I am still a little perplexed on your style.
If there is a reasonably solid market for kite gear in your area you can always consider buying and reselling instead of demoing boards.

Why are you not going strapless? I mean small waves, no freestyle, and you prone surf?
I am definetly a proponent of shorter wider strapped boards while kiting. With straps, these boards can do every condition/wave from the big stuff on the outside, to the secondarys, to the mush .5m that makes it's way into the tide pool, to a (stupidly dangerous) trick on the way out of the tide pool, to boosting or rolls off the whitewater, to rolls off of a near breaking face, to taking another secondary back in if another kiter in a wave blocks your way out, to screaming upwind for to get away from the crowd coming down the line.
I get the impression you want to focus on only one aspect of the kitesurfing experience. If that is the case, I'd say go strapless.
But if you stick with straps, go wider with the board and try to use all the things the ocean throws you.
