Greatest Sport Ever Created.

During the second coming of Christ, he won't need to walk on water cause he'll have his kneeboard with retractable fins handy.

I want to be a pro kneeboarder so badly... Seriously. Problem is, whenever I bring it my friends wont let it on the boat = /

If it is busy on the lake, or I'm just sore from wakeboarding sometimes I throw it on and mess around.... just a few runs a year I have gotten kinda good.

I can usually throw down (these are the wakeboard names, i donno the proper term)
backrolls both ways
front rolls
roll-2-revert both ways
1 kinda of 720 (only have done it twice)
switch (backwards) 3's and 5's

got pretty close to a wrapped mobe too

kneeboard is super gay but fun

a buddy of mine kneeboards..... he is a ripper too..... he bought a Centurion Avey to kneeboard behind....

Nick sounds like you & him should ride together sometime.... we keep giving him wakeboard tricks to try... he has even hit sliders

I have only tried it once, when I was 13, and somehow I racked myself in the balls with the tip of it trying to get started.... I've never touched one since.

Those crazy boards make me nervous. I hate being strapped to it.

so my question is for those of you who have made it to inverts on the keeboard as well as wakeboard... which is more difficult?
Old    David Christman (lfrider92)      Join Date: Sep 2008       12-26-2008, 5:15 PM Reply   
luke, i cant do inverts on a knee board. but i would think it would be harder on a knee board. on a wakeboard it feels like you hav emore control because you can use more of your body. thats just how i see it. im no where near good at knee boarding but that show i see it

Kneeboard rolls are 1,000 times easier if you've done a wakeboard one first... and have a good sized wake.

My friend and I just pick it up one day and we both landed rolls first trym they're super easy

really just depends on how hard you make it (with a wakeboard or kneeboard). two completely different techniques and two completely different sports.

i personally find it easier to flip on a kneeboard and i find it easier to spin on a wakeboard

Jeremy, Didn't you make a video last year of you doing a backflip on the kneeboard in the snow.

Dude, that's awesome! Now I have something new to try next time I'm up in the snow.

I'm bringing the kneeboard the next time we ride together. Sorry it won't be the fatty with retractable fins as we just got rid of it. I wanna see the original kneeboarder in action ha ha

I think I'm gonna throw up now.

kneeboard back and front rolls are way easier than wakeboarding, which is why I haven't been able to land a back roll yet on a wakeboard. I think having a compressed body position with less moving parts makes it easier. If you had to hit a target 20 feet away, you'd rather throw a knife at it rather than an axe

I've got a wakeboarding friend and every time we go out on his boat we have to bring the kneeboard for his wife because that's what she knows. I think she got spooked when another girl chipped a tooth trying to wakeboard but if she's stoked and we can still ride that's fine with me.

If anyone has a killer picture of someone killing it on kneeboard. I have a brand new free kneeboard for the photo i choose. Must be high res, and I must get the rights to the photo to use in web media or print.

Happy hunting for photos guys!

Even better, if there is someone in the sacramento area that shreds on a kneeboard and would like a free kneeboard in trade for a photo shoot. hit me up.
