Can't be that bad going by the amount of sales we keep having from the rest of Europe and even USA and Oz, our international sales have grown massively in the past year.



cheers

Nope it's pretty much most things we sell, kites, boards, mystic, Dynabar etc
Epic Oxygen off to Finland today, harness to Oz yesterday!

I know the shop in Portugal where we go is losing a lot of business to the UK the past few years, it's all to do with the value of the £

Yup you would have thought so but the UK prices are much more competitive these days Cool

The Harness is a Mystic one so am sure it would be available in OZ
About 8 years ago we were losing out so much to sales from Spain/Portugal etc but that ended many moons ago.

All good news, you've ridden the financial storm Wink

I would too have thought that with shipping etc it would be cheaper. However, Oz and Finland are expensive countries to live in! and with the cost of shipping coming down due to a more competetive market (parcel2go springs to mind) then i guess it makes sense!
