How to pack windsurfing equipment for shipping

Knowing how to pack windsurfing equipment is the first step to a successful water sports gear delivery. Follow the steps below when preparing yourself for shipping of windsurfing gear by courier:

  • Detach or fold all parts of your windsurfing equipment. Put the folded sail into a resistant canvas bag.
  • Bubble-wrap small details and accessories and put them in a plastic bag.
  • Bubble-wrap the board, sail, and mast and fixate everything with tape.
  • Put your items in a sturdy cardboard box. Fill all the empty spaces with cushioning materials.
  • If your windsurfing board is foldable put it in a cardboard box together with all other accessories to ship via a standard shipment.
  • If your package is too big or you are transporting windsurfing equipment in bulk, you can put the boxes on a pallet for more security.
