Knee braces for jump
What knee braces do you recommend for jump? Where do you buy them? Buying for my G3 skier. Thx.
At one point my son was wearing one I bought from Dick's. I don't think anything you buy in a retail store is medically supportive (if that is a term) but my son felt like it gave him a little bit of support and he felt better wearing it.

We use McDavid Level 3 Dual-Disk Knee Brace. $55 each at Academy sports. They were recommended to us by several high level coaches and offer a reasonable level of protection for lateral knee motion.
Good for piece of mind and injury protection, but nothing is 100%
If it was easy, they would call it wakeboarding.
said, DonJoy. I don't jump, but after ACL surgery, I used the DonJoy Defiance III most of my first summer slalom skiing after surgery, and it was very supportive (and, provided some piece of mind). And, I hardly knew I was wearing it except for occasional bang on the other knee.
You can get them on-line, and either custom fit, or standard sizes. It held up very well with frequent water use, except for occasionally having to reinstall/reposition the condyle pads held on by Velcro. These are not inexpensive. So, if limited support is needed, look at what
mentioned. If more support is needed, strongly consider DonJoy. Most college football players wanting or needing knee braces use DonJoy.

We used the Shock Doctor Ultra Knee Support with bilateral hinges.
Back to my wakeboarding time. I used
. Does a good job during hard landing. Many pro wakeboarders use it.
Shock Doctors are a good brace for the money. About $50 each at Dick's.
