Just got back from a tropical surf trip with waves everyday in the head high range. I traveled with 3 boards in my bag - i lucked out because Jet Blue allows 1 board per bag but didn't inspect my 6'6" coffin bag that clearly had more than one surfboard. Although super fun to have three great boards with me for the changing conditions and different waves. I became increasingly interested in finding a board technology that was fun to ride and there was a VERY tiny chance it would snap in good surf. The only time I ever traveled with one board I snapped it on a heavy low tide reef and spent the rest of my time using shit boards. This is the reason I bring multiples now. I feel like I can find a good versatile shape for my style and waves I frequent but unsure on the technology side of things because I have only ever had standard poly boards. In addition to that - my buddy who was just with me brought one board - his 10 year old Aviso - Lost Round Nose Fish. It is bomb proof and a blast to ride in almost everything. He wraps a towel around the nose and his wetsuit top around the tail and throws it in a day bag. I was insanely jealous as I spent an hour wrapping up my 3 boards and as I lugged them through airports. I did a bit of searching for an aviso but it looks like you can't find any for sale as they went out of biz a number of years ago. Anyone have any advice on other good technologies that feel good underfoot but can handle hollow surf and airline baggage tosses?
