Here is an excerpt from the new Kneeboard information webpage:
" The sport of skating has thrown up many different variants involving changes in either the surface on which the skating is being done or the material that is used to skate. Take off the wheels and surf on sand and you have a totally different sport. Lose the wheels of the board and add binding to the board to do wakeboarding while being towed by a boat. One variant of wakeboarding is kneeboarding. So what does kneeboarding involve?
As the phrase suggests, kneeboarding is wakeboarding when standing on your knees. The idea may seem incongruous at first. Standing on one’s feet when surfing on water is difficult enough for most participants. Will it not be even more difficult to surf when standing on your knees?
Funnily, kneeboarding is actually easier and safer than wakeboarding. In fact, experts recommend kneeboarding as a precursor or training course for those who want to do wakeboarding. This is so because your center of gravity is very low when you are standing on your knees. Further, you offer less scope for wind resistance to affect your surfing. Further, standing on your knees actually gives you more maneuverability and makes it easier to handle the board. Hence, using kneeboards is the best way to get introduced to the water sport of wakeboarding."
