    Do you control the kite or is it boat speed or what?

    That looks really fun. And YEA you are going to get bashed about the power lines

    It's basically based upon the concept of Kiteboarding except you pull the kite behind the boat. It doesn't offer any positive lift like a parasail but when you jump, it gives a 0 gravity effect to your wakeboarding. Let me see if I can find a picture to post ...



    Ironically, the only pic I have is with powerlines in the background ... I can see the replies now.

    What is a wakekite? I don't think I have ever seen one.

    Finally mastering the Wakekite

    Despite the controversy, I purchased the wakekite about a month ago. After about 5 outings - It wasn't until last weekend when I was truly able to get some SERIOUS air, and transition from "board curled behind" to some "raleys". Which I can't land sucessfully on a board alone.

    The rig is a bit pricey, (I got mine for $1300) - but after really taking the time to learn it - it's ALOT of fun and captures many onlookers at the lake. You can catch some monster air and land relatively easy.

    Anyone else messing with this thing?
