We have tried out the new Ryan Air programme for baggage. What maybe alarming for normal passengers, whereby they have to pay for every piece of baggage is actually brilliant for us windsurfers!

If you are planning on a windsurfing trip then a quiver bag and a double board bag will only cost you £30 to take away from a UK airport. Since you would have to pay for normal baggage anyway, this is a particularly good deal. (put your clothes in with your quiver bags!). If you combine this cost with an off season RyanAir flight then you can get to a great windsurfing destination for very little. (We would recommend avoiding Gatwick or Stansted, and going for early flights at less popular airports like Luton for ease of travel).
