The 12 Days of Indo Board – Day 7!

On the 7th Day of Christmas Indo Board Man showed me

The Gigante Cushion!

This Gigante is quite a bit bigger than the IndoFLO cushion. 24 inches versus 14 inches in diameter.

The Gigante cushion adds a very fluid movement and 360 degrees of instability (like you are on the water) under the board. The Gigante cushion is incredibly versatile due to the ability to easily change the amount of air in the cushion to completely change the range of instability you experience. There is no pump required as the Gigante cushion is mouth inflatable and take less than 5 seconds to change the inflation level.

There are several ways of using the Gigante cushion. Wake Board, Wake and Wake Surfers like using the Gigante with the Indo Rocker deck to help them train. SUP riders and surfers enjoy using the Gigante under an Original Indo Board to help simulate the instability encountered when SUPping and Surfing.

Indo Board Man even used an Original on top of the Gigante to train the late football great Junior Seau.

You can choose to use one or two Gigante’s under your surfboard to help you simulate surfing or SUP!

Indo Board Man shows you how to use the Gigante under your surf board or paddle board in this video

You can buy a single Gigante or grab the SUP pack which comes with 2 Gigantes to put under your SUP.

Indo Board Man also uses the Gigante and a weight to train. No Board required for this workout he and Suzie Cooney did.

Indo Board Man and Arthur Hsu demonstrate workouts you can do using the Gigante and the Pro Board (Pro with cushion)

The Gigante cushion is one of the most versatile training aides!

 

Have a Balanced Day

Julie Roach, Indo Board SUP/Yoga Instructor

A few days ago, we had a great time Stand Up Paddle Boarding and practicing Yoga on our SUP’s with Julie Roach of www.myyogagirl.com.


Julie writes, “Living in Central Florida all my life, water being on both sides and in between, my sport and passion is movement with nature. As a Yoga instructor and personal trainer, I love to train, teach yoga and just generally be outside. Just over a year ago, I was lucky enough to have an opportunity to start teaching yoga on top of a SUP. .. HEAVEN!
Passionate about stability, balance and mindfulness, I can practice no matter what the wind, water or weather conditions might be. I’m on the water as much as possible, but use the Gigante cushions when I can’t. I position the cushions under the nose & tail of my board, allowing me to have a challenging, stable workout everyday. My yoga practice and strength have improved considerably, and it’s a SUPload of fun right in my own backyard (or living room! )Check it out for yourself . If you have a SUP Board or not, the cushions are the Indo Board GIGIANTE Cushions, and fun to play around with!”
Julie paddles and teaches yoga on the beautiful Winter Park Chain of Lakes in Central Florida. She instructs smaller private groups in basic paddle instruction, yoga and fitness classes in the quiet coves and lakes in and around Orlando. Julie is a Florida native and is a certified yoga instructor and lifeguard. She has created a new board for standup paddle yoga & fitness with Suplove TM, to be introduced at Surf Expo this fall. Look for her in the Suplove booth September 7-10th. She is also a Lululemon Brand Ambassador leading fun & funky events on the water coast to coast! H2yO Classes and private class information can be found on her website: www.H2yO.biz or email: yogagirljulieroach@gmail.com
