How to Travel with an Inflatable SUP

We know you’re busy, especially if you’re planning an extensive SUP-ing trip, so, with all of that in mind, we’ll cut right to the chase. Simply put, yes, you can bring an inflatable SUP on an airplane. Please note, however, that it is too big to be a carry-on item, so you will need to check it just as you would a normal checked bag. Like any other checked bag, before you head to the airport, you will want to research and confirm all the limitations for such luggage. For instance, there may be weight restrictions, additional charges, etc., all of which are dependent on the airlines in question. In short, be sure to do your homework before heading to the airport.
