Avalanche FLP AFT - $1132
Avalanche FLP - $1030
Avalanche FR Freeride - $771
Ultimate Freecarve - $1234

Now those prices include tax, and I'm not sure how it works with the VAT being 15% or so, and my local taxes are only 5% so I'm not sure if I could apply for a rebate?

At the moment the FLP AFT is sitting $200 lower than the Kessler Ride MSRP. I was really hoping for much lower than that as the price of admission...

Lets see what the other manufacturers say, or maybe can get a better deal?

about VAT: i live off EU and US and i don't have to pay any VAT. That's true for cellphones, and i believe for a boards too. I believe VAT is a bit highr, like 18%.

If you can post prices in euro? Just for comparsion.
I suggest prices in list doesn't include shipping, right? so we split Eu160 for all the boards, right? then we gotta count how many of us, like to buy it. It makes difference 4 or 20 people.

Germany have 19% VAT, so you can get this off buying stuff in Germany for export. That's 98% true =)
On import every country have it's own taxes. I don't know about US but i need to pay only if value exceed 1000Euro. It's complicated thing about US. US residents will help.
