Anyways, we either pay that in Canada or get hit by duty and tax from USA.
Actually due to Burtons retailer agreements we can't buy Burton products from the states. But if we could we'd pay no duty (NAFTA) and only local taxes. What you might be talking about are brokerage fees, and that's something that drives me up the wall...
I've got a few good sources in Canada that offer prices similar to or as low as the lowest US prices once they all start marking down in the spring.
Paid $275 CDN for my C60 ESTs back in the day!
