They're expensive for you living in the UK, but if you live and work in Aus they're actually very cheap. Boards are roughly $750AUD in the shops at the moment; that may equate to £484 with today's exchange rate, but in reality that's the equivalent of £250 for people living and earning here. You can take home $650AUD working a 40 hour week washing dishes.
It's the exchange rate that's ripping you off, there's nothing the shops can do about that. Don't hate the player, hate the game etc.
