shipping kayaks

Having live out east most of my life I have used Forward previously to ship kayaks. Now that I live in west TX there is no forward air hub nearby.

Any suggestions?

thanks in advance

my surfer beau has his surf boards shipped by Yellow Frieght, years ago. That was the cheapest.

Use the hound...

Greyhound will ship a play boat for really cheap these days comparatively. I sent one from California to New York for $62 last year. Just go down to your local hub or depot and talk to them, they can fill you in. Sports Express ( is really convenient but getting more expensive these days.

If all else fails, check out FedEx GROUND or UPS. A couple years back I shipped a Jackson SuperFun via FedEx, as Forward Air was not available. It's expensive, but could be cheaper than SportsExpress. Just take it to the local FedEx Kinkos or UPS place. Last time I was at a UPS shipping place in a strip mall they had a sign saying: No item too large to ship.
