That will depend on wether as we leave we negotiate a free trade agreement, which would be in everyones interest, in which case nothing will change.
But if as threatened by the German minister the other day, trade barriers and tariffs start springing up everywhere, then things might get difficult for manufacturers of unbreakable boards on the canary islands and board breaking numpties might have to look locally for their unbreakable rides.

the price of kit will go up if the UK leaves the EU, the price of kit will go up if the UK stays part of the EU. The retail price of kit will always go up.want up to date weather for your local area? - look out of the window now.

As a British national living in Spain, of course it would affect me if the UK votes to leave the EU. It's not clear exactly how, but it's fairly clear that it wouldn't make life any easier. My Uk state pension would be affected for a start. I'm not working in Spain, but the Brits that have businesses here could be much worse off if we leave. You could find a million ex pats being forced back to the UK, unemployed, and dependent on social security. Perhaps not something that those who want to leave have taken into consideration.
Needless to say, I'm strongly in favour of staying in, for lots more reasons than my own personal circumstances. I think it would be an extremely stupid, negative, insular move to leave. So, VOTE TO STAY IN.
