Kneeboard Recommendations?

Does anyone out there kneeboard seriously? My son is advancing in his kneedboarding skills and beginning to move into air tricks. We purchased him an el cheapo a few years back. He wants to move up. Does anyone have recommendations for an "advanced" kneeboard and reasons for those recommendations?

Thank you. So you have ridden the striker? OK. That helps. I do not see the striker available from HO, but obviously the joker is for some $.

Anyone else? Yes, I am a slalom skier and know nothing about kneedboards.

Im thinking the joker and striker are very similar. The really good boards are gonna be pricey, from what i heard the rush 5150 is one of best. These are advanced.

I have been begging (and bribing, actually) him to try slalom. Bought him a starter ski and V-handle. I keep telling him he will be better than I am in a month, although that doesnt really say much. No go...

What does slalom have to do with jumping?

Jumping is somewhere between kneeboard and course skiing on the coolness scale, so you were thinking in the right direction. JK.
