Our ace technique guru Jem Hall spotted this one while trying to book his winter getaway. South African airlines have changed their baggage policy and now clearly state.
"Canoes / Windsurfer and Hang-glider - To be accepted strictly as cargo."
We are not sure how strict they will be at the moment, but be aware when booking your dream windsurf trip to South Africa. Alternatively you could always bend the truth a little and tell them you have a surf board, a kite or a big set of golf clubs?
