I first bought a kneeboard when they first came out. Those older models were not very comfortable, so I kind of got out of kneeboarding. Howerver, I was shooping at my local sporting goods store, when I came upon this baord.
This one is very different that the old board I have. This board is very light, and it has a great padded area for your knees, and ankles. The old boards were flat. Imagine kneeling on a flat floor, with your ankles pressed down behind you, then you hit some waves, and jam your ankles down more. It hurt after a while.
Now, the padded areas, have pressed in ankle, and knee wells. This makes for a very comfortable ride.
The nice thing about this board, is the ease to get up. Being a light board, you dont have to pull it out of the water, as you are taking off. It manages to get out of the water by the boat.
This also has a cool feature, for maybe kids who cant handle hanging on to the rope yet., it has a hook right on the front, for pulling it out of the water. Makes it great for anyone to use this board.!
This is a lot of fun, and its very easy to use. The board is light, and thin, but its held up well, and even my 280 lb. friend was able to get up on it!
This is a great summer time product!
