The Kahoona is a better beginner kite.

+1 for Kahoona.

Also, make sure you're buying the sizes of kite and board that will allow you to progress. This depends a lot on your weight and where you'll be riding. If you are 200+ lbs and live in a light wind area, the 9.5 meter Kahoona would be too small and you'd want a larger board. It's hard to learn and progress if you're always underpowered.

The winds are vary a lot. I am 67kg and the board would be about 140 x 42

The reason i am considering airush, is because it is a local dealer and all of my friends use airush.

Would it be a bad decision to go for varial x?

If you prefer Airush IMO the Lithium is better for a beginner

I agree with pmaggie. If you go Airush go Lithium. Its a better kite than the Kahoona too. VarialX is for intermediate to advanced.
