      Not sure if this is the right forum for Kneeboarding, but I saw the Sweet Potato and said that's my ideal small wave Kneeboard (with a few tweaks).
      I normally ride my Friar Tuck (Parkes) board but was looking for something "out-there" , utilisiing that great double concave V and volume of the SP.

      A fun board for the crappy waves that usually exist around most of the time here in Perth. I bought the 5'8" Sweet Potato refinned it so that two new forward fins where replugged at about an inch gap. This board went well, really fast but was too narrow(22 1/4") and stability an issue and I found and unfortunately kept on catching the rail. It more than likely a riding style not yet adapted to this board.

      I saw another kneeboarder riding similar SP and ripping but with original fin pattern. Anyway SOLD the SP it and bought the 5'11" BP wider at 22 5/8" more volume. I think this will work a lot better but have yet to surf it.

      With this 5 fin board I have more options to experiment, Ill replug for forward fins and put central fin box in to allow more forward centre fin or just put a huge SUP fin in for the old school single fin style.


      Is there any Kneeboarders out there using the SP or BP and your experiences asIMG_9964.jpgIMG_9972_2.jpgIMG_9988.jpgIMG_9991.jpg I would keen to know?

        BP is a great board, well worth the purchase. Best board in my collection.

          Bloody hell, plenty of fun options.
          I kneeboard my sweet p when a hollow closeouf presents its self. Always fun.
