board. you're kite will work. maybe it's not a "wakestyle" kite but it'll be fine. just set it to slower turning.

upgrade to a proper wakestyle board. more at www.k i t e s c o o p.com with out the spaces.

definitely board, it makes far more difference than the kite.

haze is more of an allround board, look for a stiffer board with a squarer outline, and if you are looking for a boots board you will want more rocker as well

I reckon the LF and Cab wakestyle boards are the best
