Well typically if you have to ask... it is probably not for real.
Simple way to find out though, contact any brands they list and find out if they are an authorized reseller.
I certainly would not be sending my hard earned cash to them.

fake, they stole jupiter kiteboarding's layout, u usually can easily tell if a site is fake if they take western union,....and the prices are too good to be true

honestly best time to buy is in a month or two with all the closeout 2013's

They accept Western Union as payment, but not Visa.

Yes, it is a scam, but well done.
