Last year I checked into Fed-Xing several boards to PR and it turned out to be very expensive. I believe it was something like $500. I'd like to know what kind of figures you guys get trying this option though.
took 2 boards to costa rica in the may through continental. only cost $95 each way and you can have 2 boards in the same bag. the "buy the boards there and sell em there" idea is the way to go. you'll ultimately save a few bucks. as for sending your board around the world via fed ex... good luck with that. i know iceybeatzjosh does it "all the time", but we all know that poser has never left the ****ty waves of oc... so he's just spoutoing off.
went to costa in february on us air - the web site said $80 ea way for a board but when I checked in they didn't charge any extra either way. Like charie said, it depends alot on who checks you in.
If you can get to florida & fly martinair boards are free.
