Hope they're paying shipping because it's going to cost you big time if not. USPS is the way to go everyone else will ass rape you like nobodies business. Just package it up as normal in the box and fill both ends with more news paper than you think you need.

^^What he said. It's expensive. Real expensive. If you live somewhere like Europe or Japan where boards are crazy expensive, it can be worthwhile and save you a few bucks though.

Ya, i'm not sure where he lives in the UK but i assumed i would just ship it as i normally would anywhere in the states. I manage a snowboard shop so i am used to shipping them. Just never sent one over the pond.

Thanks for the help guys. What is the estimated price?

That's what I was quoted to have one sent over here, but they jack up the price if the package is over a certain length.
