Well your in the heart land of kneeboarding in Australia.
I'm sure if you make your way to Renmark there is lots of guys there that could help you out.

Or you could make the trip over for doonstock have a great weekend and learn a few things while you are here.

If all else fails There is instructionals in Waterski Mag on tricks you can do on a kneeboard

Kneeboarding takes real skill ;)

anyone can bust out a flip on a wakeboard :P (kinda)

but if your standing on the shore and you see some dude ride past and do a flip its like yeah.. that was pretty decent...

MxDan: Good to see some females love to get in to the sport as well Australia is missing some top level female riders so would be good to help your daughter progress and hopefully become a good female kneeboarder.

Velocity: The basic tricks are very much the same with wakeboarding and kneeboarding the only real difference is kneeboarders can do combo tricks and wakeboarders can't. All inverted tricks look sick Wakeboard or kneeboard!

Hey Marc with you coming to Doonstock this year inspired me to dust of my old Hydoslyde for a couple of runs this weekend.
I am only managing wake to wake jumps and grabs but still good fun. :D

I was up in Yarrawonga for Cup weekend and i dont think i stuck one backroll! I used to be able to get them just about everytime!! So frustrating. And unfortunately I dont think I will be able to make it up to Doonstock
Sport, music, mates, sand and water. Bliss.

no never seen him ride cable. but it has to be done behind a boat to count not to discredit him in any way.

If you can't make it d_wyatt send me a pm of when your free next if you want to go out for a ride. i could even come out with you behind your boat so your behind the boat you know.
I find when i'm struggling with a trick i just go out a try something easier or work on something else to get the confidence back up then go for it again. nothing worse then smashing you self trying the same trick over and over.

i saw a video of some guy riding boat.
he does a trick then lands into a front to fakie.
is that what you mean by combo tricks?
it seems like a stupid idea to me, thats just my opinion,

Here is a video of some americans back in 94 if you can be bothered to watch it. alot of at the start then it moves in to some cool moves

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GLobs0kt-A

I think it look pretty cool seeing combos and it takes a fair bit of skill to get it right be it on a knee board or a wake board
