Great sentiment, if you can actually get what you want from your local shop.Or should you buy something lesser or that you don't really want just so they stay in business?If my local shop has what I want I will buy from them even if it is more costly but I am not going to buy just because they are local.

My local shops have started their sale mid-march at 30% which beats anything the US online stores has.
Even sportmart had the K2 Raygun at $235 at one point.

Mine already at 30, 40% and 50% for 2010's! Still... Selection is limited and don't carry all brands. Ones I want are 20% off while I just found same board i'm looking for today at 50% off at US online. So I snagged it.

Don't understand why US shops go as far as 50% while it's hard to get anything good at Canada online stores above 20%!!!!

Oh well... Cheers

Thumbs down thinkempire

I was looking for a longboard for off season on thinkempire. there was this one model that i really liked and the price was really good. so i decided to buy it the next day when i borrow my mom's credit card. turns out the price went up 40 bucks overnight. so i just bought a longboard at alternative113. pretty easy transaction there.

Which board was 50% off and which site did you get it from?

It was s 2011 K2 www 156 wide which I got for $189 (50% off). Can't remember the site, but it was a small shop in the mid west. I found it through "bing" by mistake while I switched off google !!! Last one and they were sold out of almost everything else.

Oh, and it cost me $10 shipping (2 day UPS) to a border cross point in US 30 minutes away. I drive over, pick it up and drive back. No duties or customs. Just pay taxes and it's all good!

Thumbs up

Thanks for throwing this together, definitly helped with my end of the season shopping spree (cosuldn't help myself). Picked up some burton CO2s at a great price from the source.

Another Canadian friendly US site to tack on to the list would be REI.com, bit of a steep shipping cost, but when you find a $600 board at 30% off it's worth it

edit: Aparently REI (and everyone else) advertise that they ship to Canada but in fact have vendor deals with most manufactures that they can't sell their goods outside the US border. What a load of BS

That sweet deal I was talking about was on an Arbor A-Frame, which seems to retail at just over 600 USD. That same board here in Canada retails for 750 CDN, even though our dollar is stronger. In europe it's worse, the A-frames I've seen on-line or in the shops here in France go for 750 EURO! That's over $1000!

So long story short, after much searching and phonecalls, found a board shop in Toronto that's selling the A-Frame for %40 off the retail price, and I have one on lay-away untill I get home for a visit in June. Damn thing's still costing me more than it would on REI with the %30 discount AND shipping.

Comming to the realisation that even snowboard companies are cut-throat and greedy when it comes to thier pricing just sucks. Where's the love?

(US) Sierrasnowboard.com is also Canadian friendly.

WARNING: BACKCOUNTRY/SIERRA BOTH USE UPS FOR INT'L SHIPPING. UPS = RIDICULOUS BROKERAGE FEES

UPS is the worst for Brokerage fees. Always be sure the shipper is USPS if your from Canada.

Will update this over the next while, if anyone has any suggestions let me know!
Going through the links people suggested as well.

Also, the reason backcountry etc. is fine for Canada is they add the charges to your order. It can be ok if you make a big order. At least there are no surprises at the door.
