2016 COASTALWATCH SURFBOARD BAG GUIDE

It's hard knowing exactly what you get with a surfboard bag, they all look generally the same, right? WRONG! There are a few key features among top range products that will be the difference between your board staying in its mint condition or being dinged in transit.

So, we've made the choice a bit easier for you by putting together this comprehensive guide to the best 14, day and travel bags available this winter presented by Coastalwatch Chief Surf Forecaster and surf travel veteran Ben Macartney and Aloha Manly's Tim Hanrahan.

Congratulations to Jack Gearing, winner of the Ocean & Earth Double Coffin board bag, announced Monday 25 July.

Congratulations to Jeffrey Smith, winner of the Creatures board bag, announced Friday 22 July.
