If you are looking for new gear, but want to try before you buy, you might want to check this out.

Kite-Line.Com has implemented a demo program for the latest 2007 kitesurfing gear including kites and in the future will be offering demos of boards from all major manufacturers.  The customer can select the appropriate kite model and size for a fee of $199 which includes a 2-week demo.  Kite-Line.Com ships the kite free of charge via FedEX ground.  If the customer decides to purchase the kite then the entire $199 will be refunded back to the customer!  It doesn’t get any better than that.
