That’s good to hear.
Maybe I was a bit overly appalled by my shipping costs which might have been more reasonable than I thought.
And I do like my Gong mPro curve. So much that I now have a large curve wing as well (haven’t had any time on it yet).
Thank you.
John

Shipping and taxes are a big expense. Im in same situation when I buy from USA. The govt charges us 25% sales tax on price of item + shipping+ customs fee. Ive complained to tax authority that they are charging sales tax on a shipping service thats not in their tax jurisdiction. You can imagine that that worked....

i probably placed 15 different orders over the summer with gong, going to usa, i also thought the shipping was a bit out of line, a couple times my order would cancel, and I would re-order it,,,and get a fairly different shipping amount. i would have liked to try their stuff but the whole order process was more than i could handle. also tried paying once or twice but cc got denied,,, you have to pay in euroes i found out later. kinda glad,,, i found nice stuff closer to home and my dollars went to a good old local company ( GO SLINGSHOT!)

a local friend bought their stuff and loves it. looks nice too. i briefly rode the classic version i think,, very nice and smooth during my short demo, can't go wrong,,, couldn't make it work on the pro version but it was totally me, not the wing.

i ordered a drysuit from the UK,,, 30$ shipping,, arrived in 4 days via ups i think! no duties. would love to give gong a try when shipping gets sorted out. i don't think there is much savings if you are ordering from usa, in my opinion.
