||I'm interested, but after my experiences of trying to get a Skydancer to California /Australia last Autumn I would not hold out much hope for kites. To take a “sports bag” you are charged half the adult fare! All airlines seem to be cracking down on luggage size/weight.|

Yeah it can be done I took 3 Sea Devils SUL, STD & Vent and a foil.
I had to do some serious cutting down on my luggage and had to adopt the Top Gear method with under pants. Two pairs worn on separate day, first inside out, back to front & Vice-versa and one sock worn on alternate feet each day!
To be fair I had the Ryan air 15Kg limit in my case and 10Kg in my hand luggage!
However, the trick is to go on EasyJet as you get 20Kg and sporting goods is only £20 each way as opposed to Ryan Air’s £80. A Kite surf bag would easily around 20 large single liners or around a dozen dualies.
As far as I’m concerned her indoors has OK’ed the trip provide we stay at the hotel on the beach.
So some serious saving coming up as its £500 ahead + flights.
P.S. Anybody want to buy some kites?
