independent of the industry and the more independent it is,
the more pure and better I feel about snowboarding.- Craig Kelly

Yeah yeah yeah, spelling nazi It's because I made the post using IE instead of Firefox, which has a built in spell checker that checks anything you type on the fly.

I was just thinking something though to counter act this lack of shipping to Canada. Couldn't you just ship it to someone on the forum who's "close" to where you are in Canada, then have them ship it to you? You would end up paying double in shipping, but it might be worth the savings over the price of the stuff, and then you could get the gear you wanted.

Depends. I'm "close" to Ontario and Quebec, but not the other territories. There's also a post office, FedEx, and UPS drop off location really close to where I work.

Nitro T1 Legacy Freestyle board - I want to find a pretty soft board (currently have a Burton Custom). Is this going to suit me for the days of riding mostly in the park? Looks like a good deal and I know Nitro makes some good boards? Comments/opinions? Thanks.

Nothing really, but I've had it about 5 years and want a 2nd board that is softer. Plus, I really like the twin design boards which my 2003 Custom isn't. Then again, if the Custom is a twin now I would consider buying a 2008, I guess...but I don't think it is.

PS - tried a Ride Society and it wasn't nearly as flexy as I had been told.
