I remember reading on here a few months back about different styles of balance boards... I saw this post from Jocko elsewhere &amp; thought it summed it all up... <BR> <BR>>>I'd recommend the Indo Board. I spend about 90% of my time riding it 50/50, <BR>not the typical boardslide side to side, but really riding it like it's a <BR>board 50/50. You can't do this on the Vew-Do because it has that rail down <BR>the center and the groove on the roller. <BR> <BR>Indo's are flat and at any time I can turn the board 90 degrees to the <BR>roller and ride it differently. This opens up a whole new world of 50/50 <BR>tricks. I can ride the Indo 50/50, then get my feet into the Hang Ten <BR>position off the nose of the board while it's still 50/50 on the roller and <BR>then press it up into a nosepress and come back down. Yew can't Dew that on <BR>a Vew-Do. <BR> <BR>Another thing we do we call Around The World. Start at boardslide, do a <BR>trick, then turn 90 degrees to 50/50, then do another trick, turn 90 degrees <BR>again to boardslide position, etc until you go all the way around the Indo <BR>Board. If you fall, you begin again from the beginning. <BR> <BR>Another trick you can do on the Indo Board that yew can't Vew-Do, we stand <BR>the roller up on it's edge and balance the Indo Board on the top, then jump <BR>up to balance on the board and then try to ride it while you topple over the <BR>roller and try to land the board on the roller. Does that make any sense? <BR>I think you might have to come over and see that one. It's pretty intense. <BR>We get some great wipeouts, but it feels sort of like dropping in. It's a <BR>rush. <BR> <BR>Balance boards are about finding your Zen and letting your creativity and <BR>imagination flow. I think that the flat bottom of the Indo Board makes it <BR>less restrictive on your creativity. Everyday I come up with another Indo <BR>trick to try. Most of them land me on my ass. But there's always that one <BR>that I land that makes me keep trying. <BR> <BR>Peace. <BR>Jocko <BR>WAKEtv <BR> <BR>PS This post was not sponsored by Indo Boards, I just really like Indo <BR>Boards alot and I wondered how many times I could write Indo Boards and get <BR>away with it. Indo Boards! Indo Indo Boards!!<< <BR> <BR>~Forrest

I love my Pivit board and its a great 'warm up' before I go wakeboarding. Everyone that comes to our house is interested in this 'contraption' its fun to watch newbies get on and watch them progress from 'mechanical bull riding jerky type movements to smooth surfboard like flowing movements!!' <BR> <BR>my next toy is a Flowlab !!! which I am sure the pivit board is preparing me for..<img src="http://www.wakeworld.com/MB/Discus/clipart/proud.gif" border=0>

Has anyone ridden the "420 A-justa-board" the discription says it's better (duh) and it's about 1/3 the price. Any ideas? <BR> <BR><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=3642713531&amp;cat egory=2916" target="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;item=3642713531&amp;cat egory=2916</a>

What do they really do for you? Do they make you a better wakeboarder?

I have an indo board just the 101 but I love it, well i got it a year ago and only use it once in a while now, but I think all of the practice from before has helped me w/everything

the only thing that makes you a better wakeboarder is more wakeboarding. However, a balance board can help w/ balance, then learn to ollie, kickflip, etc.. good for learning to hit sliders too. <BR>Great fun &amp; excellent training tool. <BR>think the webste is <a href="http://www.indoboard.com" target="_blank">www.indoboard.com</a>
