I have seen the Indo Boards around and was wondering how much they can help with wakeboarding. They look like a great tool for the off season to work on balance, strength, etc.. I'd love to hear all your thoughts!

Also, if someone is selling one.....I may be interested.

There is a trick to giting an indo or any balance board to actually help train you. What you need to do is put a hook in the roof then attach free weights to the rope put the roap threw the hook and over to where you have the board set up. this will give you a pull like you are on the water great for learning wakeskate tricks. (PB showed me that)

Great idea!! Simulates the pull while you practice your tricks. Now, any ideas on which Indo Board to get. The original or the longer one? Which one do you all use and how much does it really help in the offseason?

It is good for building small proprioceptive (stabilizing) muscles in the knees and ankles, which can potentially help reduce injury while helping with balance. Physical therapists use similar tools to rehab injuries. I made my own for next to nothing - 8" diameter industrial-grade plastic pipe (go to pipe supplier for a scrap or find one somewhere), some bathtub traction strips from Home Depot, scrap of thick plywood. My new thing is to balance on a 2x4 instead of the plywood - forces you to balance heel to toe in addition to left and right. It's pretty hard, you guys should try it. Just lay about a 3 foot section of 2x4 on your cylinder, step on and try to achieve stability.

Run a concave skateboard deck, that makes things fun and interesting.

Great for rehab of knees and ankles, also look into balance discs - performbetter.com
