Default Flying with your board

So I will be heading to Utah in Jan and am flying on Southwest and they charge $50 for any luggage over 65 inches in total dimension. I have no problem paying for that, but is there any other way I can sneak under that limitation and still put my board in a board bag?

Southwest will count a snowboard bag as one of your two checked bags with no extra fees. You just have to be concerned about the 50lb weight limit. Which a board in a board bag is not a problem, but all the shit you stuff with it can become one. So you have already sneaked under that limitation...

SWA has NEVER charged me for flying with a snowboard.

As kill says, just load her up as one of your bags. I love SWA in that regard and will use them whenever I can if going on a board trip.

Same here, I've never been charged for my board bag.
