wave kite for Int and Adv riders as well. And don't let the "09 number fool you.
The Kahoona is a "New / Current Model Kite".
The 010 version is not due until March of Next year.
July 22nd 2010: KAHOONA V2's and Core ESP Bars are in-stock.

Press Release Kahoona
Best Kiteboarding is proud to announce the latest addition to its 2009 kite line up.
The new Kahoona is the perfect choice for every rider looking for a super stable, easy-to-rig,
easy-to-fly kite. A reduced aspect-ratio and swept leading edge make the Kahoona Best's
quickest relaunching kite; it is the perfect kite choice for beginners and intermediate riders
looking to maximize their progress every session.
A new Redline Safety System delivers instant safety-depower whenever you push the QR or
drop the bar. With short bridles and only four flying lines, there is nothing to wrap around the kite should you roll it while relaunching. The Redline Safety System allows you to forget about the kite and concentrate on your riding.
Our Quad-Strut swept-tip design helps minimize drag for faster, easier turning helping to improve low wind ability. Responsive handling, great downwind drift, and auto-relaunch combine to help make the Kahoona the most evolved big-wave surf kite we've ever made.
A new VP2 mini-bridle provides the Kahoona with a large wind range and helps maximize stability in all riding conditions, especially when riding unhooked or overpowered. Single point connections for front and rear flying lines simplify your rigging options and make the Kahoona incredibly quick and simple to set-up even for novice riders.
The Kahoona's auto-relaunch, ease of set-up, large wind range and reliable safety will help make you progress faster than you thought was possible. It comes loaded with ease of use and safety features that are out of this world, at a surprisingly down to earth price.
Kahoona: "Progression in every session."
Kahoona Sizes and Wind Range
The Kahoona is available in 4 sizes
9.5m, 11.5m , 13.5m
Stating wind ranging is tricky and thus you'll constantly hear .. " it depends".
The reason is there are soooo many variables. In my personal testing, I would agree
with the above chart. 9.5m ( 15 knots and up ) IF I'm riding my small twin-tip board.
IF I'm riding my 5'11 surfboard, or short wide skimboard, then I'll totally happy in on 12 knots
on the same kite.
Curious what others think about the Kahoona?

Turquiose Golden-Yellow White Burgundy
These are technically the colors, but... " it depends" : ) on what colors are available this week. Maybe only Red and Yellow. Maybe only Burgundy, or Turquiose.
My friend Daryl loves to say " We have EVERY color in-stock except the color you want " : )
Yup.. he's a funny guy.
Trying to match your belt with your shoes is understandable since they're only less than a meter apart. But "your kite! ? " It's going to be over 22 meters away from you. We promise, No one will rag on you for having a kite not matching your shorts.. : )
Best RED LINE Control Bar
The Kahoona has it's own control bar with a different set-up than the other Best Bars.
Two depower lines.
One line (heavier white standard center line ) runs up connecting to the trim strap, and the second line (The Red one ) paralells the white line, but bypasses the the trim strap and ends
at the swival "Y" where the 2 front "flying lines" begin.
