Generally, the thickness of your surfboards, when added together, must be less than 5.5" to all fit in this bag. But don't forget to consider how your boards will be packed - what will be above, beneath, and between them (clothes, towels, etc.), will your fins be on or off - when you're considering how your surfboards will fit in this bag.

Great Bag, Great Price

This is a great bag that's is very well constructed. The outside is surprisingly durable and the inside has an ample amount of cushion. If you are traveling by air, this bag can realistically only hold two boards that are properly wrapped and padded, if you just want to throw it on your car for a drive to the beach it can easily handle 3. The inside padded straps and outside straps are a really nice feature and plenty of storage for fins/wax, etc. I'm not sure you'll find a better bag for the price.
How do you reinforce the rails?
The way to protect your rails while traveling is with this rail travel protector system
. It is a compact solution that fits nicely inside any surf bag and will keep your board the way you packed it.
Will I be able to fit a Walden MINI mega Magic in this case? It is 7' 6" , which i know the length is fine, but i'm concerned about the width and thickness. I really want to get two boards into this case. The other one is a 7 3" and a little thinner. i'm traveling on Jetblue to costa rica, so any advice is much appreciated
Our Coffin Travel Bag has a depth of 5.5 inches, for all of the lengths. So your two boards together would need to be under 5.5 inches in thickness combined to fit into it. Another measurement to look at is how wide your boards are - all lengths of the bags are 23". You should be able to use a 7'6" bag for your two boards if they aren't wider than 23" at their widest, and combined are under 5.5 inches thick.
The total thickness of my two boards is exactly 5.55". I have a 7'6" x 22.75" x 2.875" funboard and a 6'8" x 20.75" x 2.68" shortboard. I'm concerned that it's going to be a tight squeeze. I don't want to buy too much bag either, but I was also looking at the 4 bag coffin. Thoughts?
This 3 surfboard travel bag seems as though it should work for your boards, however you will definitely be using all the thickness allowed in the bag. The width and height of both of your boards are within the allowable parameters. There are two different surfboard coffins that you could also look at. This 4 surfboard coffin
would not work for your boards because they only allow for boards that are 22.5" wide. The other 4 surfboard coffin
will hold your boards but there would be a bit of extra room so it may be too much bag for you.
