AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO PARENTS:
This manual contains important safety information. For your child’s safety, it is your
responsibility to review this information with your child and make sure that your
child understands all warnings, cautions, instructions, and safety topics. Nextsport
recommends that you periodically review and reinforce the information in this
manual with younger riders, and that you inspect and maintain your child’s kneeboard to ensure their safety.
WARNING: Kneeboard riding can be a hazardous activity. Kneeboards can
and are intended to move, and it is therefore possible to get into dangerous situations and/or lose control and/or fall off. If such things occur, serious injury may
result. LIKE ANY OTHER MOVING PRODUCTS, SUCH AS BICYCLES, SKATEBOARDS, OR IN-LINE SKATES, RIDING A KNEEBOARD CAN BE A DANGEROUS
ACTIVITY AND MAY RESULT IN INJURY, EVEN WHEN USED WITH PROPER
SAFETY PRECAUTIONS. USE AT YOUR OWN RISK AND USE COMMON
SENSE.
Read the instructions carefully and assemble the kneeboard according to these
instructions before you allow the child to ride. This kneeboard requires assembly
by an adult.

HOW TO RIDE
Correct
FIGURE
1
Incorrect
1. RIDING POSITION
Position knees and shins on the outer foam pads
as if kneeling. Grasp the handle bars with both
hands. Shift your body weight towards your feet
(to the rear of the board), arms slightly bent. Your
head should be positioned behind the handlebars,
eyes looking forward. (figure 1)
2. MOVEMENT (Kicking and Pumping)
2
Movement by kicking is achieved by rapidly pushFIGURE
ing your foot against the
pavement. Repeat this motion several times, returning the kick leg to the knee pad
then gliding.
Kick, kick, glide. ALWAYS have both hands on the handlebar while kicking. Practice
kicking with both legs in order to familiarize yourself with the SpinnerShark and learn
the most comfortable riding technique for you. (figure 2)
Movement by pumping is achieved without kicking. Assume the riding position. Both
hands should be on the grips, knees on the pads, weight shifted back and head behind
the handlebars. Quickly turn the handlebars back and forth, and wiggle like a shark.
Practice kicking, gliding and pumping. Repeat until you are comfortable. Proper
technique and riding position will ensure balance and stability.

HOW TO RIDE
3. TURNING and STEERING
Your kneeboard has 180º steering which allows you to turn quickly and sharply. By
turning the handlebar, the wheels will steer like a bicycle. By varying the degree of
rotation you can achieve gentle curves, circles, or 180º direction change.
Ride on smooth flat pavement away from traffic and obstacles. With eyes looking
forward and head behind handlebars, kick for movement. Initiate a turn by slowly
turning the handlebars in the direction you want to go. Start with wide smooth turns.
Practice by making big circles in both directions and figure eights. Repeat until you are
comfortable. By relaxing your grip on the handlebars, your hands will naturally follow
your head and eye movement.
A rapid turning motion will result in a rapid direction change.
Practice your SpinnerShark steering. Repeat until you are comfortable.
Proper technique will ensure balance and stability.
BRAKING
4.
Controlling speed and stopping are basic riding skills that must be learned. It is dangerous to ride faster than your ability to turn, slow down and stop. Always exercise
good judgment, ride within your skill level and remain safe.
While in the proper riding position, gradually squeeze the hand mounted lever inward
with both hands. Varying the degree of squeezing will result in speed reduction or
stopping. Practice using the brake lever to slow down gradually and then stop. Your
head should be positioned behind the handlebars, eyes looking forward. (figure 1)
A strong and rapid braking motion could result in a sudden stop. Practice
braking your SpinnerShark. Repeat until you are comfortable. Proper technique
will ensure balance and stability.

