I just got off the phone with United Airlines. To fly with a wakeboard (they consider a special item) will cost $125 each way. So I asked how about a snowboard? He said that would be considered a check bag equivalent which would be $15 each way. You can carry a snowboard in one bag with your boots in a separate bag all for $15. Same goes for water skis, snow skis and golf clubs (all $15). They have a wakeboard classified in the same group as a surfboard and luge board. Why not just go by weight or size?. By the way, the cost to overnight a wakeboard by UPS (if they use the dimensional weight as opposed to actual weight) will cost about the same thing. Of course the airlines know this I'm sure.

I'm wandering how often they actually check inside the bag. I know Ronix is coming out with their "Golf Series" bag and seems like another company already has one.

For anyone who has flown recently with a wakeboard, what has been your experience?
