Do You Love Cheating Airline Board Fees?

When the airline employee glances over the counter and asks how many boards are in your bag, what do you say?

Two.

Then they look down at your bag that’s bursting at the ziplock and quip, Only two?

And some clothes, you hopelessly mutter while your head spins with thoughts of, don’t you dare open that thing…

Because nobody wants to pay the additional $100-150 charge for their third board.

No. Body.

We’ve recently got our paws on Pro-Lite’s Smuggler Bag, which abides by the foolproof arithmetic of 1+1=3. It’s been tried. Tested. And approved.

Be smug.

For any surf trip, if you’re planning on seriously surfing, or enthusiastically bogging turns, dodging tubes and occasionally bouncing off the reef, you need three boards.

One for head high to overhead fare. A back up in case your go-to breaks. And, one for when it gets big. Because on a surf trip, you aren’t allowed to have excuses of being undergunned push you into bar table talk of I’d be out there if I had my step up.

So, the next time you stroll into LAX, Sydney or whatever your designated international airport is, toting a few boards for out of the country travel, keep Pro-Lite in mind.

And, when the lady at the counter asks you how many boards you’re carrying. Not only say two but show her.

Because you love cheating board bag fees.

We all do.
