Any advice on traveling (via airplane) with my paddle? I'll be going from California to Chile. It was recommended that I use a cross-country ski bag but there are very few that are even long enough and they offer very little support. I use a 197 and most ski bags seem to be between 175 and 190. And those that are long enough still don't have much protection. Do any of you have a recommendation for a bag?? And do I stick a two by four in there to protect it? Any options you've found that work well for ensuring that my precious (and expensive) paddle doesn't break in transit?
I'm thinking of buying this
bag since it seems to be the only one I can find long enough. I hate to spend that much though...
