My name is Tom Kohl I am one of the 5 riders of the newly assembled HO Pro Kneeboard Team. Up here in cold Minnesota the lakes still have ice on them, but the snow melted fast and we couldn’t wait to ride so we took advantage of the floods! Armed with our winch and our rails we set out to find the perfect flooded out area to ride, built a rail and rode rails all day. The wakeboarders didn’t know what hit them!! Thanks to Seek Joy productions we got some awesome footage! This is just the start of a kneeboard revolution! There will be a wake video to come soon too!

    Yeah tom!!So sick!! Who cares if its kneeboarding! Its supporting the watersports and a kneeboarder is hitting rails! At least its an ollie on!!
    Why so much hate in the community of wakeboarding! Stop hating and just have fun with what you like to do!

     
  7. Tommy Says:

    Sick Tom! Wake boarding and kneeboarding are two sports that should join ventures and help each other scale the wake to new heights. Kneeboarding is at a new level to what most of the current wake boarders are aware of. I have great respect for wake boarders and think that any respectable athlete wether it be wake boarding, football, ice hockey or any other sport, for that matter, would respect what a good deal of the more talented kneeboarders are throwing down.

    Either way if your hitting the water shred the Gnar and have a good time, catch it on video and share it with the world.

    why would you not just wakeboard?

     
  9. matt from canada Says:

    i forsee some serious consequences if you don’t make it on the rail. feel free to not make it on the rail.

     
  10. Tomk Says:

    Thanks everyone for the support, kneeboarding is coming back! be ready to see us go big summer and bring it hard to the watersports world!

     
  11. Danny T Says:

    I Want to see more! this guy is living the dream…

     
  12. Tuneman Says:

    Tom is the Man!! Mad props. Look for some amazing riding coming from this guy all summer long. Kneeboarding is here.

     
  13. Stefan Says:

    Definitely sweet video Tom, and you’re the right guy for this team for being innovative in several ways. A few new tricks, and you’ve brought winching to the kneeboard world in a public way which I have yet to see anyone else do. I’m loving the comeback kneeboarding finally seems to be making. The obstinate people who think that wakeboarding and kneeboarding are the same thing except the former is superior will have little bearing on the outcome. Asking ‘why not just wakeboard and such questions is as obtuse a question as asking why a wakeboarder wouldn’t just slalom ski. I look forward to more video as the season progresses.

    try learning to read and write “that might would be interested” (then I might be interested?, then I would be interested?)

  17. seekjoy Says:

    Yeah Tom! Knees of steel!!! Can’t wait for round 2!

     
  18. systemknee Says:

    I heard HO is making a System Kneeboard strap, like the System binding that Hyperlite made.

     
  19. kiteknee Says:

    Hell Yeah! I can’t wait until we see the first Knee Kite. The Wake Kite guys are going to be blown away…maybe we’ll see Knee Skis too. Wake Skis are so lame right now. KNEE SKIS! Do it.

     
  20. juststop Says:

    Please just stop hating, he likes to kneeboard, so what!?! All of us like to do different activities behind the boat, brotherly love man.

     
  21. Tommy Says:

    I doubt he really cares if the kneeboard haters come on here and bash. No doubt about it you gotta be tough to do this stuff wether its on your knees or standing up. Wait till they see the wake stuff, there is no way they can say its lame. Atleast they cant say it and keep any respect from athletes from a higher level of skill.

     
  22. cole hawkins Says:

    sorry to sounds like a hater, but what the fuck were you thinking when you made this vid? have fun smashing your nuts every time you w2w ;) my question was serious

  26. Ricky Bobby Says:

    Whoa… I would like my 47 seconds back please.

     
  27. KM Says:

    Why the hell do people insist on talking crap. Who cares what you ride. It’s a board and usually involves a wake. Kneeboarding and “skiboarding” were once known as the world of “wakeboarding”. Like it or not, Wakeboarding roots includes kneeboarding. Shut up and ride.

     
  28. tomk Says:

    Thanks guys for all the support!! I agree with KM, dont talk crap just RIDE!!!! I couldnt have gotten this far without Dan kohl and Josh Tranby the two of best wakeboarders I know. Who cares what we ride, just kill it!! and push it to the limits.

  29. jibbro Says:

  38. max Says:

  39. Kenny Powers for President Says:

    One of the best quotes I’ve ever heard: “Kneeboarding is for people who like to be on their knees.”

     
  40. Wake Up Says:

    I remember talking trash. I think I was 11 or 12 at the time. Anyways…

    This is great. We are starting to see a lot more happening with Kneeboarding!
