A while back we hooked up Sean Croxton at UndergroundWellness.com with an Indo Board so he could see what it’s all about. Here Sean and Josh take their Indo Board and a few other pieces of functional training equipment and hit the beach in San Diego.
Indo Board Balance Trainer
Every summer Ocean Beach Surf and Skate, Ocean Experience Surf School and Indo Board partner with the San Diego Chapter of the Braille Institute to give visually impaired youth the chance to learn to surf. While we have been involved in introducing many differnt types people to the experience of riding waves, nothing quite compares to this. We are stoked that the Indo Board plays a crucial role in helping these visually impaired kids understand the basics of balance and prepares them for an experience that they will never forget. The surf instructors used the full range of Indo Board products before the surfers entered the water so that they simulate the instability that they would expereince once they were in the water and on their surfboards. The Indo Board Original (deck with roller underneath) and the Gigante Cushion (large cushion that is placed under a surfboard) played a critical role in helping the instructors assess important variables such as balance, posture and stability before the surfers entered the surf. This translated into great successes once the kids entered the water. Seeing the faces of kids, most of whom had never been in the ocean – much less on a surfboard, made this an incredibly gratifying experience for all involved. To learn more about the San Diego Chapter of the Braille Institute and the amazing work they do with visually impared youth, visit their Facebook Page.
Our good friends at United Studios Of Self Defense (USSD) use the Indo Board on a daily basis. Some days it is used more seriously than others. This quick video features 2nd Degree Black Belt (and accomplished skateboarder) Mike Giannicchi having a little fun on the Indo Boards. Mike works along side Sensei Todd Aimer, a 4th Degree Belt that has been studying Martial Arts for over 18 years. Todd successfully runs and teaches at two USSD training centers located in Huntington Beach, CA and Dana Point, CA . Todd is also a professional surfer and Indo Board Team Rider.
