curve travel bags
« on: December 22, 2019, 09:02:13 AM »
Hey folks. Trouble finding a SUP travel bag for my 8'10" Sunova Steeze. I can get get a SUNOVA bag, but will take too long to get (and quite pricey) I was thinking of this Curve bag. Seems to tick off the 10mm foam and good zipper requirements, and seems to be a good quality. Not a "coffin" bag, but it is quite big and I could fit lots of packing in it to make it better.

It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I don't use.

Thanks yíall. I may have time for the sunova bag and itís not that much more (and will fit perfectly). If not curve seems to be the best option.

I received the Curve bag--thanks for the advice. Looks good. Seems rugged enough to make the trip to CA. Nice looking zipper, padding seems good and a number of handles on it. Fits my 8'10" Sunova Steeze quite well  (bag is 9'). I saw that other bags put additional padding in the front and back. This bag does not. Could probably use it. Luckily it has enough room so I can do some of the packing techniques that I have found in this forum and on Seabreeze--plumbing insulation, sheets of cardboard, etc.. Also, feel that I will have to run some sort of strap around it to tighten the bag a bit when I travel to take up the slack.

I will put the paddle inside the bag for the flight, but it will be good to have that paddle holder when I'm not in the air.
