I did a couple of 8fters last year (from greg liddle Kaui) and the shipping was more or less £600 but thats plus all the duty and customs fees and all that. It worked bloody expensive (each $725 board ended up at £900 each when everything was totaled up), I believe that sub 8ft package size is a lot cheaper as that is the price cut off. You might be able to get cheaper but i couldnt (7ft was a fair bit cheaper) and to be honest i would nt do it again. to much money and to much hassle (not greg just everything else). sorry to be negative, if you need anymore details just let me know.

Yep it's proper expensive, and a pain In the arse.
That Aussie 68 is a great board, I'm a big fan of the transitional v bottom, I also have an 8ft version and they are both amazing. But 2 however is to many :-D. Good luck with the Hawaii import, finding someone going over is your best bet.

Hi there Major Sir,
