The purpose of a balance board
The goal of a balance board is to keep the board off the ground for as long as possible. This sounds easy, but once you are on the board you will find that your whole body has to work together to get this done. In this way you train large to small muscles in your body. Perfect for training your balance, poise and coordination. Also think about possible injuries, a balance board can be ideal for example to strengthen your ankle or knee after an injury.
Many kitesurfers, windsurfers and wave surfers use the balance board in different ways to make the workout challenging for each person's skill level. A balance board can be used in many different ways. For example, use your balance board both lying down and standing up, think of dynamic or static exercises such as: squatting, throwing a ball or using kettlebells or other weights. All this will benefit you while surfing and before you know it you'll be ready to hit the water!
Why buy a balance board?
It has probably happened to you a few times already, the wind is nice outside, but you don't have time to get out on the water. On the days you are free you will see that the wind forecast or wave height is not good enough. What do you do then?
To that end, perhaps a balance board is the right alternative! With a balance board you can work out from home every day, whenever and wherever you want! Train your balance and coordination so you stay fit and ready for the next session! A good balance and coordination can be used in various sports such as windsurfing, kitesurfing, wakeboarding, golf surfing and skateboarding. In addition, with a balance board you also train abdominal muscles, coordination and posture.
What does a balance board consist of?
A balance board consists of a board and a roller. Both ends of the board have stoppers that prevent the balance board from coming off the roller. These stoppers are ideal when you are practicing to prevent you from falling hard.
The balance boards are also equipped with a non-slip coating. The non-slip layer ensures that you do not slip during your exercises and can use it safely. Think for example of your windsurf board or wave surf board that also have a non-slip or wax layer.
Nowadays, Indo Boards has designed not only rollers but also a special air cushion, the IndoFlo. The advantage of the IndoFlo compared to a roller, is that the chance of falling is reduced while you can still do a complete workout. With the IndoFlo, your balance board becomes unstable. This makes your balance training challenging and fun, while all aspects of good balance training are covered by the IndoFlo.
Rocker shape is a balance board designed for anyone who likes a challenge and wants to practice cool tricks. The Rocker of the balance board creates two big kicks at both ends, which makes it easier to perform more difficult tricks. A Rocker shape balance board is ideal for people who want to practice more than just basic exercises.
