As you know there are a lot of retailers opening their doors on Thanksgiving Day. We have elected not to follow that trend. WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IS A DAY OF CELEBRATION WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS.

This means that none of our stores will be open on Thanksgiving Day.

How will a pro kneeboard help my tricks?

If you have mastered the back roll while kneeboarding, you might want to try the front roll. Here’s a quick summary of how to do it:

  • For a front roll, hit the opposite wake of the one that you use for your backroll.
  • Cut in the direction of the wake, and when the tip of your kneeboard hits the wake, take the air as you would for a jump, but then throw your head and shoulders forward as you push the tip of your kneeboard down.
  • If you don’t think you are getting enough rotation, you might be going into your roll too soon, so try waiting a moment longer, and be sure you let your kneeboard get behind you as you roll.

To maximize your success with rolls and other kneeboarding tricks, invest in a pro kneeboard. A pro kneeboard is slightly less buoyant than the kneeboards used by beginners, but it is compression-molded, making it thinner, lighter, more durable, and better suited for tricks.

Visit your local Sun & Ski Sports shop for expert advice on choosing a pro kneeboard.
