    Balance Board Training for Skiing and Snowboarding

    Are you just starting out snowboarding or skiing or are you looking for a way to get even better?

    Either way, balancing yourself while in motion on an ever changing terrain is what snowboarding and skiing is all about. Without the skill to balance yourself on the equipment while in motion, edging and performing heel - toe transfers you will have difficulty becoming a skilled skier or snowboarder. At a minimum, basic balance training will increase the following regardless of your current physical abilities:

    • Core balance
    • Core musculature strengthening and recruitment
    • Proprioception and special awareness

    Vew-do balance boards will get you ready for the slopes or the terrain park with more than just basic balance training. With its maple riding deck, sub-deck rail system and tapered rock, Vew-Do balance boards will have you feeling more and more comfortable with the following skiing and snowboarding skills.

    • Heel - toe edging
    • Lateral edging
    • Footwork
    • Weight transferring and stimulating your body's propriceptors
    • Improving special awareness and in-air stability
    • Increasing proper take-off and landing techniques

    Below is a list of skiing and snowboarding exercises you can perform using Vew-Do Balance Boards to help you master these sports.

    For Balance:

    • Lateral balance training
    • Vertical balance training
    • Heel/Toe balance training
    • Static balance training
    • Perturbation training

    For Strength:

    • Dips
    • Squats
    • Lunges
    • Push-ups
    • Plyometrics
    • Isometrics

    Balance is a trainable skill. It's simple. Get better balance you'll learn and get better at skiing and snowboarding. You can hardly experience the fun, excitement and freedom of snow sports without good balance

    Snowboarding and skiing requires a balance progression beginning with basic balance and advancing through edging, turning, increased and eventually grinding, aerials like 360's and 540's.

    While nothing can replace the wind in your face and the snow under your feet, balance training on a Vew-Do balance board is fun and the next best thing to having a snowy slope in your living room.

    Customer Review for Ubalance

    I've been using my vew do flow board everyday since it arrived. Ubalance was the cheapest I could find after loads of researching for the best boards and uk stockists. Mark was very helpful and it arrived quickly. There's loads more exercises than I thought, including press ups, squats and side to side plank. I would highly recommend these boards and Ubalance.
