I also think this is a little snobby, but its JMO. We wakeskate, surf, ski, wakeboard, tube and kneeboard. I want people to have fun doing "something" on the water.

I started my watersports adventures about 50 years ago riding a homemade plywood version of this and thought it was great fun..........

I appologize. Truly was not meant that way. It was meant to be sarcastic. We have done plenty of tubing and kneeboarding and riding various other objects behind the boat too that were never intended to be. I've even rode a kneeboard with a sheet of plastic on the bottom of it held on by sheet metal screws because we wore through the bottom of the board riding behind quads on paved roads. Trust me, I don't care what anyone rides.

Looks fun to me I'd play with one but the price is a bit high for me. I think kneeboarding is still fun seriously
wake to wake. 360's. going backwards.
It's still fun this would be fun too ,looks cool.
I prefer to slalom. But I still do it all . Like what was said before a day out with the family is what
It is all about. I even still pull out a pair of skis and go on two skis just to fool around. That can be fun also. But I am getting old .

I was skiing
Before wake boarding and towers where even around , back when it was cool to jump start
From the beach. Lol.
I still have my pair of trick
Ski's. doh!

Cheers I would play with one it looks fun

Lol. Cheers.

Ha! Classic. I remember when standing in 12" of water on one foot and yelling,"giv'er!" Was considered a 'trick'. And if you did it standing on the corner of the dock... Ohhh man, pick of the litter that night around the fire I tell ya!

Ahh... beach starting......

I also ride double skis from time to time cuz I have fun on them. I bought a pair of wake skis a couple of years ago and they are fun also................ I'm getting old also.

Surfing is getting to be more my speed now

it look like it fits in a standard board rack. that would be a huge plus. when we bring families out with us, we carry a kneeboard for the "newbs". it took up so much space in the cabin that i ended up buying a dedicated kneeboard rack. if i were doing it all over and my kids were still learning, i would strongly consider the zup. the price is too high for the average guy who wants to have fun with a novelty item.

I bought my 81 to knee board behind, my family and I ski, wakeboard, tube pleasure ride and I really enjoy kneeboarding and hearing the 351 behind my classic Stars and Stripes.
