    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.
