dude it is a total pain to find a store that sells boots at a reasonable price over here.
i saw a pair of 32 Prions retailing for $630 yesterday, what a rip off. The Aussie dollar is close to all time highs against the US, i mean is like $1US=$0.95AU, but shops here in Australia still sell snowboard equipment at least double the RRP in the USA.
Stores here have gone as far as to charge you a $50 boot fitting fee, which is only refundable if you buy the boots. You just can't charge so much!
