agreed. kneeboarding is a quickly growing sport and needs grassroots support before it can become a global phenomena, like surfing. I believe that week in july will be much like micah is suggesting, also expect a seabreeze to develop around 11am and continue through most of the day.
so do you wear kneepads while kneeboarding or just use a track pad? also, if no trackpad does the wax rub off on your knees? I would assume that would suck, especially if you have hairy knees.
First, allow me to say "thank you" for your interest in our small and misunderstood subculture. I will answer your questions as briefly and honestly as possible. I use trac-top on top of astro deck for mad traction and comfort (nose to tail-rail to rail). Also, I shave my legs while paying special attention around my knee bumps for the mental edge when it comes to speed. As far as the "towed behind a boat" comment, my webbed gloves supply me with all the speed I kneed. ( though in the interest of full disclosure, Sandpiper towed me behind his paddle-boat once)
If youre halfway up already, why not just stand up?
Mahalo from the mainland young man! I would assume that your Polynesian ancestry may assist you in "getting" this kneeboarding thing. Maybe it's that in a kneeling position I am able to better communicate with the god Kanaloa.
