Is there any place that sell those bags on-line? I live in Chicago and i cannot find them in any windsurfing store.

Hi Sebo1975,
As far as I know, the Starboard board specific travel bags and quiver bags are not imported into the USA.
Trident Sports (USA Starboard Distributor) has their own line of bags that fit and travel very well, but they are not custom fit/board specific like the Starboard bags from Thailand.
Epic Gear, DaKine, and Neil Pryde all have lines of bags that fit Starboard products, but once again, not custom fit/board specific.
Hope this helps,

Ok, so are there any stores that sell those bags on-line and ship them to US? Is it maybe possible to order it from Tayland?

Hi Guest,
The reason that no one imports board bags to the US is that board bags are considered "textiles" and a different import license is required for textiles plus there are other import technicalities that make it difficult to bring them in.
You might try contacting the Amara Windsurfing Center in Pattaya, Thailand.
Amara has good relationships with Starboard HQ so she may be able to get the bags you need and ship them to you.

You might also try Bluefinz in Singapore.

I'll ask Starboard HQ who imports the bags that's closer to the US and get back with you.
Hope this helps,

I am surprise nobody sell those on ebay. If it is so difficult to buy them in US, it should be a good idea.:D
