United Airlines Surfboards Policy

United accepts surfboards, wakeboards and paddleboards checked as special items as long as they are packed in appropriate board bags and do not weigh more than 99.9 pounds (45.3 kg). The service charge for a surfboard, wakeboard or paddleboard is $150 USD/CAD (each way) for travel between the U.S., Canada, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, and $200 USD/CAD (each way) for all other travel.

The skeg/fin must be removed or well-padded. The entire board must be encased in a suitable container to avoid scratching. United is not liable for damages. Excess valuation cannot be purchased for a surfboard, wakeboard or paddleboard.

Boards and board bags weighing more than 99.9 pounds (45.3 kg) combined will not be accepted.

Note: On United flights, surfboards, wakeboards, paddleboards and board bags longer than 115 inches (292 cm) will not be accepted. On United Express® flights, surfboards, wakeboards, paddleboards and board bags are subject to the aircraft’s load capacities, and items longer than 80 inches (203 cm) will not be accepted. Surfboards, wakeboards and paddleboards will not be accepted during an excess baggage embargo, with the exception that surfboards will be accepted on flights to Costa Rica.
