Surf kayak on Easyjet

Post by Gary F » Sat Oct 25, 2008 4:32 pm

Hi all,

I'm flying down to Cornwall next weekend with my surf kayak and I've searched the forum and see that (especially in a bag) getting my surf boat onto the plane should be no problem. My question is what do you do with your blades? It'd be a tight squeeze to fit it into my boatbag. Could I strap it to the bag or would this raise questions at check in?

Cheers in advance,

Gary F

The safest answer is to book 2 pieces of sports equipment. I know this is expensive but it is safe. The alternative is to strap it to the boat bag and hope.

I flew out of Bristol going to bariz in the summer no boat bag, my blades just strapped to my play boat did not even look twice at it .

They even list paddles as an object that has to go in the hold on there site.
Just get there early be first in the que worked for me
