what do you mean burton stuff doesn't ship to canada? last time i checked, burton was sold at almost every board shop.

wax is free with coupon at sporting life website.

shops:
sporting life (overpriced)
boardzone (good if sales are around)
corbetts in oakville
hustler snowboards in oakville
surf paradise in mississauga

umm i mean they do sell burton stuff here.. but supposidly burton stuff from the US sites will not ship over here if they are still in season.. unless they are out of season and have something new to replace it... (im bad with wording things.. so here is an example) 2009 burton board 1 will not ship unless a 2010 burton board 1 is created... supposidly cuz US websites signed with burton so that we cant get discounts cuz US sites are much cheaper =(

I'm from Markham, I have been going to The Sign for years... top notch customer service, great staff...

Sporting Life is trash for ski/snowboard tuning. i wouldn't use their service even if it was free.
