Where can I get a board« on: March 02 2005 16:03:00 »
Just got back from Australia, caught the surfing bug. Anyone know where I can get a board.....and I'm not buying 8 from Montreal. I live in the GTA so if you know any good shops, please pass them on.
I know I know, I should have bought one when I was down under, believe me, I'm kicking myself for not getting one.

Actually... i go to boardsports a lot and they really don't have a great selection of surf boards. very expensive as well. I was searching for a board in canada and found a place online in Nova Scotia. Kannon surf shop. they responded very quickly to my questions and there shipping costs are reasonable. Not to mention they have pretty good boards.

Funny - I'm in Australia now and I am figuring out how to get the board I bought home to the GTA! (I have to take a few small planes that wont take the board) One shipping company told me it will cost around $450 - which is more than the board cost itself..... If you wanted anything over around 6 feet, dont kick yourself too hard, getting it home doesnt seem too easy :S

Molly, I've flown with surfboards and kayaks (4m long) for 15 years. The best course of action is to simply show up at the airport with the board as one of your two alloted bags. It makes it under the weight and the max I've ever been charged is $50 - but often its free if you are nice to the check-in boy or girl. Shipping or going cargo is a headache and ALWAYS more expensive. It will fit on a plane - no worries mate. If it doesn't fit into the container, it fits on top. Just show up at the airport a few hours early so if (and in my experience it never has) they reject your board (someone will have to have pissed on their cornflakes for that) - you have time to walk it over to cargo and cry for a good fee.
