How to choose this product
A kneeboard is ridden in a kneeling position, either surfing the waves or towed behind a powerboat. Riders often do acrobatic tricks, the knees and shins resting in contoured sockets.
NauticExpo offers boards for everyone from beginners to experienced competitors. From the the most cautious neophyte to the most aggressive daredevil, each rider will find a suitable model.
Kneeboards are generally quite small. This allows the rider to perform extremely acrobatic tricks. They are generally made of carbon/fiberglass composites or of Kevlar®, and have ergonomic knee wells on their upper surface.
Beginner's boards tend to be rounded, while more streamlined and bullet-shaped models offer speed and performance. An elastic strap absorbs impacts after jumps. Kneeboards with swallow-tail sterns facilitate learning to turn smoothly. A special fitting can be used to attach the tow rope directly to the board to absorb the pull of initial acceleration or to perform hands-free tricks.
How to choose
Choice will mainly depend on board shape, which should be to your experience and riding style.
