beat it haole
Dependent on the airline, way cheaper to fake a wave ski as a fat surf board. On the broken neck thing, when I broke my neck was a dumb move on my part just on a slammy shorebreak, that said, in a surf kayak you can not bail if you get caught inside by mondo set, the boat could snap during a vicious beat down and you could break your legs and worse. Yes way safer on on surfboard, but surf kayaking and wave skiing are way fun...and SUP surfing can blend the best of both worlds. I do have to say that paddlers are so much more mellow and friendly than some surfers, when has a kayaker waiting to surf at a whitewater park screamed at another paddler to beat it!
