Video: Jobe Sports Unveils New Omnia Kneeboard


maxresdefault

OK, admittedly once you come to learn what the new Jobe Omnia actually is, simply calling it a “kneeboard” is doing this awesome new product a big disservice. Why? Because it not only works as a kneeboard, but the Omnia is also a waterski, wakeskate and wakesurf board! (We should’ve guessed, right? It’s got “omni” in the name itself.) Designed with input from Jobe’s own professional watersports team riders, the Omnia takes the place of three or four different boards in your boat’s storage or the footwell of your PWC.

The lightweight board is compression molded out of PU foam and fiberglass making it incredibly durable and strong while keeping down the weight. The Omnia also includes an innovative feature for both beginners and more advanced riders: a handle hook, allowing riders to begin without needing to hang on to the rope itself, but the board. This also allows riders to hold on to the side grips while kneeboarding, or standing up into position.

According to the video below, no other board of this kind offers riders six different riding positions, the use of a handle hook, or the ease and accessibility of riding and enjoying the water in this fashion! Kneeboards and wakeskates have already caught on with PWC owners, and we’re certain that Jobe’s new Omnia board will be a homerun with those looking to enjoy their watercraft with friends and family.
