family and friends has anyone tried to snowkite on a wakeboard without the fins?

Hey Lurk

I have never thought to try but I think it would be very difficult to snowkite on a wakeboard unless it is very deep powder conditions. This is due to the rounded outline of a wakeboard versus the more effective concave sidecut and metal edge of a snowboard. I think on hard pack (which is typical SE Michigan conditions) you would slide right down wind with or without fins.

Stick with any snowboard or even easier skis/snowblades
