Drainage holes in KOALA wingtips
It has come to our attention that not everyone knows about the drainage holes in the KOALA's wingtips. New kites may be delivered with these drainage holes closed, but it's important to check and make sure they are open before using your kite on water.
We have just updated the manual to add the following text:
The KOALA has narrow drainage channels along the trailing edge and a drainage hole in each wingtip to evacuate water. Velcro closures allow the holes to be closed and sealed for land kiting but they should be left open when using your kite on water.
Before using your KOALA on water for the first time, check that these two drainage holes are open.
