Any surfboard over 5’11 is considered “oversized” by shipping carriers. Oversized packages acquire oversized surcharges imposed by the carriers. We have multiple shipping options via FedEx/UPS, LTL Freight and Air Cargo Freight and our team are always working to find the best rates to get your board to you!
Surfboards over 8’1 require LTL Freight. This type of freight is different from standard FedEx/UPS shipments, and can be quite expensive, but we will work as best as we can to find our cheapest, most trusted carrier based on the resources available. An alternative and often cheaper option is air freight, where you pick up your board from the airport freight terminal.
LTL shipping refers to limited truck load shipping (typically in a large truck) and is required for large boxes - longboards, mid-lengths etc. It differs from standard FedEx or UPS shipments. An outbound pickup is scheduled for all LTL shipments, and pickup will not be arranged until shipping payment is complete. LTL deliveries to residential locations require an appointment and the carrier will contact you via phone. Shipping to a business address or location may save you around $50 - $60 compared to residential delivery.
Just like you, we want your purchase to arrive on time and without damage. Our highly trained & experienced team package your items to ensure the safety and security of your package. We pride ourselves in going far beyond the industry standards and have an extremely low percent of damaged packages. Boards shipped via freight or national carrier will be boxed. Boards shipped with our local coastal couriers will be wrapped for protection.
Due to the fragile construction of surfboards, each one must be carefully packed to avoid damage in transit. This requires specialist materials and boxes. Each board is carefully packaged by hand, which takes a lot of labor/time and materials. We do not profit from boxing fees -
No, sorry. We cannot ship surfboards or oversized packages to PO boxes or APOs.
