Oh perfect! Well, that makes life a lot cheaper then!
I have read a bit about valves freezing etc, any truth to that?
Do you think a 9.5 will have a decent range in powder? Anything you do differently set-up wise?
We kite every windy day all winter, and never ever any problem with the valves on the Best kites
They get harder, but never had any problem with them. 9,5 is a great allround kite and allround size. No the setup is just the same as on the water. I´ve bin instructing on that model on snow for years and as well as using it my self as well and works like a dream! No issues ever!
It´s the nr one snowkite in my mind, and I have quite a lot of days in the mountains. It such a easy going kite, a good low end, and such a big wind range, all are great in the mountains with changing conditions. (The wind change quicker up there) And even if you are way overpowered the kite is still gentle and does what it´s suppose to. So a predictable one perfect for sno! None of the top riders in Norway uses foils, you will that most of the kites you see in the mountains over here are actually the same that people use on water. You can just keep the kite you have and put on your snowboard, I would take the Kahoona over any kite anytime on snow!
Just practice self launch and self landing with it in low wind first - very very easy on that model! Just ask if you don´t know how to do that!
Enjoy the white gold!
