Flying?

You can certainly get three boards in a bag. Keep in mind the weight limits though. 50lbs. Three boards and bindings will put you close to that. You might be able to throw in a pair of boots, or some other gear. Which is what I typically do when I fly to go ride some place.

I've had good luck with Dakine bags. I could probably fit 12 decks in there but most bags are only designed to hold one board+bindings. To fit more than 1 board and bindings you're definitely going to have to be creative, at least by removing the bindings from the boards, but maybe packing them separately.

ya we are flying. i was thinking since there are 3 of us and i think we get like 1 or 2 free bag checks plus our carry on, i can fit all my clothing in a backpacking backpack that counts as carry on and then check the boards as my free check and put what bindings and boots that dont fit with the boards in a duffel bag and then use another free check for that.

Out of curiosity, what airline are you flying where you only get 1 or 2 checked bags to split between three adults?

hmmm now confused. Why don't you just each get your own board bag and use that as your checked baggage.

My bag easily accommodates 1 snowboard mounted with bindings, boots, helmet, snowpants, jacket, gloves, googles, etc. I can slip another deck in there (unmounted) if I want to bring more than one.

Then put all your regular clothes/etc. in your carry-on bag.

There is a user here Jed who complied a list of the airlines and their regulations for checking in snowboards. Check out his page here:
Jed's Airline Page
I think ur running a risk stacking multiple boards in a single bag- upon inspection they might reject the bag and then you'll really be stuck- check out that link first. HTH.
