient than other airlines.

Sounds like you have an incredible adventure coming up.

Thanks 4RN4FN,

I appreciate your feedback. As for our trip, we are very much looking forward to it. Weve been to Rarotonga before - three times in fact, but its been almost 20 years.

I can't use the preview function anymore prior to posting, so I'm checking to see if anything will post at all. Edit: Pictures still post but I still can't see anything on preview prior to posting. Anyone else having this problem?

Because of this site's software and how it was designed, you won't see any pictures in the Preview. I'm not a fan of this action either.
