Island hopping w/surfboard

Travel Forums Australia / New Zealand & The Pacific Island hopping w/surfboard

I really want to island hop from Fiji, Cook Islands, and Tahiti this summer. Is it relatively easy to do this? Any carriers you suggest?
Is it easy to do this with a 7ft surfboard or should i just backpack and rent a board at various places?
Any suggestions appreciated!

Stuntman, I'd take a board with you, definitely worth it - but it depends on how serious you are about getting waves. Not sure about carriers or excess baggage fees - ask around the airlines. You'll be stinging if you turn up somewhere, the surf is A+ and you've got no board or possibly worse, end up paddling out undergunned on a flakey rental/lender.
