    It all depends

    Are you planning on air, or ground shipment? If you fly with a board, many airlines can charge as much as another full fare seat. Too bad they won't let you just buy a seat for the board. Check with the surf shop where you buy the board, maybe they'll make you a "Buy-back" board deal, or someone who makes boards, like Stewart in San Clemente can give you a shipping cost estimate since they ship boards east all the time.

    Icons of Surf is another great shop in Sam Clemente http://www.iconsofsurf.com/ that had tons of cool fishes. I was drooling over them and the owner told me they ship lots of boards to the east coast.

    man i just checked their "on sale" boards...Gary Linden fishes for $500 couple of KG for $300. These are new boards - not used.

    You might want to check out ebay and see how much it costs to send a board from California to MD,This will give you a ballpark idea.Im going to say around $100.

    You may be able to take it on the train for less than shipping. I'd check into that first. If not, I know Moonlight Glassing ships boards for about $150 or more depending on size. Greyhound shipping and some airline shipping services will take boards for about $100. If you must ship the board, I'd contact a few shops before you head out there and find out if they will ship it for you and how much they charge.

    Good call, in fact Jp opened up a new shop in funky Leucadia next to the LongBoard grotto... or where that use to stand... something along those lines. Check out the website blog www.surfysurfy.net and he will have some incredible boards posted there. He should have his contact info there. If not, call his mother Sally at the Moonlight shop Phone: 760-942-3319. Email: moonlightglassing@gmail.com and the website is www.moonlightglassingsurfboards.com. Oh, and they are family owned and operated. You might recognize a couple shapers names that put their boards through this company.

    I'm a huge fan and have had almost all of my boards glassed there. The only boards that I have that were not glassed there were gifts from other people that didn't know my preference. Great people, incredible work. Your board will last longer being glassed there too. It's well worth it.
