    My daughter and I ran up to Long Beach, NY to get boards from @Walnuts & @Lackosense. 1 is going to @SharkB8 via @GearNut and there is 1 for @GearNut as well. Another 1 for @zippy. All in all a fun day driving to NY. These will all be handed off at the swap on June 28th at the Beach House. Some coming north for me, @michael and @bluemarlin04. This board train thing is unlike anything I have ever been apart of. I have helped out so many times over the years. I enjoy giving and receiving.

    I appreciate it and I will be heading back to hawaii in the fall.

    If anyone ever comes through and needs a board to borrow let me know! I’d love to repay the favor.

    Can anyone assist in getting a board from the swap to MD or possibly even as far as Wilmington, NC? It's a 9'7

    Well done. All it really takes is the willingness to drive a few hours, some toll $, and a tank of fuel. The benefit is seeing some nice surfboards and meeting new Jamboarders with the same interest.

    Nice Dave! Spreading stoke all up and down the East Coast. So wish I could head down for the swap - maybe next year...

    I can grab and bring down next time I visit the inlaws in MD. No trip set yet, but I assume one will be made this summer.

    Hi Jamboarders!

    I have a 6.6 board in a travel bag in MA that needs a ride south if possible. I'm located in NC, and it would be incredible if the board made it all the way down here somehow, but even a first leg to the NJ zone would be a great help. I'm up for coordinating a load of boards that may need rides north from NC this summer if we can get things aligned.

    Please reach out if you're travelling through the MA corridor any time soon and mahalo in advance for any support!

    Thanks,

    M8r/Mark

    Just an FYI you can ship greyhound bus box size max 82”L from Portland ME, Boston or Worcester MA to Wilmington NC
