Default Shipping a board help please

Anyone know which company is the cheapest way to ship a board internationally(from US to Canada)? I'M not sure if I am doing it right online(to see the quote).

Shipping a board : 62x16x4 (LxWxH) / 8 pounds.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thank you

Do not ever ship anything to outside of the US by courier (such as UPS or FedEx) of any kind. Otherwise your buyer will get kill by absurd brokerage fees.

Use USPS Priority only. A board of size around 150-155 should run about $35-40. I just got a 153 shipped to Canada last week from the States via Priority and it cost exactly $37.70 in a big cardboard box.

I have over an accumulated feedback count of 600 on Ebay. Do not ship UPS or courier.

That's what I've been hearing/reading. I'M getting a quote of $40 from USPS(assuming I did it right). Looks like that's the way to go.
Thanks brotha

if you live close to the canada/us border (within 2 hours) ship it to a PO box or a warehouse in the US that will store items for you. (i know there is one in buffalo.. i don't remember the name) drive over the border in snowboard clothes and bindings in your trunk. pick up board, eat cheesecake factory come back tell the customs officers you went snowboarding

(no shipping fees/no taxes/no ridiculous overage? brokerage.. whatever that ridiculous fee is.. u know the one they charge u when they show up at your door... "here are the $50 dollar shoes u ordered and an extra $60 fee... ohh u don't want to pay that... that's ok we can take ur shoes back...)
