When you ride your surfboard it moves in all directions, rocking and sliding over the water.
Rail to rail (toe to heel) control is just as vital as fore to aft (foot to foot) for board control.
CoolBoard is the only surf balance board that gives you full balance control in all directions, both rock and slide – foot to foot and toe to heel.
Let’s face it, most of us spend very little time actually up on our surfboards, so some surf specific balance training can go a long way. Improve between sessions, save on costly surf lessons, be ready to progress and enjoy!
Beware of lesser ‘surf balance boards’, ‘surf trainers’ and wobble boards with limited movement. Roller balance boards only slide from foot to foot – no toe to heel. Wobble boards only rock, no slide – just like our Easy Start Disc, but not as good.
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 surf trainer 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 same aspects of strength haven’t been focused on, so if you’re recovering from injury, or think you have but occasionally feel a twinge… spend time on a CoolBoard to give your body the best chance…
