  • Board bag for Baked Potato 55

    Hello everybody,

    I would like to buy a surfbag for my new 55 Baked Potato:
    - I was thinking of an FCS Dayrunner or Explorer bag for daily use and short 2-3 day car trips, but would need to know what size to order, as the board is quite wide and thick.

    Also, I will need to buy another larger bag for airplane travelling : which are in your experience the best board bags available for airport handling ?

    Many thanks and best regards ,

    I like these day bags:

    They also make it in a travel bag, which you could use as a day bag if you want to buy only one. The BP fits perfectly in both.

    Here's the travel bag:

    A 5'8" or 5'10" should be very roomy. The 5'6" would be a tight fit with fins in your board.

      b_online ProLite makes some nice bags:
      you will most likely need a bag a few inches bigger than to the board to accomodate the fins.

        If you're traveling on an airplane with your boards, you should take off your fins and protect the rails of your board(s) with something. I use pipe insulation and that works very well. Because you will need to pad your boards, you're going to want a little bigger of a board bag to accommodate the padded boards like hawaii_boi mentioned. I also like ProLite and Dakine bags.
