A needle aspiration is a very common method (having the fluid removed with a needle). It is normally numbed with a local anaesthetic first before it is drained. If you have ANY fears please discuss them with your doctor. Your doctor should have explained the procedure to you in the first place.

How do you land better on a knee board?

If you want to land better on a knee board, I find that right as you are about to hit the wake, lean back and right before you hit the water, bring your knees closer to you, which causes the front of the board to get lift so the back of the knee board hits the water and then the front comes down. I find that if I don't do that, I wobble a lot more.
