After watching a slew of Kiteboarding videos I'm a little curious why the world treats it as a different sport than wakeboarding. If cableboarding and boatboarding are still "wakeboarding" when both use different methods to pull the rider->why is a kite so different? Why isn't it called wakeboarding as well?
Just curious if there's a real reason or if that's just the way the world evolved.
What are your thoughts?
