kitesurfing. Because I don't consider "boarding" a verb (unless it's related to private school). And cuz it sounds cooler.

IMO you need cross / cross-off for proper surfing with a kite

I heard that kiteboarding is the umbrella term for using a traction kite on various surfaces:

water - kitesurfing
snow - snowkiting
land - landboarding
sand - ?

All of these are kiteboarding. I don't know if I agree with that source, though.
