I bought from them before... I believe USPS/Canada Post charges are based on weight. I'm in Ontario and my package was shipped as 17lbs, and cost just over $300 CAD. I paid more in taxes (HST I think it was about $40) than duties (duty was only $15). Since Alberta doesn't have HST, I believe you only get taxed the 5% GST.

Quit bitching about shipping costs and buy local.... If you shop online for things you can buy at a local shop then I have no sympathy for your additional costs. It is what it is at this point if you've already ordered it then I don't see why you're crying.. Deal with it when it shows up and be prepared to get your wallet out worst case.

I guess it was just a good place to start and ask if they can do any deals on shipping. They have given me other discounts not listed on their site.

I think you are a little insecure if you are taking my comment as offensive, especially when you say my comments are "uncalled for".

Good luck......

I made a retarded joke about the recent shooting, then edited it, because it was horrible. im sorry. Not directed towards you or anything. To torpedo, WHY THE FUCK WOULD I PAY 200 BUCKS MORE FOR A BOARD AND 100 BUCKS MORE FOR A BINDINGS, when they still have to special order it. sorry but, the whole supporting the local shops is dumb, specially when your broke. no i didnt order it yet. i want to make sure its worth it.

well, the whole point of customs taxes is to make it more expensive, or at least the same price as, buying it in Canada. If they didn't do that, everybody would just order from the states and there would be no stores left in Canada.
You have to take into account shipping and customs and then decide if it will indeed be cheaper.
Judging from your other posts asking about boards, I think you should suck it up and buy from a local shop. Then get to know the shop dudes and they will teach you everything you want to know about snowboarding. A local shop that has your back is priceless.

Fuck, torpedo, why so mean? I never meant to bitch about it. I just wanted to know. I am not mad about it. I just dont want to be surprised. Anyways, from reading i would only have to pay duty and tax(5%). Can anyone confirm this?
