Airplane Travel - Remove Binding From Board

I just got a Dakine Low Roller fully padded bag and they said(where i bought it from) I could leave the bindings on. Obviously I would fold down the highback and ratchet the straps so they are not free to slide around. Throw my boots into the proper pouches on the side(should help make it more durable. Then pad the bag with my pants and outer jacket and maybe some of my mountain hardwear and northface undergear and fleece.

Is this safe? Or should I put the board in the bag and take off the bindings and pad them and reattach when I get there?

I'd put clothing ontop of the bindings after you get everything strapped and folded down and what not. If you've got a helmet, toss it inbetween the bindings, and you should be fine.

That is what I thought!

Thanks guys!

Boots will be on either side at the end of the board and it should be fine. Delta also loads them at a separate time from the rest of the luggage which is nice

i have a big old 6 foot padded drag bag; in it generally goes 4 boards. i put my biggest (powder) board on the bottom wrapped in a towel or dressing gown or whatever and then lie on top of that, my smaller (junker board) with binders attached.

in the 'roof' section goes the 1 or 2 planks of my missus, both without binders but again wrapped in towels / similar. in between all this goes helmets with goggles in side; socks and undies etc in amoungst the binders, boots and tool kit at the tail end. the binders keep it all compartmentalised and the boards give rigidity and sturdiness to the whole package.

usually about 25kg which is tolerable and within limits. lovely!

Just coz you don't understand it
Doesn't mean it makes no sense!

yar we got it sorted pretty good.

me and the missus have no motor and so it is generally taxi, tube, train then plane when we travel. she has all the soft wear ion her suitcase drag bag roxy thing and i take all the hard wear (with a bit of padding) in the wheelie coffin, whilst the fragiles and inflight go in ruck sacks as carry on.

we go at it like the A-team in full on 80s montage fashion! job done in less than 30! raaahhhh!
