Pity they're a grand cheaper in the states. Single import of one would soak up that cost saving. Anyone got a container coming back?
Unlike here in Aus, ALL advertised US pricing does not include state VAT, which can be as high as 12%. Add some freight (bloody long way) and you will find that the pricing is pretty close.
I didn't think of that actually so it makes sence.
I'll still probably buy one... July you say for availability?
Some arrive in June if all goes to plan. Hobie tried to delay the release until all the ducks were in line, but leakage pushed the announcement fwd. As you can appreciate, new features necessitate new tooling, production and testing.
