Whoa short bus alert! That site is in NZ, so the board is listed in NZD. It's just over $800 USD.

Annnnnnnnnd Welcome to the New Zealand snow scene! Bend over and have a nice day.

These kind of prices for a snow board are pretty average. Our prices are hiked up to the maximum and its clear that alot of people are getting "there cut" at a premium level, especially in retail shops.

Case in point: I buy a 2011 NS SLR (retails $500USD)* through the rep for $725NZD which is about the right conversion...

I go look at a Burton Custom (retail $490USD according to dogfunk) which would equal roughly $700NZD. But in the stores (im talking all stores, chain and local/core) you'll not get much change out of $1100NZD.

We get screwed over here big time. The weird thing is...people (not fucken me though) are willing to pay this kind of money...


*On the price of the NS board, yes, I know that the rep has less overheads and it was an over order from what he was going to order anyway and blah blah blah. I was damned lucky to get hold of the NS rep here in NZ. I was originally going to deal through the Australian rep, who wanted to charge me $1200NZD for a board less freight (I still haven't quite completed what my reply to him yet...)

My thoughts = Do not shell out for this board dude.

Go buy something like a High Society or a Smokin' off of Greg @ BWMSnow.co.nz , you'll save yourself $400 - $500 and be getting a far better board for your money, off of someone who is passionate about snow sports & will be able to accurately recommend a board appropriate to your needs (not some dick in a chain store).

If you want to go the Never Summer route like everyone is suggesting here, you need to talk to Matt Bear (pm me for his details as his website is down at the moment) and see what he has in stock.

For those wondering wtf! is a High Society - High Society is pressed by Never Summer and features their RC technology. Their website is High Society Freeride Company

aaaaaaaaaaaand and article for snow geeks HIGH SOCIETY: Aspen's newest ski company

I'm curious who has ridden this board- either regular or horsepower construction.
