Sideways offers an Airport to Airport freight service on selected surfboards. We send boards from Gold Coast to airports Australia wide. Alternatively, you can organise a collection by a freight company of your own choice. Every surfboard is examined thoroughly and ensured it is defect free before leaving the warehouse. Sideways is not liable for any damage that may occur during the freight. We take great precautions to ensure our surfboards are packaged adequately, this includes ensuring that the boards are heavily bubble wrapped and hard cardboard is applied to the rails, tail and nose. If your board is damaged in transit by a 3rd party we will not be held liable. Please ensure you inspect the product upon arrival. We also offer free delivery for any purchase in the Gold Coast Region. For more information please call (07) 5568 7722 or email
