i bought a surfboard for my 11 y o son who lives in sweden, i live in sydney australia. i tried some of the big shippers and found that it would cost twice the price of the board to ship to sweden.horrified, i did some web research and found u ship. enter 'the freight guy' and everthing is great! all round easy and positive experience. i don't ship alot, but now i know where to go when i do.
