Indo Board Man Brings Out The Mega Indo Board


This weekend, after the cold front in Florida finally subsided and the weather was nice again, Indo Board Man showed off the legendary, one of a kind, Mega Indo Board. This is a Balance Board on steroids! The Roller is 36 inches in diameter used with a custom made 10 foot plank. Good to get your Pirate on by walking the plank!! The Mega Indo Board is the ultimate Longboard Indo Board.  This is in Indo Board Man’s personal collection and is only brought out for special occasions.

Indo Board Man’s friend from Indianapolis, team rider and Indo Board Brand Ambassador Heather Thomas shot the video of the Indo Board Man showing off his awesome skills. This was happening while Heather’s, husband Will, stood by taking it all in because he was keen to try to ride it himself.

Indo Board Man demonstrates his ability to walk the full length of the giant board. Indo Board Man also shows his control and throws in some lunges at the top of the board. The roller itself weighs over a hundred pounds. It takes a lot of strength to get this giant roller to move.

In the next video, Will Baker decides to try his moves out on the Mega Indo Board

 As you can see from the video, it takes a running start for Will to get enough momentum to move the giant roller. This board only gets to come out for special guests who crave the rush of being in a precarious situation!.

The Mega Indo Board roller has a few other uses as well. You can have a person hanging out in the roller as someone rides to add even more difficulty or you can take the roller for a spin by anchoring yourself inside. It’s quite a ride!

While the Mega Indo Board is one of a kind, if you want to get better at walking the board and cross stepping, you should check out the Indo Pro.

This is the Surf Classic edition which the print is made to look like an Old School Longboard Surfboard

How Do You Indo Board?

Here at Indo Board Balance Trainer, we love our fans! And our fans take their love of riding the Indo Board Balance Board to the extreme! We love when our fans send us video or tag us on our instagram @indoboard! Let’s take a look at our awesome fans and some of the cool photos and videos that have been sent in to us over the last few weeks!



Team Rider Leo Oppenheim takes Indo Boarding to the extreme by counter balancing on his Indo Board Original on a brick ledge! Leo exhibits amazing skill and concentration while holding this difficult position! This is an advanced Indo Board maneuver and I definitely would not recommend trying this at home unless you have great skills and strength.


Leo also sent us a second shot of him and his friend Josh, Mark Rowe. Josh is on Leo’s shoulders! What an amazing feat!



Andrew Hopgood has some serious skill as shown by this video. He uses a skate deck on our roller. He juggles, shows off his fantastic balance and ends the video with a back flip!



Brian Twardus practices strengthening his core with the L-Sit and then throws a basket. He is an awesome trainer at @the_auburn_fit.



Waterski and Wakeboard pro Nikolas Plytas uses not one but two Indo Boards on top of each other and shows his riding skills!


And I can’t not show off one of our favorite young riders, Trinity Lewis. This kid has crazy balance and loves filing all the tricks he has mastered on his Indo Board.

The 2018 Winter Olympic Athletes Secret Weapon – Part 1

The 2018 Winter Olympics are just around the corner. Several winter Olympians, including Lindsey Vonn, use the Indo Board as part of their training regimen. The US Olympic Snowboard Team uses the Indo Board as a warmup tool before competing.

Lindsey has consistently used the Indo Balance Board since her formative training with the Vail Ski and Snowboard Club as a kid. More recently she has used it to help her rehab from severe injuries which lead to her primary training to get her back Indo competitive form.

In this post, Lindsey Vonn is working on core strength as well as her upper body to rehab her injured arm. Try playing catch while on the Indo Board and see how adding in an extra movement boosts your workout while having fun!

The Indo Balance Board helps dramatically strengthen weak or injured ankles and knees. Sprained ankles are a leading injury among skiers and snowboarders. Doing some relatively easy ankle strengthening exercises using the Indo Board Balance Trainer can help you prevent injuries.

 Lindsey is using the Indo Board Mini Pro in this photo. The Mini Pro was developed working with professional wakeboarders and snowboarders who wanted a fun indoor training activity. The broad reach and importance the Indo Board Balance Trainer has for balance training across all board orientated sports and all sports activity is the perfect fit.

Ski Magazine even recorded a bit of her Balance Training workout. You can check it out here.

3 ways to start off on your New Years Resolutions with Indo Board!

You can start your year off right and tackle those New Years Resolutions with the Indo Board Balance Board.

The easiest way of making your resolutions pay off with the Indo Board is to simply start using it! 

The journey to getting fit with the help of the Indo Board starts with working on your core strength. Indo Board Man demonstrates the basics in this video.

The easiest way to start out with the roller is to hold on to something like a counter, couch, or chair and practice not letting the deck touch the ground. It will take a little time to get used to the motion but you are already getting a work out! The learning curve is usually very quick and lots of FUN.


Use your Indo FLO at your desk.

Don’t have a lot of free time to exercise? Stuck at the office long hours? Why not bring your Indo Board Balance Board and IndoFLO cushion to the office!

Indo Board Man stands on the Indo Rocker FLO while he attends to the daily operations of Indo Board.

You can start by standing on the IndoFLO for a few minutes out of every hour. Maybe try standing while you do a specific task like checking emails or on a conference call. The IndoFLO makes getting a workout in the office a snap! You will burn up to 120 extra calories an hour as well as improve your overall posture and realize increased productivity.


Keep it up! 

Achieving a goal is much easier if it’s a fun and engaging activity! It can seem almost effortless when all you have to do is continue to use the Indo Board Balance Trainer! Start off by riding the board 10 minutes a day and then increase it! Ride the Indo Board while you watch sports, your favorite show or playing the new Star Wars Battlefront. Practice makes perfect and riding the Indo Board daily will help you improve your overall core fitness and leg strength. Check out our youtube channel

Once you are able to keep the board from touching the ground, go to the next step! Add more difficulty. Grab some barbells or a kettle bell and do some lifts while on your board. Below are several examples of exercises you can do with weights on an Indo Board Balance Board. Also don’t forget to do pushups and planks for an excellent upper body workout!

Remember Life is all about Balance!

The 12 Days of Indo Board – Day 12!

On the 12th Day of Christmas Indo Board Man showed me, exercises you can do with your Indo Board!

Included with your Indo Board Training Pack or Indo FLO package is this handy poster detailing exercises you can do on your Indo Balance Board.

This poster is double sided and includes exercises on both the roller and the Indo FLO.

The poster is a great starting point in setting up a core strengthening and balance board work out routine.


Another resource you can utilize, is our YouTube Channel.

There is a multitude of videos with exercise routines and demos.

In the video below, Indo Board Man demonstrates the Indo Balance Board. This is one of the first videos Indo Board Man created to show how to use the Indo Board as a surf trainer.


Over the years the Indo Board has grown, beyond a fun way to help you improve your surfing or board sports, to an all around fitness balance trainer. Ideal for anyone looking to improve their overall functional fitness level. The Indo Board Balance Trainer is great for all levels of fitness while being used to increase strength in both the upper body and lower body along with the benefit of a stronger core.

Arthur Hsu has a three part training series using the Indo Board. You can find all three on our channel! Lets take a look at the first video in the series.
