So I am looking for a travel bag, my biggest board is 6'1, and i found an awesome deal for a travel bag but it is 8'6. Is it a bad idea to get this bag, or is there no worry with having the extra room?

RE: Size

Not a good idea IMO.
Protection for board works well if the board fits pretty tight in the boardbag.

My biggest board is a 6'10 and board bag is 7'0

Last post is true plus it'll be heavy and difficult to handle.

How much spare room should there be?

Enough to fit a protection tail, nose and some rail as well, nothing is enough while packing your board for travel, always remove fins and dont leave any hard object on the deck or botton, use those big pokets with flat or flex stuff.

RE: Size

if you get a bag over a certain length, like 80 inches then a lot of airlines will charge you an extra 50 dollars, but if you get a 76 inch bag, or 6'3" then you'll be just oversized bag, not extra oversized bag.
