Any suggestions on how to ship a personal board across the country that I am buying in CA from a private seller to ME where I live? Airlines for my flight back will not take it considering it is a 9'10 longboard. As an individual, I am pretty sure I can't register for Delta Cargo? Got any ideas?

I'm using Daylight Transport on a regular basis. If you want me to run a quote, provide me the pickup zip code and the delivery zip...... I can probably get an amount off that alone.
Forget that, I threw it in there for shipment from Goleta CA to Portland Maine.....

Here's an inquiry I got the other day: Especiales para personnas en Mexico & Baja del Sur para transportacion de Tablas Hawaiianas.
Hello
My name’s Brian Bates. I live in southern Baja and my friend Max has one of your Fountain of Youth models that he swears is the best board he’s ever owned. I’m writing to see how I can get my hands on one and possibly another model as well. Please let me know. Thanks

Mon 8:32 PM
I ship worldwide. However, if you have a friend coming down your way that might be the answer. There''s quite a few guys around Todos Santos riding them. We might be able to hook up with a shaper friend or someone down there that get's Arctic Blanks delivered to them and perhaps Marty & Andrew can include your boards in the shipment. Food for thought. Otherwise I can get the boards down to San Diego for p/u. Marty referred me to Castores. Grupo Castores esta muy grande y professional. Servicio Mexico & Baja del Sur...
Seen by Brian Bates at Tue 8:42 AM

Tue 1:10 PM
Castores Trucking.......... I will get back to you. Where are you located, Todos Santos or elsewhere? Cabo? Los Cabos.........? Click on the video in this link: https://www.castores.com.mx. (it appears Grupo Castores has distribution in La Paz).

These are the guys being used by a lot of us in the business. It costs what it costs what it costs. Don't whine, just pay up & deliver so your customer can go surfing sooner than later. We all need our sanity.

Who is getting the board in Cape May?
Jerry Scrocca, a friend to Chef Jason Hanin who also has my sleds.

P.S. ....and no, I do not work for Daylight albeit my rep has left their employment. I told them "no big deal, he was useless & lazy compared to Jerry the previous rep I
worked with for years. The new guy was a lazy Russian guy that moved here 20 years ago & told me Ukraine is full of Nazi's. I just thought "if Russia is so gr8, why aren't
you still there?"

Here's a link I got today.
It may or may not be of use or interest..... I don't have time to fully look it over.

Have at it.
