This is a commercial post. Then again, I think it is a good way to get safer, new gear in use and to retire some of the older designs out there. This is the second year ASM has done this and I am surprised that apparently no one emulated the concept in the past year. It is unlikely you'll get anything close to $250. for some of the old kites out there so this presents some good options.
Anyway, it's "Trade In Your Trash" time again this weekend in Miami. How about some other outfits doing something like this? It is the brainchild of Kent with Cabrinha and ASM and here's his copy on the event ...
"Yup, it's that time of year again!!! Grab your old kites, harnesses, wetsuits, and boards and bring them to Adventure Sports Miami for our 2nd annual TRADE IN YOUR TRASH sale.
We have super specials on a variety of new and used equipment. Take a look at the Revolver and Contra deal. Any size of $1099, but wait!!! Trade in your old Naish AR5's (or any obsolete Best Kite) on 2 Revolvers or Contras and deduct an additional $250 each for your worthless trade in's. Yep, that's right you only have to fork out $749 a piece plus tax for killer kites. All sizes are in stock now so all you have to do is pick your color.
Got a nasty old wetsuit buried in the back of your car that even the grim reaper wouldn't wear? No problem, bring it on in (in a plastic bag) and we will give you $35 off on a sale priced new NPX wetsuit!
Got an old skinny board that can't get you upwind? Toss it in the car and trade it in. ASI Miami will give you $85 for it against a new sale priced Cabrinha board of your choice!
Harness getting dry rot? No problem. We have killer new harness from Dakine, Cabrinha, and Neilpryde. Trade that sucker in on a new one and we'll give you $20 bucks for it.
We also have great deals on used and prototype kites (not eligible for trade in's).
See our selection of board shorts, t-shirts, sunglasses and more. We also have a variety of Naish STAND UP PADDLE BOARDS ready too go. Trade us your old dented and sun fried surf board and we will give you another $50 off any sale priced SUP or surf board in stock.
