Longboards on planes

Heading on a long-haul trip and would love to take a log with me. Lots of airlines seeming to have very stringent limits - but people seem to travel with longboards and guns all the time.

Has anyone actually been turned away for a board that's too long? (rather than for having too many boards/bag too heavy etc.).

Any advice appreciated.

Travelled with Singapore Airlines and Garuda Indonesia with a 9'2" longboard, no problems. Well the first time I came home with a little crack in the nose (despite pool noodle coverage) easy fix though, but subsequent times no worries.
A friend also travels with a longboard similar length with Virgin, no problem.
