Those of you who are familiar with FCS understand that since the development of their company, they have begun to offer more products than just removable surfboard fins. In fact, they now produce anything from surf leashes to surfboard racks and even luggage. One product that I have found to be very useful is their Dayrunner Surfboard Bag. FCS has several options when buying a surfboard bag, and the Dayrunner is very handy.
With the last couple of surfboards that I have owned, I used a surfboard sock to help preserve them. When I purchased the FCS Dayrunner Surfboard Bag, I found not only a great surfboard bag for keeping my surfboard safe, but also one that can second as a travel bag if needed.
I’m not talking intense travel bag, like airplane travel to other countries (although I have used it to travel to Hawaii with extra padding), but more along the lines of car travel. With the light padding that the FCS Dayrunner Surfboard Bag has, it is perfect to protect your board when you throw it in your car and drive anywhere as close as your home break or as far as your favorite surf spot. I use mine every time I drive down to Northern Baja California from Southern California, and it’s ideal.
The surfboard bag itself is equipped with a .20 in foam padding between either nylon/alloy or alloy/alloy material. The FCS Dayrunner Surfboard Bag holds one surfboard with or without fins and comes in several different sizes including 5′9″, 6′3″, 6′7″, 7′0″ and 7′6″. They are available at almost any surf shop and also online for about $60. A great deal and another great product by FCS.
