  • Friend asked me to ship him a 6’6 Stretch from NY out to LA. Does anyone have any services they’ve had good luck with, or have any shipping supplies they could offer up. Anyone wanna take it with them on a flight in the next two weeks and earn some good karma.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

  • I might have a box or two. shipping ups should be roughly around $200 and will take approx. 4-5 days
    No matter how hard you train, it all comes down to confidence.

    Thanks I appreciate the offer. My Buddy saw how pricey it is to ship and is holding off for now. I don’t know how shapers and places like surfboardbroker ship for $100 or less

  • Throw it in a board bag and put it on a Greyhound bus for [size=78%]$100.[/size]
    [/size]
    So heavy you can't even pick it up.

  • If anybody has a box - I have been desperately looking for one. I live in LB but would be happy to meet up anywhere in the area. Thanks!

  • i just moved to SD and shipped everything that didnt fit in our car on amtrak, including a triple board bag. they charged me $100 for the bag. The amtrak website will tell you i think $75 per board, but i had no issues. I had to declare that my boards wouldn't be insured because it wasn't a "hard case"


    drop off in penn station. It's a little crazy but a cheap way of shipping things.


    Make sure you wrap them like crazy, these guys do not care at all.
