I've had a follow up email on this.
You could order the Starboard bag from your local retailer and he orders it via a Purchase Order from the
North American Importer/distributor.
They order it on a P.O. from Starboard in Thailand.
I do not know the price, but I can find out.
Might take along time for it to get here, but then again if you are willing to pay some shipping it could be expedited as board bags can be folded up and put in a large card board carton.
Let me know if you would like to take this to the next level.
