INDO BOARD Man Hosts Dinner Party – Mega Indo Board Returns!

Indo Board - Life is About Balance

Return of the Mega Indo Board

This week to celebrate Indo Board Man’s Son in Law’s birthday, he hosted a small dinner party featuring certified Authentic Wagyu Beef and Exotic side dishes expertly prepared by Top Chef candidate Chef Nico. All this was accompanied with some monster Red Wines from Indo Board Man’s wine cellar. Before master chef Nico cooked Wagyu NY Strip, he and professional Fly Boarder, Connor Brondes, showed off their skills on some of Indo Board Man’s private Indo Board collection. The boys were thrilled with the chance to hone their Longboard surfing skills with coaching their form, carefully explained by Indo Board Man. They were shown the importance of attaining efficiency and style in their cross step movements. This happens when careful attention is focused on the correct posture with head and shoulders properly aligned above the hips and feet which ultimately produces fluid motion across the board.

Flyboarder Connor Brondes also joined in on the fun.

Connor showed off his newly learned cross stepping skills.

But the 15 inch high cross stepper was just the warm up, soon the Mega Indo Board made an appearance.

The Mega Indo Board has a 10 foot board and the roller is 36 inches in diameter.

After the fun on the Mega Indo Board, it was time to cook the Wagyu NY Strip steak cooked and bathed in the awesome flavor maker duck fat! They really worked up an appetite!

Indo Board Man Brings Out The Mega Indo Board

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

The 12 Days of Indo Board – Day 10!

On the 11th Day of Christmas Indo Board Man is keeping it simple and showing our #1 best selling balance board, the

Original Natural Indo Board.

This is the board that started everything! 19 years ago Indo Board Man decided to pursue his dream and created the business Indo Board Balance Trainer. Here we are almost 20 years later and the Indo Original Natural is still the top seller.

Indo Board Man introducing the Original Indo Board.

The idea was an indoor surfing trainer and he coined the phrase “If you can’t go Outdo, gotta go Indo.” He originally marketed the Indo Board to help people who participated in board sports train in the comfort of their homes. Throughout the years the uses have expanded to include fitness training for virtually every sport there is, focusing on core strength and balance training. The benefits of using an Indo Board to train helps with injury prevention and in the case of injury then as a rehab tool.

The first video shows how to get started using the Indo Board

The second video highlights various balance board workouts you can do with the Indo Board.

The Indo Board has been used to train Olympic Athletes such as swimmer Aaron Piersol and Archer Jake Kaminsky.

Here is a video of Jake practicing on his Indo Balance Board before the 2012 Summer Olympics where the US Team won the Silver medal.

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!
