Check out this video from 1994 featuring Jonathan McDonald, one of the best kneeboarders ever.

That is ridiculous! Wow!
Those flips were sick!
I cant believe I'm going to say this, but when I grow up I want to kneeboard like J McD!!

I still own that spoon shaped obrien board and dig it out once a year or so. It flips like mad!
My dad took all my old skiing/kneeboarding/skurfing/barefooting video footage from vhs and burnt it to dvd for me for christmas! It was a great to go through all that old footage and see what we used to do on that old equipment. I found some videos of me trying toeside frontrolls on my hyperlite (the original orange and purple one from around '90ish) behind an outboard with no tower/pole/ballast! What a great christmas present.

OK, was it just me or did anyone else feel like they were watching the unseen Vanilla Ice video from the water?

In all seriousness, that was some pretty sick kneeboarding, the quint-flip?? Are you kidding me?? My favorite was the blonde in that retna piercing pink PFD.

That made my day.

Some of you younger guys can't appreciate that video, but before wakeboarding some of us older riders used to break it down on the kneeboard.

Did you hear McDonald after he won that tournament..."...If I fall I'm gonna give a handshake to my competitor, but if I win I'm gonna talk some junk..." ha ha

That video is sick. Ha, ha. Gave me a good laugh for sure. Just wait till people watch our videos in a few years and laugh at us. Those guys have skills though.

whats up with all that beer spilling out of the cooler?

i have to be honest though, i know some kneeboarders who go huge. how their backs take the punishment i don't know. also i have seen this one guy nicknamed 'speed chicken' go absolutely enormous on a kneeboard during a wakeboarding exhibition event at a collegiate 3 event tournament back in '97 or so.
