On the 8th day of Christmas Indo Board Man showed me

The Kicktail Pro!

IRM 190

Check out Indo Board Man’s video about the Kicktail Pro

The Kicktail uses the original roller and is used by advance riders who wake skate, snow board, wake board, kite surf or do any other board sport.

It is also a favorite of many Indo Board certified trainers like Jim Leo

Pro snowboarder Eric Jackson trains on the Indo Board


Eric ‘E-Jack” Jackson is one of the best freeride snowboarders in the world.  Last year E-Jack injured his foot and had to spend a great deal of time off the mountain rehabilitating his injury.  This off-season E-Jack worked tirelessly with his fitness trainer Paul Hiniker at Frogs Fitness in Encinitas, CA to make sure that his entire body is stable and strong enough to avoid future injuries.  In this video Paul explains why the Indo Board Balance Trainer has become his favorite piece of  equipment when working with professional snowboarders and surfers.  Watch as E-Jack tries out his latest Indo Board set-up: the Indo Board Gignate cushion with the Indo Mini Pro deck on top.  This setup was chosen by Paul Hiniker as it allows snowboarders to strength train in a stance that is as close as possible to their riding stance.  As Paul explains in the video, stability and strength training on an unstable surface is the most important aspect of the fitness programs he prescribes to the professional snowboarders and surfers that he works with.

We recently caught up with highly sought-after fitness trainer Paul Hiniker during a photo shoot for an upcoming Surfline Health and Fitness feature.  Paul trains many of actions sports top athletes including professional surfer Taylor Knox and professional snowboarders Eric Jackson and Mads Jonnson.  Paul’s main focus with all of his athletes is building a balanced, stable, strong and flexible body.  In order to create this type of body a great deal of the training that Paul recommends is done using unstable devices.  This helps simulate the type of environment that surfers, snowboarders, skateboarders and other board sports athletes will encounter during training and competition.  This training focuses on making sure the athletes learn to maintain the proper posture, stability and balance while performing compound, sport-specific movements on these unstable devices.  Paul’s goal is to better prepare the athletes for the chaotic, unstable environment that they experience in board sports training and competition.  In these photos Paul is performing kettlebell stability exercises using the IndoFLO Gigante’ cushion with the Indo Pro deck on top.  This Indo Board setup allows the user to simulate the instability and the proper posture and stance used in surfing and snowboarding.
