Why did we start Prokneeboarding?
Prokneeboarding was conceived by a small focused UK team in 2020 to promote kneeboarding online. We are passionate about this exciting sport and we have a combined experience of over 30 years within the UK kneeboarding scene.
We are committed to growing the sport in the UK and we want to help to establish a solid online presence to bring others into the community.
This site covers all areas of the kneeboarding scene including tricks (from beginner to expert), best training techniques, gear reviews, information about events and competitions, profiles of leading athletes and information about clubs across the UK.
Our aim is to be the one stop shop for all kneeboarding news and to provide a friendly, honest and no-nonsense view about all aspects of our sport.
We want to bring together the kneeboarding community, online and off-line, and showcase the best talent and equipment around.
When you are starting out it can be difficult to know what to expect and how to progress. We want to break down these barriers and get more people involved. It is very easy to get involved in our small sport, even at a national level, and we want to give you the inside track on how to progress right through from starting out to being a competitor at a national level (it’s easier than it seems).
It can be difficult to get accurate and up-to-date information about the timings, locations and arrangements of national competitions, as well as the rules. There are some easy dos and don’ts and we want to bring you these so you can get involved on the water.
With the Kneeboard World Championships coming in 2021 we also want to promote international links and we’ll be featuring the leading global athletes in the sport through a series of interviews and videos in the months to come. All the leading athletes are committed to promoting the sport and we want to promote coaching opportunities across the UK on this site. There really is something for everyone.
This is a community effort and we hope you will join us on social media and by contributing to this site. We invite anyone to contribute with writing, photos, videos, suggestions or offers of gear for review and in any other way that will help the sport.
We look forward to seeing you on the water soon.
