Shipping might be steep but I was just shipped 63lbs of snowboards from L.A. to Breck and it was only 114 bucks. NS uses shopatron I think and that shipping rate isn't right I'd dispute that shit cause it shouldn't have been more than say 30 bucks for 1 board unless you had it over nighted.
Utah to denver. just checked the website and it even says free shipping with orders over $75. don't know if it had something to do with NS sending them the order or what cuz i originally ordered it off the NS website and then the other store sends me a email about how they got my order from NS and after that i checked my checking account and they charged about $80.
Frisco to Moscow (I mean capital of Russia) was $82 for me. 152 Arbor Push by USPS Express Mail with insurance.
But what really sucks is that buying shit from local shops is twice as expensive.
I hear you. Burton products are the biggest rip off in NZ, the mark up on them is about 400 a board compared to what they are paying for them in the shops in the US. Aussie is even worse for snow gear, so much mark up. I got gloves from sierra snowboards a few years ago, freight was more than the gloves, but still worked out 20 cheaper than I could get them in NZ.
