Re: Using a Kiteboard for Wakeboard
- Generally kiteboards do not have enough rocker to get a good "pop"
off the wake.
The lower rocker on a kiteboard makes the board faster, so that you
can ride upwind faster with less power than you'd need on a wakeboard.
You also should be able to jump off the wake much better with a
square tail than you can with a forked tail. I have tried several
kiteboards behind a boat, just not any pickelforks.
