Prolite Smuggler Bag 6’0” By Timmy Reyes
Whether you are traveling to Indo or Mexico or Hawaii, having surfboards with you makes life more difficult. The airline check in personnel just look at you differently. One hand rolling a suitcase and another dragging a giant 50-pound carcass filled with blades of fiberglass. As you probably know, some airlines charge you a flat fee for the bag and others inspect and count each and every board. But what if you could beat the system? Trick Lisa Chen, the nice China Airlines lady, into only finding two surfboards instead of 3? (we’ve heard Timmy stashes 5!). Save a couple hundred in excess fees, get the Smuggler bag. Because it has a secret pocket and it functions as a small profile bag with room for a family of 3 (or 5).
This bag has seen a lot in its few months in the hands of Surf Only. Falling off carousels while crossing borders to Mexico, enduring massive rain storms in Jamaican truckbeds, easy enough to carry with one hand while on a packed train in India. The Smuggler holds up in every type of condition a reckless traveler like yourself might endure. It is designed by Timmy Reyes, one of the most seasoned vagabonds in surfing, which means he knows what works when checking in boards to Lisa Chen. Just hide them wherever she won’t initially see, slide your passport across the counter, and smile.
