Buying new in England or abroad....?

One thing I have noticed about kitesurfing is that it is bloody expensive; well, for me anyway! I'm looking to move possibly over to a North Toro 12m as it seems a good starter/intermediate kite, rather than my 12.2 Black Tip, which apparently is NOT for beginners like me! All the reviews I have read about the Toro are great but i can't seem to find it anywhere in England. Where can I look?
Are there any benefits of buying a kite abroad with regard to them being cheaper than in England and is the North Toro a decent kite and easier to use than my Black Tip?

I heard that a lot of people in England buy abroad since it is cheaper. But you can always have more hassle with warranty, etc. if you buy abroad.
