What would happen if you broke something at the beach? Small items you can always keep spares and shipping doesn't take long anyway.
If that's what you want to do, but online and not support your local shop that's fine, everyone loves a bargin and to get something cheap. But if everyone had you attitude and only wanted to shop online our local shop's would become a thing of the past, you wouldn't be able to check out the new kit in the shop or try it out before you buy. You would also not be able to call in to get advice or get them to show how your new rig is meant to be rigged. Also what would happen if your new board had a warranty issue, where would you go to get the warranty issue sorted out.

Windsurfing shop's as mentioned are most peoples first stop when they are starting windsurfing and it is vital that the are around to help attract new people to the sport.

That is why in this world wide recession we should be supporting our local shops with our buisness and not spend that money elsewhere.
