Surfboard blank shipping 101

Long story short, it's kind of expensive to ship surfboard blanks. Freight companies would rather ship heavy pallets of steel than a big, light, fragile surfboard blank. So they charge extra for it...

At Greenlight we are always hussling to get the best shipping rates for our customers and have linked up with some frieght companies who give us decent deals and understand the importance of getting the blanks to you safely.

Greenlight is the only surfboard material supply company to take the time and energy to intelligently design surfboard blank packaging to reduce customers' shipping cost by up to 61% in most cases.

The secret to savings? We ship Greenlight EPS blanks unglued to save you the high oversized rate the shipping companies charge.

You glue it up, it takes about 5 minutes and it's easy, no special clamps needed. Video instructions here.
