Nothing beats a water sport.
And no water sport beats Kiting.

Just a head's up for you booted, slider/rails, wakestyle, c kite twits - wakeboarders think you're the biggest posers ever.



So, great post! Rollerblade on!

I really did not get it - way to technical to be fun to watch if you are not into skating in the first place. Same as wakestyle - which I call dingleberry - super technical but no fun to watch.

But good to see that they can make a thriving business out of it.

I think as wakeboarders get older they tend to kiteboard more and hit the wakeboard park less, because it's a lot easier on the knees to kite. There's no need to compete on which sport is the best. (Obviously it's kiteboarding). But we can all enjoy skateboarding wakeboarding, whatever you want to do.

I dont like people who start kiting to be cool.

One guy pumped up his kite, launched it, took photos of himself then packed it up.

They should go away and do something else.
