    Hey Jammers,

    Im located on the east coast. I've been talking to this seller about buying this Bing

    https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/spo/d/100-bing-noserider/6417584876.html

    Would be helpful if I had some third party help so that I don't put too much of a burden on seller. Anyone from around that area and willing help close the deal and help with getting it shipped out east? Much appreciated.

    I’m flying to Orange County from NYC in a week. Could fly it back with me to NY if that helps.

    Oh dude that would be sweet! You think lugging a 10ft board through the airport wouldn't be too much of a burden? I've heard some airlinr disaster stories.

    I'm located in Long Beach, so I could pick it up and deliver it to Foam Ez (Westminster) for shipping--but it'll have to work around my schedule. I'm a M-F 9-5er.

    PM me to discuss further.

    I’ve flown nearly a dozen boards back and forth. Only had one ding, and it was a minor fix.

    But you gotta buy a high quality bag, and then I cover the board in bubble wrap, with pipe insulators on the rails and maybe some cardboard over the deck.

    JetBlue charges $50 for a board and another $50 for an extra bag. So you’re looking at around $200 in costs for the flight, the bag and the materials. Might be cheaper to have it shipped.

    @ElBrooklyn thank you kindly for your consideration :) you ever travel with a santa monica surfcase? I've got a 9'6 case here in NY and a one foot extension currently in Oceanside CA, let me know what you think.

    I’ve traveled with big rolling coffins. But never the surfcase, which looks cool.

    The problem with using that, though, is that it’s gonna cost $100 to fly it to Cali empty, then $100 to fly it back. So still...at least $200.

    Unless you can find someone who needs a board delivered to the west coast.
