BOARDBAG GUIDE 2019
Your boardbag needs are varied and many, from day bags to global warrior missions we’ve got the state of the art right here
To paraphrase the late, great Douglas Adams: a boardbag, [The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy] says, is about the most massively useful thing an interstellar hitchhiker can have. You can sit on it, you can sleep in it, you can use them as a bivi bag and even use them to transport your boards. A good boardbag will last you a good few loops around our big blue marble. As we’ve been banging on about elsewhere in this issue buying once and buying well makes a hell of a lot of sense. Boardbags tend to fall into two camps: day bags and travel bags. Your humble single board day bag is for your local trips, stopping the inevitable dings from lamposts and car doors while keeping your precious out of that vicious sun’s rays. Travel bags take anything from two boards and up and tend to be more robust as they’re made to survive the rigours of international airport travel and our nemesis: baggage handlers. Which means they often have wheels for ease of moving around. Here’s a selection of the best on offer in the current market, both day and travel, for most board shapes and lengths. Dive in and get your sled a new house.
