a good wakestyle kiteboard has a certain flex while a wakeboard is rock-solid.
so a kiteboard has a lighter rockerline in light winds which will increase with power ...
but still - for a good kiteboard's price, you get two wakes
to the binding / wake thingie:
well - a no-kite-wake usually has a two fin setup and rides much looser than many kiteboards.
you should know how to edge the board.
and bindings are for experienced riders, that's true - alone getting in and out requres a feeling for kite and wind.
you shouldnt drop your high performance kite in low winds ... and so on ...
