Early days - lots more to do on this part of the site
....all suggestions welcome !
The reason behind launching a site all about
Longboard Travel is to create a helpful page aimed at making travelling
with a longer board easier.
Those of us who frequently travel with boards over 9ft in length
usually start to encounter problems from as early as the initial
booking stage, let alone the problems of transportation and those
all too familiar hidden charges.
So what we are looking to do (with your help) is to make life
that little bit easier and share helpful tips that we've picked
up along the way.
We aim to cover all aspects includingdestinations,transportation,manufacturers
and much more.
If you've got anyhelpful hints to pass on PLEASE DO SO ,or if you have any travel
related stories/pictures, we will be happy to put them on the site.
QUESTIONS ABOUT THE SITE!!!!!!
Q.....Why only longboards?
A.....If you get a flight,cab,bus or boat and you've got a shortboard you usually
don't get too much of a problem.
With a longboard or 2 it's completely different.Most peoples answer is to either
charge you a lot of extra money to travel with your boards or to not let you
travel at all.
I've found myself many times waiting at the wrong end of a queue to see if there
was any room left for my boards OR trying to find a taxi big enough to take
them.(IT ONCE TOOK ME 4 HOURS TO FIND A TAXI BIG ENOUGH TO TAKE ME AND MY BOARDS
UP THE COAST IN MEXICO)
Q.....WHAT'S IN IT FOR ME?
A......By sharing our experiences we can hopefully make travelling easier,and
by doing so GET MORE WATER TIME....
