Board Bag Fees

Board Bag Fees

Tis the season for traveling + surf trips! I was recently slapped with an astonishing board fee by American Airlines — $100 per board (not board bag), per one way flight. Why the airlines choose to rape traveling surfers way harder than golfers, skiiers, musicians, ect is beyond me. I wish I had this handy list before I booked my flight.
