Choose the type of board bag:
Ideally you want a snug fit for your surfboard, the less it moves around the less chance there is of it getting damaged, to make sure you get the best fit choose a bag which matches the shape of your surfboard:
Shortboard- Designed for standard shortboard templates, usually for boards less than 19” wide.
Hybrid- A wider bag which is still the traditional shape, ideal for wider shortboards.
Longboard- Designed for long boards, often have a fin slot so you can leave the fin in place.

When flying pay close attention to the baggage guidelines for surfboards or sports equipment as you may find that you can’t fly with a bag which exceeds their maximum dimensions. A 7 foot triple coffin bag will weigh around 7 kg.
Heavyweight bags- Have 10 mm foam padding throughout as standard and are recommended for air travel as they offer more protection.
Lightweight bags- 5 mm foam padding is standard, they often have a reflective material on one side to keep the board cool in the bag, recommended for everyday use.
Board Bags are rated for the number of boards they can carry, the best bet is to remove the fins from your board if possible if you're travelling long distance, if you have glassed on fins we’d recommend putting a block of polystyrene or similar foam over the fins to protect them as much as possible in transit.
