^^ That is what I have done if they ask, never had a problem.
Also, like it was said earlier, putting your bindings in another bag helps. Last few times I've flown, I put all my clothes in my board bag on top of my board, packed my bindings and a duffel bag for my clothes in my carry on, they never asked a question. That was also with 2 boards in the bag, and it still weighed right under 40 pounds.
