Alex Schlopy

Professional Skier

Alex was born and raised in Park City, UT. His dad was a kicker in the NFL and his mom was an Olympic downhill ski racer. They put Alex on skis at age 2, then into gymnastics at age 8, and at age 12 he began to combine the two following the sport of free skiing. It was love at first sight. He began competing almost immediately and loved pushing his limits. He was the winner of a gold medal at the 2011 Winter X Games in the big air contest. The following week, he won the gold medal in slopestyle at the 2011 FIS Freestyle World Ski Championships. He's done well, and plans to continue pushing himself in all aspects of life!

    The Skill Board is a game-changing balance board that will help you build functional balance. Challenge your core strength and balance in a full 360° range of motion to deliver incremental balance training that scales with your skill. Because the Skill Board balances on an inflatable ball, riders control the difficulty themselves by inflating or deflating the ball, ensuring it’s never too tough or too easy.

    The smooth board was designed to be used barefoot, while the grip board is meant to be used with shoes. The grip tape can be a little too rough for some riders' bare feet. The bundle package comes with a smooth board and stick-it-yourself grip tape, so you can decide which option is best for you.



    Included in the Beginner to Pro Bundle is everything you’ll need to master the Skill Board, even if you have no experience on a balance board. Start with the stationary Wobble Cushion, which will let you get a feel for the Skill Board’s 360° range of motion. Once you’re comfortable with how the board moves, up the ante with the Small Ball with low PSI. Keep challenging yourself on the Small Ball, and, with practice, you’ll be a pro before you know it. 

    The bundle also includes a drawstring travel bag for improving your balance on the go and our Floor Savers which will help you ride on hard surfaces without damaging the board or flooring.
