Amtrack express is very cheap, if someone can pick it up in Portland.
And you have to drop it off, at an Amtrck shipping depot in Florida
I shipped a board and two sails in seperate boxes, from Boston to Portland Oregon for $70 in June.

Amtrack does a good job , and much cheaper than fedex, or ups. Check some air freight companies they can be cheap also. Remember its not door to door, you have to drop off and they have to pick up. Make sure you box it well, around nose and tail, and double box if you can. Try going to a local bike shop, they should have some good boxes you can link together to make a board box.

GOOD LUCK