FUZION™ SAFETY TIPS
FUZION SpinnerShark 4-Wheel Kneeboard is for riders 8 years and older.
Always wear proper protective equipment, such as an ANSI, SNELL, CPSC, or
ASTM approved helmet, elbow and wrist pads.
Always keep the chinstrap securely buckled on the helmet. Long sleeve shirt, long
pants, shoes, and elbow and knee pads are mandatory.
Always have an adult assist children with the initial adjustment procedures to assemble and adjust the kneeboard.
Always ride on smooth, paved surfaces away from motor vehicles. Avoid sharp
bumps, drainage grates, and sudden surface changes that may cause the kneeboard to stop suddenly. Keep both hands on the HANDLE BARS at all times and
avoid stepping on or touching the front or rear WHEELS when riding.
Always avoid streets and surfaces with water, sand, gravel, dirt, leaves, and other
debris. Wet weather impairs traction, braking, and visibility. Avoid anything that
could cause your wheels to stop. Bumps have the potential to stop the wheels.
When in doubt, avoid the bumps.
Always obey all local traffic and kneeboard riding laws and regulations. Watch out
for pedestrians. Never ride in traffic or on the street and watch your surroundings
for pedestrians, bikers, boarders, and skaters.
Do Not ride on sloped or hilly surfaces. Excessive speed may develop.
Do not ride at night or dusk.
Do not ride barefoot or in sandals. Wear athletic shoes (lace-up shoes with rubber soles). Keep shoelaces out of the way of wheels or pivots.
Always install safety flag before using. Parental supervision is required.
Do Not stand or jump on deck surface. Unintended use can cause injury,
will void the warranty, and may cause permanent damage to your kneeboard.
Do Not deliberately steer into other riders. Doing so may cause serious injury.
Always store indoors and avoid direct sunlight.
Do Not touch after braking. Brake will get hot from continuous use.
Do Not ride your kneeboard backwards.

MAINTENANCE
Wheels and Bearings
It is the responsibility of the owner or guardian to periodically inspect the wheels and
bearings for wear and tear.
Eventually wheels and bearings wear and need replacement. The life of these
components depends on the kind of riding. Lots of sliding will wear out the wheels. Riding in dirty or wet conditions will prematurely shorten the bearings life. Worn wheels and
bearings are considered normal wear-and-tear and are not covered by the Nextsport
Limited Warranty.
Wheels other than genuine Fuzion™ wheels may not be compatible with your
Kneeboard. Always use genuine Fuzion replacement parts.
Cleaning your Kneeboard
Wipe with a damp cloth to remove dirt and dust. Do not use industrial cleaners or solvents as they may damage the surfaces. Do not use alcohol, alcohol-based or ammoniabased cleaners as they may damage or dissolve the plastic components or soften the
decals or decal adhesive.
Always replace worn or broken parts immediately. Call 1-800-727-0331.
LIMITED WARRANTY

period of six months from date of purchase. This Limited Warranty does not cover
normal wear and tear, or any damage, failure, or loss caused by improper assembly,
maintenance, storage, or use of the kneeboard.
This Limited Warranty will be void if the product is ever:
• Used in a manner other than for recreation or transportation
• Modified in any way
• Rented
Check local laws and regulations to see where you can ride your kneeboard legally.
The manufacturer is not liable for incidental or consequential loss or damage due
directly or indirectly from the use of this product.

WARNING: ALWAYS INSPECT KNEEBOARD PRIOR TO RIDING. Proper
inspection and maintenance of your kneeboard can reduce the risk of injury. Check
all fasteners before every ride. Always inspect your kneeboard before riding, and
maintain it regularly. Replace worn or broken parts immediately. Adults must assist
children in the assembly and initial adjustment procedure.
WARNING: REGARDING USE OF NON-NEXTSPORT PRODUCTS WITH
YOUR FUZION KNEEBOARD. Your kneeboard has been built to Nextsport’s design
specifications. All the original equipment supplied at the time of sale was selected on
the basis of compatibility with the frame, wheels, pivots, and all other parts. Certain
after-market products may or may not be compatible with your FUZION kneeboard.
Call Nextsport’s customer service prior to modifying or replacing any component
with a non-factory specified part.
WARNING: CHECK ALL LOCAL LAWS REGARDING KNEEBOARD USE.
Check all local laws and regulations to see where and how you may use your
FUZION kneeboard legally. In many states and local areas kneeboard riders are
required BY LAW to wear a helmet. Check and obey local laws and regulations regarding laws governing helmet use and kneeboard operation in your area.
