not true. almost everytime i've traveled they have put that little piece of paper that says my bag has been opened and personally checked for any bombs and stuff.

last time i wrapped by board with a blanket. and they still some how managed to RAPE the nose edge of the board. it actually dented the metal edge and peeled off of the board. a little bit. the plastic-y stuff was wrinkled.

Men I would of complained, someone has to be liable for that. I have never experience anything like that, but you never know.

I don't know men I would of at least filed a report, I am telling you men someone has to pay for that. My friends coach bag was broken in the Miami international airport, not the airline but the airport broke it. She filed a report and the airport will pay for the bag to get fixed.

knowing how douchy the airlines are. they probably would've had to like fricken snap the entire thing in half for them to be liable. i also would have had to somehow managed to have snowboard-in-half insurance. =P

DEFINITLY use a bag that is designed for air travel - not just one of those single-layer jobbies. I always have had my bindings mounted. Wrap your boots in a base layer to keep them from scratching the board, and them put them in the bag next to your bindings to give them some protection. I also stuff my socks etc into/around the bindings to give them a little extra padding. Basically, when I fly with my board, all my snow gear including jacket and pants is in one bag - maybe not the smartest but it has always worked out for me. I have never been over 50lb, but if you are it will be around $40.

No locks, just be sure and be at the oversize baggage area when they deliver it and you won't run any risk.

I just returned from Mammoth. It was blast.

Here is the info on what happened to my bag. I wrapped my board in some towels and my jacket. On the way to CA my bag was not opened. On the way back to TX, my bag was opened. TSA will put a slip in your bag if they check it. They seemed to put everything back the way it was.

It was all good. This is my first season of snowboarding and I LOVED IT! I am an addict and cannot wait until next season.

My bag was checked by Security (they left a note in it) but I presumed that's because I put my Swiss Army knife in for the screwdriver and scissors. I carried two boards in the bag with a layer of polythene wrapping between them. I left the bindings on the top board and obviously took them off the lower board. The boots also went in the bag and helped to keep the bindings from moving. I also put in a couple of hoodies. All the stuff was in pristine condition.
My only gripe was them not managing to get the bag on the flight from San Francisco to Reno. That was frustrating given the fact that the bag had managed its way from Glasgow, through London Heathrow (one of the worst places for bags being lost) and had arrived safely in SF.

1. never under estimate the stupidity of tsa or ramp workers
2. locks can be purchased which have a key hole for a key that only the TSA is supposed to have (see rule#1)
3. if you can pay that much for a deck, get a good padded bag to protect it!
