PRESS RELEASE: Surfers Against Discriminatory Airline Surfboard Fees - A WORLDWIDE PETITION PDF Print E-mail
By: Surfers Against Airline Fees   
Tuesday, 09 September 2008
    Surfers are some of the most traveled people in the world. Pioneering and exploring remote parts of the world to find that beautiful gem of a wave. These airlines would not even be making money from a lot of prime destinations if it hadn't been for surfers, places like Bali, Costa Rica, Central America, The Maldives, Sri Lanka and many remote destinations in Indonesia just for starters.

    What is shameful & discriminatory is that most airlines have imposed fees for the handling of a surfboard. Some airlines have banned surfboards altogether!  And they do this while other sporting equipment travel for free.
    Delta has upped the anti by imposing the single largest fee compared to all airlines except for those carriers that have banned us surfers from flying with them, namely British Airways and Bahamas Air.

    Below is a link to a petition to speak out against ALL airline carriers that have banned surfboards altogether and those airlines that charge surfers exorbitant fees for no benefit. Often when charged for boards to fly, the insult to injury is they will most often arrive damaged.

    Please sign the petition below & voice your comments and let the airlines know we will not stand for outright discrimination.

    We also would like to take the opportunity to express thanks & show support to the airlines that do not discriminate against surfers. They are: Qantas, Air New Zealand, Singapore Airlines, South African Airlines, TACA and Virgin Atlantic

    Surfline has an extensive list of airline fees here:

http://www.surfers-against-airline-fees.com page with a link to your site.
