Hi Fernaldo. Welcome to the forum. Of course you don't need a Hobie to be on the forum but It must be frustrating to not have the facilities to access a AI or TI from within your own country. Best of luck it getting one.

The variation in the price of Hobies from region to region is weird. In Australia, an AI or TI is about 20% more expensive than in the US, which is probably fair, given shipping costs and fluctuations in the exchange rate, but now I'm looking to buy a Hobie Wave and it is 60% more than in the US. Go figure.
Here's a link to a US site, with prices in US dollars: http://www.mariner-sails.com/product_list.asp?id=8510
