Emirates will accept wind surf boards, kite surfing equipment, kayaks, body boards, pole vault or other sporting equipment as checked baggage and part of your standard baggage allowance, provided:
Any sails are detachable and collapsible.
It is appropriately packed in a hard-shell packing case. If not a Limited Release will be required.
For surf boards, the following precautions must be taken:
Fins should always be removed, or, if they cannot be removed, should be firmly packed with polystyrene foam.
Both nose and tail should have bubble-wrap or neoprene foam attached for protection.
The rails (sides of the board) should have cardboard down the sides to absorb shock.
The board should be packed in a properly padded surf-bag.
Should your overall baggage weight or amount exceed the normal free allowance, excess baggage rates will apply. Please contact your local Emirates office for information on excess baggage rates.
