Re: [ksurf] Kiteboards checked as baggage
the deciever bag rocks. i've had mine over a year now
and i have yet to pay for excess baggage. a couple of
my friends have borrowed it and they have nothing but
praise for the beast. it does creeate a little bit of
a problem getting a cab, at least in LA, as they are
lazy and do not like big baggage.
the one time i was questioned i simply told them i was
carrying professional stunt kites. they had no idea
what i was talking about and they let it pass with no
baggae fees. use the skycaps, when available, and tip
them $5-10 they usually don't dig to deep.
be sure to check out "Into The Air: A Kiteboarding
Experience" street date 12/12/05.
