CoolBoard was originally developed as a surf balance trainer - and it's the best you'll get due to our unique and patent protected movement. Since then we've been stoked to see how much good it also does for your surf fitness, pop-up training and injury protection.
"...having not surfed for a whole year, I was better than before! - how, by using my CoolBoard."
Proper board training - balance in all directions at once - like you do on the water
When you ride your surfboard it moves in all directions, rocking and sliding. Fore to aft (foot to foot) control is vital, rail to rail (toe to heel) is crucial for your turns.
CoolBoard is the only UK balance board that gives you full balance control in all directions, both rock and slide – foot to foot and toe to heel.
So if your sport uses a board nothing else will give you the control that CoolBoard training will give you.
Beware of lesser balance boards and wobble boards that limit movement, these either rock with no slide, or only slide from foot to foot – the easy bit! You'll need our full patent protected movement
For the experienced – hone your skills between shreds... Beginners – get the best head start
CoolBoard will also increase your strength and endurance, meaning you can push it further for longer... so you can hit it big and find it easier to keep technique as you get tired. see more in tabs
So next time the conditions are right – don’t play catch-up – be ready!
Not just about balance...
Your core connects all your major body parts and is where all your movement begins. Your joint stabilising structures give you the strength to control and move a limb (arm or leg) with accuracy. So having strong joint stabilising structures and core will allow you to move your body with more strength, power and accuracy – or to put in another way – SHRED HARDER FOR LONGER!
Instability training works these often under-developed areas of fitness, and because CoolBoard offers more instability than other trainers (Bosu, wobble boards, other balance boards, swiss and gym balls, foam pads, etc) its way more effective – you must react to every little movement, constantly working all those little important muscles.
Just balancing on CoolBoard balance board fires up most muscles from your toes to your chest, including the all important joint stabilisers and core... our other exercises will allow you to further target these as well as working your upper body.

Research has shown that a weak core and/or joint stabilising structures are major contributions to injuries – having a bulging bicep doesn’t mean you can control it! Prepare with CoolBoard and you’ll be less likely to suffer an injury.
Re-injury is common when these aspects of strength haven’t been focussed on, so if you’re recovering from injury, or think you have but occasionally feel a twinge... spend a bit of time on a CoolBoard to give your body the best chance...
