I have really gotten into kneeboarding. I bought a Hydroslide razorback last summer.

I like the board. I gets pretty good air but seem heavy. Also it fills with water which is really annoying.


Now I am looking to upgrade. What are your recommendations?

I have heard great things about the Pano from HO, its Frankie Panos pro model, and he absolutely kills it on a knee board!

My riding buddy has ridden his Joker for two or three years now and loves it, he has hit himself with the edges and been cut pretty bad, and he replaced the original strap, but aside from that, he has loved it.

If you want a quality board i would recomend either the HO Joker, HO Agent, or O'Brian Rush 5150. I have both the Joker and Agent and they defanatly get you way more air than a crappy rotomold hydroslide. I havnt tryed the Rush 5150 but i hear that is also a really good board. Frankie's Agent has by far the coolest design, so if thats what your going for than you want an agent. in my opinion the Agent is the best board you can buy. all three of these boards have the same pricetag of $299 which isnt bad if you look at how much u would have to spend to get the best wakeboards. As a heads up, The straps on all kneeboards including these are flimsy nylon and no good, if you want a quality strap that will last at least 15 years than you want a CINCH strap, the most comfortable and the highest quality strap u can buy ( no one else makes kneeboard straps that arent the same crappy one already on the board). give Lonnie a call and you can have it custom fit to the length you need. its called the CINCH 'Max' and its $75 plus shipping and tax and its worth every penny. http://cinchkneeboard.com/_wsn/page3.html

If you want to get air,a wakeboard is the way to go.As far as kneeboards H.O. is the way to go.

In all seriousness, I have been seeing some pretty big air on knee boards lately... There are a few guys that ride all the time at OWC that absolutely kill it on knee boards.

Go with the Rush 5150, but I'm biased since I co-developed it with Teddy B. and Chris Johnson. Head over to kneeboardworld.com to gain more info on kneeboards.
