Update 13-Nov-2012: This group buy is now closed. Order is in and money being paid. Can't wait to get the new boards!!! Stay tuned as I imagine once there is more exposure to these boards there may be more interest in another group buy again at a later date.
Please note the Kessler group buy is not happening. We are however trying to work out a group buy with several other companies. Oxess, Volkl and Virus. Page 4 is where the details begin to be hashed out regarding the new attempt at a group buy. Thanks everyone for their interest!
Just getting the initial details at this point. The board will be various sizes of Kesslers "Ride" snowboard. The board is discussed in detail in the following thread:
Here's the link to the manufacturer.Kessler Ski & Snowboards
At this point I'm trying to gauge interest in a group buy. I don't know pricing or details yet but this will be by the same people that brought it last time for $650 including shipping. I'm hoping it will be close to the same price. This board retails for $1300+ in Canada and the US.
I'm in 100% as long as it's not over $700 or so. Who else is interested? At this point I just want to give him a number so he can get back to us with some firm details.
Here is the e-mail from the group buy guys... They are based in Quebec and I'm assuming the items would ship from Quebec to the US and Canada.
I asked Veronique to pass your request on to me. I am responsible for our Kessler account and we have just begun planning with them for the winter season. Inventory at Kessler is always limited as these are very special pieces that are imported.
I would love to get you guys set up with the Ride board if possible but it would help to know how many you would be looking for as I am not sure we will launch this on the site. For example, if we can only get our hands on 5, and you want 5, then we will just do it that way.
I am waiting on pricing and availability.
