OZ is the heartland.


To me, it still is more pure than surfing these days.

There was a knee guy soloing the outer bombie at a wave I surfed a few days ago. Back home there was only one guy really still doing it, havent seen him in ages. Rarely see them anymore, always wanted to have a go.

Why bigger boards like the aussies? I thought they were typically very short?

No swim fins.

More board, more volume, more flotation. Still kneeboarding. A whole different stylee.

I guess the legless guys attest that you dont lose any maneuverability with the bigger board.

I was chatting with a guy about knee boarding and got excited and told him you gotta check out these legless guy! He got really weird and got close to me and said quietly, wait they have no legs? Kind of put off by my enthusiasm and response.

Wonder what the fin setups on those are? Looked like a few twinnies from what I saw. Beautiful waves! The Aussies seem to ride so much more alternative, experimental, non-conventional stuff which is so cool!

Kneeboarding to me is so interesting because there are two active schools.

Toby Pavel, Steve Lis for the USA and the Aussies.


The Fish, I have Steve's contact info, before I die...


The Fish is a kneeboard, This is its roots. USA.

Up here in Santa Cruz, John Mel with the Twinzer.

Different approaches to the same end.

Kneeboarding videos are so much better than surferpap.
