Indo Man Hunter Joslin works with Darrick Doerner. With eyes closed, Darrick makes his proprioception more acute. Hunter demonstrates Indo Board tricks and conveys some of his Indo Board knowledge that directly translates to better surfing; snowboard tips.
We are stoked to be working with one of Surfing’s truly great Watermen, Darrick Doerner, who understands the real value of Indo Board Balance Training! Thanks for your Aloha, Darrick!
Indo Board Enthusiast, Todd Aimer, 4th degree black belt and former pro surfer, loves training on the Indo Board and uses it religiously in his martial art studios. In this video, he trains Dr. Stephanie Green. Tip: Unlike Dr. Green, who performs this exercise excellently, place your fingers on top the Indo Board to avoid having your fingers pinched!
Upon completion of the Indo Board Continuing Education Workshop with Master Trainer Rocky Synder in Santa Cruz, California, I asked Amy if she would like to try some yoga poses on an unstable surface. Enthusiastically she exclaimed, “Yes!, That’s what’s been missing in yoga! But how do you create the instability?” I quickly pulled my SUP board out off the van and proceeded to set it on top of 2 IndoFLO GIGANTE cushions, one under the nose and one placed under the tail. This is the Indo Board Surfing Yoga set up. Many yoga practitioners have recently discovered an SUP board creates a big enough platform to allow a wide variety of yoga movements and postures on water which is naturally unstable. Now, this can be done on dry land and Amy had lots of fun “Getting INDO It!”

Todd Durkin, owner of the Fitness Quest 10 training facility in San Diego, CA puts himself through a serious workout using the Indo Board and the TRX Suspension Training system. Todd and his staff are experimenting with how Indo Board Balance Trainers will benefit their clients in a number of different applications including; functional balance training, proprioceptive conditioning, improving joint stability, reducing injuries, and increasing overall core strength. After watching Todd put his clients through their workouts it is no wonder why athletes such as Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, LaDainian Tomlinson, Quentin Jammer, Reggie Bush, Carson Palmer and many others trust Todd with their fitness training.
There is no shortage of scientific studies that confirm that proprioceptive neuromuscular training prevents sports-related injuries but a recent review of seven of these “high-quality studies” further confirms the evidence. The specific type of proprioceptive neuromuscular training varies in the studies but they all typically included movements and exercises that can be performed on Indo Board products. This includes, using balance devices, wobble boards, core stability exercises, strength training and agility training just to name a few.
