Types of Kneeboards

In the beginning, kneeboarding was just a fun water sport, but it soon also became a competitive water sport. When that happened, various additions had to be made to make kneeboards more for competition than their original design. That is why today there are two types of kneeboards. One type of kneeboards is like the original one, made for people to have fun kneeboarding without thinking about beating the other team or individuals, with no need for special tricks and stuff like that. The other type of kneeboard is made especially to be used in various competitions. These kneeboards are made for advanced kneeboarders to be able to do some awesome tricks and stunts with their kneeboards. Because of certain specific differences between these two types, as you will see, there is also another important difference, which is related to the cost of each type. As one would expect, beginner kneeboards are much cheaper than professional kneeboards, which have various additions to make them more professional in look and feel. I will go into further details about both of these types in the following paragraphs so that in the end, you’ll have a better understanding of the two types.

Regarding kneeboards for fun, they tend to be a rotomolded board, which is much cheaper than various other high tech models and it also has soft and wide edges that are great for beginners who aren’t planning on doing any advanced water tricks or stunts. Another good aspect is that this type of design offers easier turning. Basically, thanks to certain design characteristics, turning is possible to be performed by beginners in a much easier way than one would expect and it has great control, so beginners do not have any trouble in preventing loss of control. These boards are relatively thick and they float easily. There are also some additions offered as extra help for beginners with regard to turning of the kneeboard.

Regarding kneeboards for competition, they are molded by compression and offer much more for execution of various stunts and added durability. Unlike the kneeboards for fun, these are much thinner and lighter - plus they have sharper edges so that advanced kneeboarders are able to do quick turns and various other advanced water tricks and stunts. These kneeboards are also much more expensive than the beginner ones, because of all the high tech manufacturing the various additions. Another important thing with this type of kneeboards is that they aren’t as buoyant as the kneeboards for beginners, which mean they don’t float as easily and thus it allows advanced kneeboarders to use deepwater starts.

After you’ve read this it’s up to you to choose what type of kneeboarding are you interested in. Also, keep in mind that if you aren’t ready to dedicate extra time to kneeboarding then you shouldn’t even consider the competition type, because of it extra cost - and if you aren’t going to invest your time and to be serious about it, then it’s best to go with kneeboarding for fun.

Kneeboard Brands

As with everything else, kneeboarding also has its own market. Since it appeared and started acquiring vast popularity, various brands arose. Everyone wants a piece of the pie, but which pie tastes the best is what we’ll try to discover in this article.

Firstly, some people tend to buy certain brands because of its popularity, which doesn’t necessarily means that the brand in question is the best - it’s just the most popular one. Like cars that run on gas, they aren’t the best cars, but they are the most popular cars, for now. So, before coming to a conclusion about a brand, you have to look at its quality. This is sometimes hard to do with certain products, especially if you are just another buyer, but with some kneeboards, it’s much easier to assess quality, but it does however require you to have a lot of experience in kneeboarding.

Today most of kneeboards are manufactured by the same manufacturers that make water skis. One of the very important aspects in comparing an ordinary kneeboard compared to a good one is its weight. The basic idea behind having a great and fun kneeboarding experience is to have very light kneeboard, but obviously not too light. You have to know exactly how much you weigh and how much your kneeboard should weigh compared to your weight. One of the best manufacturers of kneeboards has to be O’Brien.

O’Brien has been in the business of water sports and manufacturing for various water sports forever. O’Brien is a true legend in the field of water sports. Today it is still a strong brand and it is manufacturing surf boards, water skis and various other water sport equipment, including kneeboards. They are constantly trying to improve themselves and their products and - most importantly - is that they are succeeding.

If someone is new to kneeboarding - or has years or even decades of experience - O’Brien’s kneeboards will suit them perfectly. Top notch quality, help, support and long history to support its quality, all say that choosing an O’Brien’s product will guarantee quality and a fun time doing whatever water sport you are interested in.

One of the best guarantees when choosing a good brand regarding any product is the brand’s history. The longer the history, the better guarantee of its quality, but obviously only if it has improved over time. In the end, regardless of what the masses say regarding the best brand of any product, it is the individual’s feeling and understanding of a specific product made by specific brand that matters the most. Some may have luck in getting the best product from a brand associated with lesser quality products. On the other hand, some just don’t care what the brand of their product is, as long as it works well and didn’t cost much, or especially if it was free.
