good rule!

I used to really enjoy knee boarding it's just that my knees cannot take being compressed like that for any length of time.

Mine can't handle it for long either CR. Fun for a short run, once a season.

FYI- just pulled the trigger. Gander has them on sale for $200 with free site to store or $20 to your house. They are normally $250. (edit i just found the the $200 one doesnt come with a rope...but i have a rope and a rope aint $50 anyway)

if your interested use the below link- If you look for it under "Watersports" then "knee boards" it comes up as 250. If you search on their site the 199 one comes up along with the $250 one.....go figure


250 Seemed like a bit much for that thing and at 200 ill take it. It will be a welcome reprieve from the tube and will last certainly last longer.

Like the rule about tube time vs ski/wakeboard time. Will have to keep that in mind when i have kids.

When we were kids, we had a piece of plywood shaped a bit like that, that we would ride on standing up. It was tied to the boat and front of the board and had ski handle and short rope tied to the hole in the front to hang on to. I remember it being great fun.

Wonder if that would work in this?? My knees wont let me ride a kneeboard anymore. The g-kids would love it.

I have a great Joker kneeboard just collecting dust now.
