Surfers Against Discriminatory
Airline Surfboard Fees
Surfers are some of the most travelled people in the world. Pioneering and exploring remote parts of the world to find that beautiful gem of a wave.
Surfers also travel for business, family and a variety of other leisure pursuits where we might also bring a board with us.
What is shameful & discriminatory is that most airlines have imposed fees for the handling of a surfboard. Some airlines have banned surfboards altogether!
Most often these board bags are lighter and smaller than some golf club sets, Skis & Snowboard bags w/boots that travel for free!
Delta has upped the anti by imposing the single largest fee compared to all airlines except for those carriers that have banned us from flying with them.
Below is a link to a petition to speak out against ALL airline carriers that have banned surfboards altogether and those airlines that charge surfers exorbitant fees for no benefit. Often when charged for boards to fly, the insult to injury is they will most often arrive damaged.
Please sign the petition below & voice your comments and let the airlines know we will not stand for discrimination. Also, please pass on the link to your friends & family for more support.
We also would like to take the opportunity to express thanks & show support to the airlines that do not discriminate against surfers. They are:
Qantas, Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, South African Airlines, Air Tahiti Nui, Royal Air Maroc, Sri Lankan Airlines, Malaysia Airlines, Emirates and Virgin Atlantic
Surfline has an extensive list of airline fees here:
And the following site has a comprehensive list of all related airline fees:
