Semi off-topic… anyone in the UK got experience of buying from the US/EU/CA in terms of duties and taxes?

It really depends on the company and what you are ordering, I've got a few bits from carpet before brexit and a few bits from shops and people in france after brexit without import tax but then i got another carpet board from the states and payed £60 in imports

How long do you guys skate a board for? I moved here last month and the boards I shipped from the states are all MIA so I'm forced to buy a Christmas complete... Looking like almost $300 (USD). Crazy.

I try to skate 3+ months with a board coz of the money. You could look for decks on sale but to make sure that the decks are from this year (just look the brands annual drops to see the model). I just bought scumco board from this spring collection that was on sale for 50 euro. Jart and cruzade are also 50 euro but i think it is better if you find bbs decks (dlx brands, polar, passport, the killing floor...) coz they last longer, or eventually r7 dwindle decks on sale.

I ended up just buying a Mob (?) complete, it was a German brand. No clue about the brand itself but I didn't want to spend a lot when my other boards are on the way. It doesn't feel too bad though, just heavy.

I think Mob complete is a good deal for 100 euro. Never tried them but i read the decks are with rasin epoxy glue, the trucks are polster, another german brand that have the same geometry like thunder, and the wheels are probably cheap shit. I am interested to hear your feedback on the trucks though. the complete is with the standard trucks that are a bit heavier (they also have lights versions), but what about the metal, the grinding, the turning, the durability?

They are literally off branded thunders. A friend of mine had some at some point and they felt fine. You’ll be alright  ;)

Respect. As someone from Canada I can honestly say I have wasted hours of my life on that thread. I think I like seeing other people spend money on things I want at a lower price. America has some fucked up deals.

I might be wrong but from my very limited understanding of economics and consumer markets, isn’t it because the domestic market in America is fantastically large? Most of my mates who travelled to the US always mention how cheap shoes and clothes are there compared to Europe as well.

EU puts an import tax on companies that are based outside of EU, usually around 30% give or take.

So even if a Polar board is made in the same factory as a Quasi, it will still be about 10€+ cheaper because the company is registered in Europe.
You know I thought these forums were a for skating not discussing fetishes

What are your sources on that ? The import tax for sport goods in the EU is 2,7% no matter where the company is registered

Hey I had to check it. It really depends what Tarif number you or the customs agent uses to import he goods. The one has 25% penalty for US goods + the 2,7% and the one just the 2,7%. And there are some loopholes that can be used.

They have some decks from this spring that ar eon sale right now. Here you can find two models of David Abair 8.25 and one team deck 8.125 https://www.sprouters.de/?s=scumco&post_type=product
and here there are two other models of Kyle Nicholson (i got this and the dimensions are 8.06/31/14, not like the mentioned in the site 8/31.875) and Downey 8 and 8.25 (which i saw in other site mentioning the dimensions as 8.25/31.75/14.5) https://www.titus-shop.com/en/search?sSearch=scumco They are ps stix and I am very content with the deck after three sessions now. It is definitely a softer and more flexible feel than my other polar board. May be it wont last as long as the polar but it is a pleasure to sk8 it. Go buy now! :D

Thanks for recommending freedom, they have a very good selection. Free shipping takes a little bit more than the major euroshops (Titus, Skatedeluxe) but I prefer to support a core shop.
