A popular board for younger kids and parents to share. The large board size gives you plenty of room to stand and ride like you are on the Original Board. The smaller rail gives smaller feet and smaller riders the opportunity to use the same board without feeling overstretched or unable to control the board. All Around Training For Everybody: With the Starter rail you have a wide stance range to develop your skill set. Ride directly over the bolt holes or move your feet out another 6" inches to the ends. Plenty of space for upper and full body exercises with a solid platform to land on. Ride on two balls or half balls for an endless amount of fun and exercise progression. A great economic tool for training on the go, outdoor use and multiple users with variety of experience. Balance On These: Create your own unique combo that suits your needs. Add Balls and Half Balls for your training. Featuring an adjustable rail so you can grow with your board. A great option for young kids with smaller feet who quickly outgrow their clothes! 3" Mini Balls: These are the smallest Balls and are very quick and responsive. They will keep you close to the ground and give you the sensation of floating on air. Beginners should start with these balls. If using on an extremely padded surface or deep carpet these balls will be absorbed and limit your ride motion. Use two balls to create a double pivot board and then progress your skills to one ball.5" Small Balls: This size Ball is the best with this board size. Adult riders will get the most challenge, tilt and range of motion with this ball. 5" Half Balls: These small Half Balls are the perfect beginner size that will create a challenging surface. Perfect for toddlers and kids progressing to this board. Use two for a basic rocker board or one for a wobble board tilting in all directions. Half balls allow you to progress from the basics of balance or multi-task in complex motions as you progress.6.5" Half Balls: This size Half Ball gives you a lot of tilt for experienced riders who need more range of motion. You will be able to rotate the balance board better with this size. Use a 3" Mini Ball and 6.5" Half Ball for the Thrasher and Rock and Roll combos. Use a 5" Small Ball and 6.5" Half Ball for the Big Drop combo.Rail Extensions: All Starter Boards feature a urethane rail that is pieced together. You can put in middle rail extensions to increase the length by 4" or 8". The rail can also be placed on a larger board. A great way to adjust and reuse your balance board as you gain in skill and height. Extend your rail with 4" or 8" Extension sets. The 8" Extension will give you a rail length of 28" which is the same length as the Freestyle Original board. The 8" Extensions are the best option. If you add the 4" Extensions your rail will be off center when using the existing rail holes. This creates a unique ride over the tail end of the board. To extend your rail you will need to drill a few extra holes for the Extensions. Elysia's Notes: This popular board combines the best of both worlds. A medium board size for a wide range of stances and a small rail for smaller riders. At trade shows when an entire family shows up this is the board they feel find the most useful for everybody. Parents can stay active and kids can lean to develop their athletic ability. I love working with beginners on this board because I know I can take them through upper body, full body and lower body coordination without excessive range of motion.

Exceptional resistance to friction, oils, solvents, UV, extreme temperatures and is odor free. Higher strength and durability compared to rubber, plastic or vinyl. Construction: Made as one complete unit and avoids seams or piecing together. Balls are perfectly round. Balls will not break open or wear with repetitive slamming. Texture: Slight tacky feel with grip bumps for texture. Easily grips the board and ground surfaces for safety. Will not slip on carpet or tile floors compared to wood or plastic rollers. Hardness: Very stiff with slight compression. Best described as the hardness of a lacrosse ball. Not as hard or slick as a bowling ball. Rebound Speed: The balls rebound back to you as hard and fast as you throw them. In many cases, users are caught off guard at the speed of the rebound. If the ball has a second bounce with spin, the rebound is even faster than the fist bounce. Rebound Heights: Will return about 70% of its height from a still drop. When slamming on the ground the rebound can be as high as 3 times the drop height. When slamming against the wall the rebound is extremely forceful compared to an air filled ball. When slamming on the ground and into a corner the rebound will easily double your height. Rolling And Bouncing: Due to the solid mass and high rebound, the balls continue to roll very far. Heavier balls carry more momentum and require more muscular control. The balls will continue to bounce off of surfaces like a pin ball machine. Size And Weight: As the ball size increases the weight increases. The weight may feel heavier when throwing the ball due to the high rebound. Solid Surface: The balls need a solid surface to properly rebound. The balls will not rebound on grass. Always use a solid and smooth surface such as concrete or asphalt. Avoid throwing against brick, plaster, wood or plastic walls.
