    I don't know what to make of it.

      I thought kneeboards were for people who can't do anything else. This is even worse.

        Not everyone is an experienced wakeboarder or slalom skier. There is always a market for entry level equipment and this s just another twist. They will probably make some money on this.

          Just seems flimsy to me.

            I agree and it would take up a lot of space. I bring tubes for people who can't ski or wakeboard. At least I can fold those up and tuck them away easily. The zup seems like it would be similar to a moped. They are fun but you don't want to be seen on one.

              hmm, $329 for the board and a $119 for the rope and handle.

                It's about having fun on the water, not meeting approval of the water sports elite. Every time someone makes a snobby comment like that, it makes me want to go buy another tube.

                  I wasn't meaning to be snobby by any means. And my family and I are by no means watersports elites. I'm just saying that's an awful lot of money for a modified snow sled.

                    I learned to feel comfortable in the water on something like this. When we were kids, my Dad attached a wood dowel to a bit of rope and attached that to a 2'x4' sheet of plywood. The tow rope hooked on under the front of the plywood and dragged it like a sled. It was excellent to teach us kids it's not the end of the world if you fall in the water. You could sit, stand, cut, go backwards... Whatever you were brave enough for. After a couple weeks, the skis came out and the board was put away.

                    I see a market with this, but like a razor scooter... It's for the kids. I absolutely detest tubes, but I can't help but laugh when I take kids out. If it makes them happy, I'm happy. A day at the lake in the sunshine, with everyone having fun, beats a -28 pass with two other people any day.

                      I also think this is a little snobby, but its JMO. We wakeskate, surf, ski, wakeboard, tube and kneeboard. I want people to have fun doing "something" on the water.

                      I started my watersports adventures about 50 years ago riding a homemade plywood version of this and thought it was great fun..........

                        I appologize. Truly was not meant that way. It was meant to be sarcastic. We have done plenty of tubing and kneeboarding and riding various other objects behind the boat too that were never intended to be. I've even rode a kneeboard with a sheet of plastic on the bottom of it held on by sheet metal screws because we wore through the bottom of the board riding behind quads on paved roads. Trust me, I don't care what anyone rides.

                          my kid wanted to ride a piece of foam that we found and was shaped like a lobster, he had a blast on that thing.

                              Looks fun to me I'd play with one but the price is a bit high for me. I think kneeboarding is still fun seriously
                              wake to wake. 360's. going backwards.
                              It's still fun this would be fun too ,looks cool.
                              I prefer to slalom. But I still do it all . Like what was said before a day out with the family is what
                              It is all about. I even still pull out a pair of skis and go on two skis just to fool around. That can be fun also. But I am getting old .

                              I was skiing
                              Before wake boarding and towers where even around , back when it was cool to jump start
                              From the beach. Lol.
                              I still have my pair of trick
                              Ski's. doh!

                              Cheers I would play with one it looks fun

                              Lol. Cheers.
