Signals Euro distribution headquarters They also have a shop in Greece and the Ukraine. Not that you could make it to one of them, but they might be able to help you out and ship you one. You're best bet is likely to just contact the Euro center and see what they might be able to do for ya.

If you really just want DC I would probably shoot for a Tone. The PBJ is very little more than jib capable, and the Ply just isn't worth it.

The Rocker Light is right around the Tone, maybe a bit softer, but it has carbon stringers running the length of the board giving it more stability and snap. Really playful yet capable enough on the rest of the mountain.

This board choosing always been hard for me by the way prices are like this in my country
TONE-304 Euro
PLY-267 Euro

Another thing, why i want DC ply is because i really like Torstein Horgmo, and he generally use PLY also when he did triple backflip in x games.

Little secret. A company will put the riders pro graphic on whatever board he wants at the time. They do that so you think he's riding the board they want to sell to you as his pro model graphic. For x-games and his triple cork he was probably on an MLF with his Ply graphic.

Also, a pro level rider could ride a door and be better than the rest of us. Don't buy cause someone rides it. If that's what we all did then those of us now riding rocker would still be on positive camber.

Its a decent binding, but I like others more. Check out Flux TT30's, Flow M9's, Raiden Zero's, or K2 Uprise
