    Travelling to New Zealand and bringing definitely 3 to maximum 4 boards. Biggest is a 9'3 Takayama Dt2 followed by a 6'3 x 20 x 2 3/8 Pavel bonzer egg and smallest is a 5'9 x 20 x 2 3/8 McNeill twin fin. No glass ins on any. Maybe another midlength in there but not sure.
    My question is what's the best/safest/smartest way to go? Would like to have them all together to save time and hassle.
    Also anyone who has something (reasonable) for sale/rent/borrow please chime in. Coming back early February- at least that's what the plane ticket says...:dude:

    Thanks

    Pool noodles are your friends.

    Finward. Can you fit a 10-0 in yours? Mine will fit a 9-10 but I've heard of a center extension part to add a bit. Pool noodles and a inflatable pool raft. There is a inflatable board bag company but I don't know what length they go up to.

    I've got a hard case up in the attic. Forget the length, but it's bigger than 9'3". Its yours if we can get it to you and return whenever you are done. Can drop off with Mac this weekend and he can get to NY/CT border.
