I know it was covered some time ago but there must be plenty of you flying around Aus with boards and sails. Advice needed please.

It seems when I talk to the airlines they crack it over windsurfers because they think of a sail as an old one piece mast still. I just want to fly to Perth from Adelaide with one board bag (10kg and 2.4m) and one quiver bag (22kg and 2.4m). Also need a regular checked bag of maybe 10 kilos.

What is the best way to approach this?

Always fly Virgin, no issues, pay for bags before you get to airport. Always refer to it as a surf board as it keeps it simple even if the bags are not in the shape of a surf board. Noone ever questions it.
