Good skates and good prices
It’s easy to understand, if you are selling skateboards in Europe and you directly manufacture there, price may be cheaper. If you are selling skateboards in Europe but you need to manufacture in the USA, prices get higher.
This has two main benefits, the first one is that catalogues will be always updated, so the brand can sell the same products worldwide at the same time.
The second one is that you remove imports and taxes, so you can keep almost the same price worldwide.
