What is the Indo Board?
The Indo Board was designed by Hunter Joslin, an avid user of balance boards since 1965.
The Indo Board Balance Trainers are simple, stable, and user friendly.
Anyone can ride with a few basic instructions and something or someone to hold on to for support.
The learning curve is 10 to 15 minutes for most, after that, Indo Boarding becomes routinely easy and fun.
The Indo Board Goal
The Indo Board goal is to introduce a FUN and CHALLENGING way to exercise the bodies balance control systems. Even though balance is so easily taken for granted, human movement is dependent on balance and coordination. In this new age of fitness awareness, the notion of balance training IS essential, particularly in board sports and all physical activities utilizing the core muscles.
Keeping the board from touching the ground for extended rides is both the goal and challenge.
Indo Board Tricks
As you improve and progress with your Indo’ing, you will begin to challenge yourself with a whole lot of new exciting tricks.
Once you have mastered standing on the board and rocking it side to side, tricks in the beginning start off with moving foot placement to different positions on the board and progress to anything you can imagine and think up. A great way to challenge yourself is to do it with mates – each person having a go at a trick and trying to nail it so everyone is pushing themselves and everyone else. It leads to many many hours of very enjoyable fun!!
More advance tricks include shuv-its, ollies, jumping on from the side, nose grabs and many many more.
