I need a LF Diva 135/Prima 7-9 shipped to Rosario Cp 2000, Argentina. It's a gift for my GF

Evo carries it but quoted me U$D400 to ship, ridiculous since shipping from Miami is U$D150

anyone help please?

We have the board in stock...but not the boots. Could substitute something else. Shipping via Fedex is $310.99. email us at to discuss if interested.

Check here....they might go down on price because the time of the year and they overnighted me some stuff the other day for only $7 (it was U.S. but very very cheap still)

Thanks for everyone posting so far.

I wanted to mention that to my surprise many reputable shops quoted me some really big money for shipping, up to U$D420, that's just not right!
Past week we ordered from a Miami shop and got quoted U$D350 for 2 boards and 3 pair of bindings, the reason I didnt get the Diva there was because they were out of stock. The other boards are on it's way now.
Anyway one board/binding package sent from Miami quoted U$D150 to Argentina via Fedex.

Other shops wich carry the board on stock dont ship international, or just didnt answer the Emails yet, So my message to Shop owners or employees would be that I know you dont send boards out of America everyday but it wouldnt hurt to have this area better covered.

You could try my local boardshop in NJ

I believe he ships out of the country. Ask for Craig and tell him Dave W sent you.

Hi Luciano,
My name is Bill Porter from Performance. I'd responded to the thread...and yes we do ship internationally on lines we are allowed to. We can "combo box" adding boards / boots in one box..we do it all the time.

As for shipping cost to your country...I can tell you we get very agressive rates from Fedex to ship there...but the bottom line is that its one of the most expensive shipping areas in the world. Part of it is because location, part of it is Government restrictions / requirements that adds to the cost. And I'm not going to mention import duties and taxes. (100% I think?) Let me know if you need help in the future. I know alot of customers seem to have items sent to freight forwarding companies out of Miami who can seem to "skirt" some of the import duties...but if we send it, you will have to pay them at the time of arrival. I hope this helps.

This is sometimes cheaper...but they will not let us ship items longer than 49" to your country. Again, as for the shipping a reputable dealer, we need to use reputable shipping companies. We've tried to use smaller brokers, but when there are problems....their resolution structure is really poor, and the end result is you don't get what you ordered timely, you are bent out of shape because it takes longer to resolve it, and ultimately....trying to save a few bucks on shipping usually causes MAJOR headaches if there are any problems with the shipment. Trust me, I've been there. And as much as I would love to ship boards cheaper to everyone...getting them safely, quickly is key. Its amazing how "un-reputable" a shop becomes when a customer doesn't get something timely...or when they have problems..they aren't resolved quickly. Just my two cents.

Bill, thanks a lot, that was a pretty good post, import duties and taxes are around %50 here, but I'd always payed them when I got the package in my frontdoor, so they charged apart from the shipping cost. It has been that way on all my previous purchases. What you offer is to send with import taxes and duties covered?

I have bought from your shop a few times, I know you are serious people and that's why is one of the first places I check before any purchase, I really appreciate you stand up and give your explanation.

We don't charge they ALWAYS are changing depending on what your country charges from items made in other countries. There are simply too many variables out there. A good example..had a customer from Mexico order a pair of Billabong Board shorts...because Mexico makes a bunch of apparel and China is a major competitor..they wanted to charge my customer 300% import duties. He returned them and just took his losses.

Let me know if I can help in the future....we are very good at fitting multiple boards in boxes etc....its an art....but definately cuts shipping costs to your country if you can divide it with other riders. Hope you get your gear ok....let me know if I can help.
