I bought the Kahoona 2014 (V6) last month and tested this weekend. I got the 9.5 meter model. I rode it in around 20 knots, so I had no issues with power. It is a kite aimed towards beginner and intermediate riders, as the guys at Best market it. And this is what I wanted. A kite easy to control, with good depower and instant relaunch. I got all that, plus that the Kahoona V6 is easy to boost and jumps are floaty and smooth and turning is also smooth. The bar pressure is a bit high, just enough to always feel the kite. It is a kite easy to move in the window and predictable. I boosted some airs, but haven't ridden unhooked so far. I can put it like this: with the Kahona you just go on the water and start riding and have fun.
