A: Check out this pdf PACKING LIST
- Q: WHAT BOARD(S) DO I BRING?
A: Please pack boards in boardbag and keep as light as possible for handling. For all destinations we recommend a standard short-board and a backup with a little more foam, unless the forecast deems otherwise.
Baja California: Max allowance: 2 boards in board bag + 1 longer board with or without bag. Please pack 2 boards in board bag and keep as light as possible for handling, as they will be in and out of the truck often. We recommend any version of your favorite short-board, fish, mid-length, or longboard, that goes well in all conditions.
Tahiti: Max allowance 3-4 boards in board bag. We recommend round tail, round-pin short-boards with standard dimensions. The waves are steep, so longer boards don't do as well in the pocket, but volume definitely helps.
Galapagos: Max allowance: 3-4 boards in board bag. We recommend any version of your favorite short-board and a backup with a little more volume to work in larger faster conditions.
