Wakekiteing vs. Wakeboarding. What are the pros and cons of wakekiteing to wakeboarding.

You don't need to pay for gas when you use a kite. But you need wind. And a kite...

I think he's talking about wake-kiting behind a boat as opposed to kite boarding. There's a guy that has a couple wake-kites on Millerton and it looks fun. I talked to him a bit and he said the only problem is the wind has to be just right. He definitely catches a lot of air and the landings look soft. I don't know how long it would take before it got old though...

i watched a promo ad for wakekiting there is a technique you have to master to get air and steer kite. you also have to release kite if you fall so it could be time consuming at first, but it looks fun.

Whoops, my bad. Dunno about the wakekiting thing. Looks a bit strange. Of course lots of people probably say that about kiting. LOL.
