How to Pack a Skateboard for Travel


Bringing your skateboard along on vacation, a school trip or when visiting relatives, for example, is simple to do as long as you take the time to plan ahead. Whether you will be able to keep the skateboard with you or have to pack it away will depend on your mode of travel.

Keep It With You

  • The most efficient way to carry a skateboard is to use a skateboard backpack. This carrying case is similar to a regular backpack but it contains straps specifically designed to hold a skateboard. No matter your mode of travel, the skateboard should stay secure in the straps and allow you to keep all of your carry-on belongings together.

Pack It Away

  • Many airlines require that sports equipment like a skateboard be checked baggage rather than taken on board the plane as carry on luggage. Room permitting, you can pack the skateboard in your suitcase. Wrap the board in a plastic bag or old sheet to protect your clothing from any dirt. Alternatively you can use a skateboard case, which is a self-contained carrying case that usually comes with wheels for easy mobility. Packing the board in a cardboard shipping box is another option. Wrap the board in bubble wrap for safety before placing it into the box. Make sure the skateboard and the container that it is traveling in are clearly labeled with your name, address and phone number.
