I just got told by the Australian importer that the 2014 US list price for Solution carbon is USD$1499

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:


They tried to charge me @ this rate for my current shipment that was delivered this month without informing me of the massive price hike!
This is for the GST boards.

Making it hard to understand why you would ride one.

Any input from Nidecker?

If that is true that's asinine.

Looks like they figured out that 1st world production cost are more expensive than 3rd world.
Or they are just gouging us!
For that price you would expect a light full carbon lay up top and bottom.
This is a real shame as the boards look a lot better.
Cheers

Doesn't most equipment cost more in Australia and NZ? Doubt it's gouging, I think it has more to do with taxes and tariffs, not to mention shipping across some big body of water the I forget the name of ;).
