United Airlines Kitesurfing Equipment Policy

United Airlines will accept one kiteboard or one bag containing equipment used in kiteboarding as checked baggage.

If the kiteboard or kiteboard container is over 50 pounds (23 kg) or is greater than 62 (158 cm) total linear inches (L + W + H), a $150 USD/CAD service charge applies each way for travel within the U.S. and Canada and a $200 USD/CAD charge for travel outside of the U.S. and Canada. The service charge is in addition to any excess baggage charges that may apply, but first or second bag charges do not apply.

If the kiteboard or kiteboard container weighs less than 50 pounds (23 kg) and is less than 62 (158 cm) total linear inches (L + W + H), standard bag service charges may apply.

The board must be well padded or the entire board must be encased in a suitable container to avoid scratching. United Airlines is not liable for damage to a kiteboard or kiteboard equipment.

Excess Valuation may not be purchased for a kiteboard or kiteboard equipment.

Note: On United Airlines flights, kiteboards greater than 115 inches (292 cm) in length will not be accepted. On United Express flights, kiteboards greater than 80 inches (203 cm) in length will not be accepted.

Kiteboards are not allowed during excess baggage embargo periods when no excess baggage is allowed. Kiteboards will be accepted to Costa Rica during an embargo period.
