Default Best way to pack boards for air travel?

I'm trying to figure out the logistics for my wife and I for an end of the year trip. We want to take an iSonic 121 (75 cm wide), a Quad 92 and a Quad 74, an 8.4 and 490 mast, a 7.0 and 460 mast, a 5.5/5.0/4.5/4.0 and a 400 and 370 mast, 3 booms, 2 wetsuits, 2 harness, etc. Our luggage allowance is 2 bags per person of 23 kg per bag, so 4 bags between the 2 of us. So I was thinking 1 bag for clothes, 1 double bag for wave boards, 1 double bag for iSonic plus couple of sails, and rest of gear in a dakine rapid transit bag. Since the local shops don't stock any double bags there is no way for me to test if this works. Looking on the NP website their double bags weigh 10-14 kg, so I'm worried 2 wave boards will push the bag over 23 kg.

Anybody had any experience trying to do similar, or any good suggestions?
