Im wondering if any1 has made an indo board. If so roughly what demensions did you use for the board and what is the diameter of your roller. Thanks

you can make one with an old skate deck then take a 2 liter bottle fill it with water and start duct taping the whole thing (use a good roll or two just in case there is a leak) it works great and you can do flip tricks a lot easier than on an actual indo board

The best homemade indo board like above uses an old skate deck but instead of a 2 liter bottle get a 4 inch diameter pvc pipe and rap it with duck tape.

We made our own board and used 4 inch PVC pipe and then put RV no slip tape in 3 sections around it, so that it doesnt slip as easy. We used a 1 inch board with a 14x33 rounded off corners. Its been fun...our only issue is the 4 inch pvc pipe...looks like the indo uses a 6 inch pipe. We can work with the 4 and its still workable for sure. Dad and I debated on making a couple and then selling them, cheaper than indo boards for sure...lots cheaper, not an indo, but serves its purpose...

I found that skate decks dont work too great because of the concavity side to side, they are very wobbly (which is better for pure balance if thats what you are after). The only one I "made" was a 2x? and a head of a croquet mallet as the roller. Sketchy, yes...but surprisingly effective. It was stable on the roller but was more sensitive side to side than an indo, I guess because of the tiny roller.

Heres 2 pics of our Homemade indos/balance board. Works well, we have the 4 inch pvc on it and it works well but think we are also going to get a 6 inch pipe for it. The stoppers are glued in and also we concaved the area where the screws go in so they don't drag.
