    "So," I tried to get hooked up with the SOCal board delivery guy...famed "Leon" and was told directly from him that he's working only with shapers and surf shops directly now. The shops are uspet as they don't make any money and expose themselves to some liability for housing the boards before pick ups (that makes sense)....does anyone know of another delivery service available in California? DHL/FedEx of course....but I am thinking of private party service providers to deliver boards.


    Your local shop may have a different policy towards this, mine does not-

    Pilot Transport is supposed reliable and relatively inexpensive, used by many of the big shops and builders to ship boards. Always less expensive to have the board shipped to a local pickup warehouse in the area for pick up yourself, save a lot. Suggest giving them a call for a quote.

Issue is always having the board packed before pickup, as truckers will not haul an unboxed board.

    I might be heading down to San Diego on Friday. I can grab it and get it to LA or even Ventura if that helps. PM me.
