What we like:
The feedback from every rider who has experienced the Kahoona is that this kite rides like a dream. The Kahoona has consistent relaunch because of the swept wing tip too. We have been putting the Kahoona through its paces for several years in the REAL Lesson Center and it stands up to the test again and again. It’s worth adding too that the low end power (bottom of the kite’s wind range) is superb.
The V5 Kahoona is really sensitive to back line tension, so if you oversheet this kite it can back stall. The wing tip deflectors are stiff which means that if you crash and roll the kite, the bridle can get caught and make the kite hard to relaunch. The Kahoona sometimes feels a little sluggish through the wind window, especially in the bigger sizes. Riders looking for more of a “performance” kite should take a look at the 2013 Best TS Kite
Why you want the 2013 Best Kahoona:
The Kahoona has a phenomenal reputation and appeals to a lot of the kiteboaridng market. Beginner, intermediate, freerider, cruiser, lawn-mower, weekend-warrior – you get the idea!
