I’m looking to add the Hellfire to my board collection for an upcoming trip to Indo. I was in Hawaii in January and am really regretting not picking on up while I was there.
I’m an Aussie living and working in China (no regular surfing – just planned trips a few times a year) and was arranging for a mate to pick up a board in Australia for me. That is until I realised the price difference! The Hellfire (Future Shapes) retails for $920 in Australia and ~$685 in the USA. That is 34% cheaper not taking into account the currently stronger AUD. I realise international commerce is a wholly complicated issue with taxes, import duties etc… so I’m not going to try and change the world with this post.
I will however talk with my wallet and explore options of purchasing the board outside of Australia.
I do travel around Asia a bit ad was wondering if you sell boards out of your factory in Thailand? Bangkok?
