What are some examples of different kneeboard shapes?

Kneeboarding is a towed water sport in which the rider kneels on a specialized board and holds a tow rope and handle as in wakeboarding, wakeskating, or wakesurfing.

Kneeboards are available in several standard shapes:

  • Parabolic: A parabolic kneeboard angles to a flat nose shape and tail shape. The Hydroslide Phantom Kneeboard is an example of a parabolic kneeboard.
  • Twin-tipped diamond-shaped: A twin-tipped diamond shaped kneeboard has a nose shape and tail shape that each angle to a point, with straight sides, so the overall appearance of these kneeboard shapes is that of an elongated diamond. The Ho Sports Proton kneeboard is an example of a twin-tipped diamond-shaped kneeboard.
  • Squared-off: Some kneeboard shapes are more like giant rectangles, such as the Ho Sports Element kneeboard, which also features hard rails that let you hold a deeper edge.

For expert advice about different kneeboard shapes and styles, visit your local Sun & Ski Sports shop.
