traveling with kiteboards
First, NEVER mention the word "board". They almost always try to peg
you into a set category which surfboards is a set category with
increased pricing for surfboards.
I just say, kite gear. They scratch their heads, I tell them I really
live to kite, and off I've gone. Only once, in Tampa, did they weigh,
measure and charge me extra.
Never say board!!!
We just kite :)
