    Since many on here spend a lot of time on the beach in Hawaii and chairs and an umbrella are a must have this is what I came up with. Often we go twice a year (Sept and June) and renting was not an option. We bought Tommy Bahama chairs and take out the two bolts holding the chair together (use 1/2 inch box or open wrench and 5mm Allen wrench) and it fits in a 24"x24" box purchased at UPS. We also put in two beach umbrellas bought from Portbrella Travel Umbrella Co. and our snorkel gear for two. Alaska ships this for free as your checked bag as it fits in their requirements for a checked bag. We put strapping tape in the box and and carefully cut what is on the box and reseal when we get ready to go home. A box will last four trips round trip if carefully handled. The box is a little unwieldy so we try not to carry too far.

    The Portabrella co makes excellent beach umbrellas that fold up to 24" and these are the only ones we found that would fit the box, the Tommy Bahamas will not. This is the company website and they ship a second one for $1 extra. We bought two and with shipping to California the cost for two was less than $100. Maybe this will help some regulars to Hawaii.

    Our solution for beach locations consists of flying Southwest and use a combination of portable beach chair and Sport-Brella that attaches to the chair. The Sport-Brella slips into the chair bag so it is a single checked item. Since Southwest allows two free checked items, we can each check our chair/umbrella combo and a suitcase, which is plenty for us.

    Now obviously we have not done this to Hawaii, but we will be able to as soon as Southwest starts flying there next year! We actually do this for traveling to our daughter's national softball tournaments as well.

    I got my Tommy Bahama chairs online and saved the shipping boxes. I plan to tape the two boxes together and check both as a single item. I ordered a sun shade as well, but that arrived a bit longer than i hoped and don't that quite figured out. The Portabrella looks cool, but i dont want to buy something else just yet..

    I wish I taken a picture but we bought 4 Tommy Bahama chairs and one boogie board. We ducked taped the chairs to the board. The airline accepted them and they made it home fine.

    I thought you were going to remind me to get them out of my yard before the storm comes.
