It’s amazing how a person loses balance later in life. As a kid, I could handle skateboards, surfboards, paddle boards, almost anything that required balance with relative ease. Now I stand on a wobbly chair and I’m on the floor in a matter of seconds.
Balance, like everything else, needs practice and for practice comes the Whirly Board. Whirly Board makes it easy to build balance, coordination, and core strength. This one-piece balance board was designed as a board sport training tool, but any athlete can benefit—and have fun. While other balance boards only move from side to side, Whirly Board lets you go a full 360 degrees or more. Practice spins without going out on the slopes or pavement.
Inventor Erik Olsen, a board sport enthusiast since the age of 12, created the first balance board prototype by attaching half a bowling ball and two halved pool balls to the bottom of a board. Erik noticed that this board helped him with his balance and other boarding skills, so the idea for Whirly Board took hold. He’s been improving the design ever since.
Each balance board is made in Lake Mills, Wisconsin of Canadian maple wood, high density molded polyethylene (HDPE), and durable grip tape. Do skateboard tricks. Practice handle passes wakeboarding and water skiing. There are a ton maneuvers you can try.
