The Complete Family Balance Board:

Our most popular board size is available for smaller feet, stances and the whole family. 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" 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.

Get Started Here: The Freestyle Starter Basic Package is a great set up for learning better balance. You can create 3 different board types using the Ball and Half Ball combos. When you are ready to progress in skill you can always add Balls and Half Balls.

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.

5 of 5 Amazing support and high quality product. February 5, 2021
Reviewer: Scott Tetz from Spokane, WA United States  
I bought this board for my fiancee who loves it. It is very well made and worth the money. I have total confidence in the product and plan to buy many more down the road to upgrade features and difficulty as our skill advances.  Elysia was very helpful when I was picking out the board, I appreciate the dedication that is reflected in her work.

5 of 5 One Month of Use Review August 11, 2020
Reviewer: Steve S from Ponte Vedra Beach, FL United States  
I have experience with other balance boards and I have to say the Si Boards are by far the best!  I've owned my Freestyle Starter for one month now and use it everyday.  You can't help yourself it's just some much fun to ride.  I got mine in blue and the photos on the website don't do these colors justice. The board is a beautiful shade of blue with nice texturing for grip.  Not only is it a high-quality product, but also a piece of art.  Working from home, I keep it next to my desk and jump on it for 5 minute sessions throughout the day.  This is a great core workout and really improves your balance.   And Elysia Tsai gives amazing personal service.  She kept me informed throughout the build and shipping process with personal notes about the products I was purchasing.  This company is truly special and creates amazing products! I could not not be happier!

5 of 5 Great starter for my wife and I. March 9, 2018
Reviewer: Jason Longoria from United States  
My wife and I love this product. It facilitares an awesome core (and much more) workout that is FUN. SI Boards are now one of my family’s go to things to do. I also showed it to friends and they loved it as well. Just be careful when you first try using the ball. You have to work up to it...

5 of 5 Perfect intro to the art of balance training May 16, 2016
Reviewer: Chris C from NJ United States  
This is the board that started it all for me.  

After a few days of working with the board it changed the way I walk, ran, and squatted.  I would even argue that the use of this board changed my mental outlook on fitness as a whole.

The coolest benefit has been the development of my calves/shins.   As a thin guy, the lower part of my legs would never develop regardless of the amount of time I spent training them.   This board changed that for me.

I use the Freestyle Starter along with the Surf Original for my pre and post workout routine.
