HOW TO PACK
How to properly pack a surfboard for shipping
The following instructions apply for shipping a fish, short or longboard surfboard:
- Detach the removable parts and package them separately, such as the fins and leg rope. Protect each individual item with bubble wrap.
- Protect the surfboard by inserting it into a padded bag or wrapping it with moving blankets. Shelter the edges with foam and wrap it all with bubble wrap for extra protection.
- Use cardboard sheets to make the outer protection of your already padded surfboard. If you have a big enough cardboard box, place the padded items inside and add cushioning materials for extra protection.
- Use tape to fix the packaging and reinforce all edges and seams.
