Normally they are sore and achy even the next day or so. I did not take any ibuprofen, aspirin or even glucosamine sulfate.
What kind of pain and where in your knees?
I've had sore knees on and off - assumed it was from slamming - then had it again for a few days last month... worried it might have been the fault of riding my big TT, then had a day riding my smaller TT and had the same pain... thought about it for a while - the pain was noticeable when I wobbled from side to side, with feet in place.
Decided that perhaps it was because I was setting up the jumps by driving the board upwind by pushing my feet forward, like I was trying to tail slide on a rail.
Next session, I concentrated on keeping my stance neutral, leaning back against the kite and letting the board carve and my weight do the work.
No more sore knees!
