That isn't really helping. Which I/O devices would you expect to use ?

And what is an autosurfer ?

The page for it on aliexpress states that it is no longer available.

The board in the original link that you posted can certainly be made
to work, there is documentation on the newer SoC, it comes down to how
much effort you want to put in. The effort on your part might just be
to order the thing then lend it to a NetBSD developer for a while. It
looks to me as if it would take several weeks to get one though.

Why not get a cubietruck from a European reseller ?
