It's getting closer! Only a couple more days and I'm out of here- heading south for some mainland juice- yes! I can only dream about how fun it's going to be surfing the spot on my 9'4". Last year, I took my 10' Stamps down there- I was stoked on how well the board worked but we've upgraded and refined since then and I can only dream about how fun it's going to be on the Viking.
Check out how I'm packing my quiver for the trip, it's pretty cool:
Here's the FCS stand up travel bag that I wrote about a couple months ago. Alexis hooked me up with this one at the FCS warehouse (the candy shop). This bag was made for a 9'6" so there's a little bit more room in it with my 9'4". Actually, there's room enough for the Vike, my 6'4" fish and two carbon fiber paddles! Check it out- it doesn't even look overstuffed. The boards are so light that it's not even too heavy to lug around.
Zipped open and spilling its guts- hopefully an overzealous ticket agent won't require me to do this when I'm at the counter at LAX. Alaska charged us $75 dollars a bag last time. On that trip I only brought my 10'er. My friends, on the other hand, had bags stuffed with multiple boards. Alaska's cool, they not only loaded up my over-the-size-limit stand up board but also only charged us per bag- not per board. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that our luck holds this time too.
