Very happy that you liked it.

This is a raw footage of 2 mins ride and you know (do not kill me :wink: ) I am going to fit straps to my plate board to master jumping and flying:

If the europeans can import the Clouds from BRM, you should be able to import one of them by contacting the website owner.
More over, you can take around 20% off the public prices because you don't pay the VAT (GST) if you are not a european resident. Then import taxes might be applied when entering the US.

I contacted Moses to see how much it would cost to get one shipped to the US (Virginia). They quoted me about $2200 including the shipping.

Wow - thats a bargain, and low priced :thumb:

Compared to other brands and countries where some are 20-40% more expensive :naughty:

I don't know if I could ever call a $2000+ board a bargain :lol:

The MHL Lift boards are $1800. Not sure about shipping cost, but there is a shop a few hours drive away that sells them, so I could just go pick it up next time I've driving by that area. Local shop might be getting one as well.

I don't think I've heard from anyone who has tried both the Moses and the MHL.

Aaah, sorry Dave, I thought you meant the price was for constellation foil AND board :-?
THEN it would be a bargain, low cost.

The price is pretty normal for a foil only, not high nor a bargain.

On the other hand, one can compare to windsurf waveboards, they cost $2500 board only :o

A kiterace board cost the same, or more too.

Dang it is pricey :roll:

Sorry, the way I wrote that was confusing.

Total for the whole setup with board, foil rig, footstraps and shipping is $2200.

I meant to say "OVER $2000" ($2000+) for a complete board seems like an astronomical amount, even if it is a foil board. I really want one, but just struggling with the idea of spending that much
