Still the best LW kite. Colors changed, leave the rest as is.
I see you are flying Turbines, Rally's and have a Kahoona in the mix. Which is more like the Kahoona - the Turbine or the Rally???
Rally and Kahoona are pretty close but following Kahoona features made me want and get the 11m Rally
- Kahoona can backstall easily and you generally ride it sheeted out.
- Kahoona is heavy/heavier
- Kahoona sucks for foiling. It doesn’t drift overly well which is a feature I really need in toeside foil transitions. So does small Turbine which makes it similar to Kahoona in that aspect.
- You can get Kahoona into funny wrap on water if you crash the kite and so does small Turbine. Not a big deal, but Rally is just perfect and doesn’t do that ever
Upwind and jumping-wise Kahoona is great, very similar to Rally.
It has couple of not-so-great features of high aspect wing like less drift, backstalling and wrapping funny when crashed just like small Turbine.
I know couple of people.who love Kahoonas and I think for its price it’s a very good kite.
I’ve got mine, rode it for year and it’s for sale now.
