I've just had a quick look in Air Born Kites' (Brighton) latest catalogue.
They sell 3 wheel mountain boards for 249 and 4 wheel versions for between
369 and 415, depending on the size.

You can contact them at:

Web              http://www.airbornkites.co.uk
TEL.             01273 676740 + answerphone
FAX.             01273 676752

BTW, I have no connection with Air Born Kites except that it's one of my
local shops.

Regards
James

Hope that's sorted.

Well,

1) if you are skint, how are you going be able to meet the costs of
   running a car?  Expensive business y'know: tax, mot, insurance,
   petrol, service and repair...  If I did not own a car, I'd be rich
   (relatively speaking) and I'd be able to afford lots of nice new
   kites. ;->

2) From what you say, it will be cheaper getting it from Oz.  However,
   be aware of the rules about VAT and duty.  If your aunt gets caught
   bringing it over in person, she'll have to pay a lot of money at
   customs.  If it is shipped by any other method, customs will slap a
   great big charge on it.

3) Continuing in the same vein, I was in Route 1 (which used to be Air
   Circus) the other day and they had a really rather nice four
   wheeler mountain board (or similar).  The construction was
   elegantly simple and the deck looked big and stable.  I looked at
   the price tag and it said 185 5 or something like that (price in UK
   pounds), but the shop assistants were both busy, so I did not get
   the chance to ask them whether that really was 1885 quid or whether
   it was all a bit of a mis-print.  In any case, looking at the
   construction, I reckon I could knock one up for about a hundred
   quid assuming I could lay my hands on the materials and borrow the
   tools I would need for the job.  Might have to be worth
   investigating.
