Disadvantages of wave kites

Hey,

can someone tell me the major disadvantages/advantages of a wave kite and/or the difference between a wave and a freeride kite?

So if you ride with your eyes closed, can you tell if you are riding a wave or a freeride kite?

thanks!

Re: Same boom and length on lines for rpm 12 and rpm 9?

I started my kitesurfing-adventure with the same two kites you have mentioned above (12, 9 RPM from 2012).
i used a 20'' bar with 23m lines back then and it worked perfectly fine for both kites.
