level: Sport/Performance Length (in.): 69 Price range: $343-$470
Test notes: A 220-lb. tester found the Kahuna Carv to be the best ski tested for the big guy in mind who is still looking for performance in a slalom ski. Holds its angle very well out of the turn for a big ski.
Sport: Its wide body and stability allow the larger-framed beginner to enjoy a smooth and forgiving ride.
Performance: The Kahuna Carv is perfect for the big skier who is looking for high-performance characteristics in a wider ski. It has good transitioning qualities from the leaning edge to turning edge.
