Lately there were more and more news that airlines do not carry windsurf gear anymore or they increase the price or limit the amount of weight. TAP Portugal on the other hand makes now advertising with low cost windsurf board carriage.

Read what the PWA, who just ran the final wave event on Sal, writes about it:

LOW-COST WINDSURF CARRIAGE TO SAL, CABO VERDE WITH TAP PORTUGAL. If you’re considering a windsurfing holiday, there’s no where quite like the location of some of the PWA’s most memorable contests in Cabo Verde. And for the next year, TAP invite you to take advantage of their low-cost windsurf board carriage when you’re flying to or from Sal before the 31 December 2011. We’re told it’s just 50 euros each way in low season, and 75 euros in high season for all kitesurf, and windsurf equipment. And with their low season pricing including all trips from the 1st January to the 30th June, you could easily catch some pumping swell at the legendary Ponta Preta for much less than you think!
