Shipping SUPs

My Jimmy Lewis 10 footer arrived at its new owner's home in Ohio today, safe and sound. What's interesting about this, is the box was torn to shreds and had a big gash in the side.

My packing trick for out smarting the trucking company was to buy 1/2" thick 4 x 8 sheets of EPS siding insulation foam. Then I lined the box with it. 3 layers on the ends, 2 layers down the edge, and one layer on face. The foam was really dense and almost fork lift proof. This was in addition to 2 layers of bubble wrap.
