Wicked! I’ve tried balance boards before, but only with the cylinder to balance on. The ball adds another dimension of balance to the equation and I love it! A good blend of challenge and fun, if you are familiar with balancing. Very relatable to snowboarding. If you have never tried a balance board, I would start on the cylinder and work up to the ball. Very stoked on my purchase!
This title says it all, and I have a owned 4 different brands, + 1 (have been familiarized with the iconic endo board.) The barefoot board is ideal for indoor cross-training. I also have an inflatable disc from a previous board I’ve been using for more static squat workouts, all while watching TV! :D The board itself is a wonderful light, but solid build and weight, I am 6,1” and 195 pounds. I got both the small and large ball, but have only inflated the small ball and tried balancing briefly to date. My only issue (after taking over 3 months to get it) is the ball is difficult to deflate. So be careful inflating, else your balance drill will go from 0 to double black diamond in a few seconds lol.
I’ve been using a basic lateral balance board for quite some time to improve my snowboarding skills. The skillboard’s 360 degrees of motion really sets it apart. It has shown me where I’m drastically deficient with my balance, body mechanics, and muscle memory. Body squats on this thing are legit. Love it! The reason for the 4 star review is simply the quality of the ball. Maybe it’s cuz I am a relatively large guy but the ball has stretched and is now ellipsoidal. It seems to affect how the ball rolls underfoot. Perhaps that makes it more challenging...
So far I love this thing. I got the large ball and the board without grip tape and I'm glad I did. The board is slick, but my bare feet grip just fine. I found that at a middle psi the ball doesn't really roll well, and although harder, it's more predictable and fun at the higher psi. I can't give numbers on the psi because the included pressure gauge doesn't fit the adapter, so it's essentially garbage. All in all, I'm really stoked and have had a blast on this thing. My legs and core feel like they've been worked after only a few minutes.
I am a board sports enthusiasts. 37 years old and skateboard a few times a week at the local park. So I can tell you for sure this thing is a work out. I have several other balance boards. But none come close to the skill board. Only fault I have found is in the ball. Once inflated, the are yiu put the needle in looks likenit is going to come off along with I already have some threads on the outside of the ball. Very minor issues, just worth mentioning. Overall the Skill Board is amazing and a must have if you want to challenge yourself
I’m having a great time on my Skill Board. Since I have Bongo Board and slack line experience, I picked it up pretty quick, and now three weeks in, I’ve noticed significant gains in my comfort and performance on long distance road rides. I’m really looking forward to the same gains during backcountry ski hiking.
My experience so far has been great! Being a dancer and a movement enthusiast I really enjoy the challenge that comes with the Skill Board. I’ve been observing athletes to see the variety of ways the board can be used and it’s never ending. You can really get creative with it. I’ve never been able to skateboard/snowboard/surf and it’s so nice to have found a board that fits me and my lifestyle. The fact that I can bring it wherever I want, indoors or outdoors, and always keep improving my skills is a big plus. I will definitely be using this for a long time and I can recommend it to anyone who likes a challenge.
Really fun, challenging, and a great workout. Having fun using this as a screen break from my now remote work - gets the heart pumping, and helps improve my balance for the sports I'm passionate about (mtn biking). One issue with the items received - the air pressure gauge had some plastic-like substance on the threads, I couldn't even screw it into the pump without it instantly feeling like I was cross-threading it. Had to scrape out the threads with a knife and tool before I could get it connected properly - coming with some teflon tape or similar pre-applied would be better, or even having it pre-assembled with an appropriate box.
