If you’re reading this that means you’re probably waiting for your board to be delivered. If that’s the case let us give you some context while you desperately await your boards arrival.

The shortest distance between China and the United States is 11,671 km = 7252 miles. If you travel with an airplane (which on average flies at a speed of 560 mph) from China to the United States, it takes a minimum of 12.95 hours to arrive. Which is about as long as anyone wants to be on an airplane.

Now, what if you take a cruise from China to the United States? It would take about 2-3 weeks. That’s almost 40 times as long as most people want to be on the open ocean. Feel free to ignore this if you are a sailor! ⚓️⛵️ Anyhow this nautical departure is just one phase in the long and arduous journey that your resilient StarkBoard has to clear before it reaches your doorstep.

This blog outlines every step along your boards shipping journey. This is meant to give you a clear idea on when to expect your board to arrive. Take a look here:

United States  

As the video states once the boards clear customs it will take about two days for the container to be delivered from the harbor to our distribution warehouse in Los Angeles, California. From there it will take about 3-5 days for the warehouse to prepare the individual boards for shipment. After that the boards will be picked up from UPS or FedEx and will be shipped to our customers in the United States and Canada. You will be emailed a tracking number and within 2-5 days should receive your board.


The StarkBoards for all you Europeans are currently being transported via train. Once they arrive in Berlin, the same procedure as above applies.

Rest of the World

The boards heading towards Asia/Pacific are shipped directly from our offices in Shenzhen, China.
