Update: I bought from Silent Sports and holy shite it seems too good to be true. I just bought 2 days ago so haven't received the board yet.
If it shows up I will be amazed and grateful.

Yep, Silent Sports rocks. I have been buying my gear there for over 20 years. Including my Shinn Monk :jump:

I buy from Silent Sports, never had an issue with the gear at all. I've bought some Shinn's from A-Ok back when they were the USA distributor, I had some issues with them listing the board as complete and then not including pads/straps/fins/handle. They ended up refunding some cash back but I wouldn't have bought the board if it wasn't complete.

Only downside to Silent Sports is the crazy shipping charges, still great deals even after that though.

Hello michaelb1, your board was shipped out today and you should be getting it on Thursday! Thank you very much for shopping with Silent Sports!!!

Thanks also to all the positive comments about shopping with us. Much appreciated !

Slappyson, we try our best to give the lowest rate but we are at the mercy of UPS, FedEx and Purolator. Thanks for shopping with us!

Sorry my friend that's what this stuff goes for. That's only for the ADHD as it's got a quite beefed up construction for riding with boots. We just got a new shipment of the Monks that are awesome and just a bit more affordable. Send us an email if you have questions or want to put a package together

I've owned five Shinn boards and never paid anywhere near that for any of them.
