The Beginning of Your Destiny:

Our most popular board size is available for smaller feet and stances. The Freestyle Starter brings the beauty of movement and athleticism to you. Express your ride style with smooth controlled turns, graceful momentum transfers or pure powerful ambition. Either take it slow and steady or fire up your muscles and set yourself apart.

Large Comfort Zone:

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.

Balance on This:

3" Mini ball is quick, responsive and requires fine tuning of your movements. With little board tilt and a ton of forward and backward ride space, your board control will always be challenged to stay level. Staying centered is no easy feat with this Mini ball. Combine both balls under the board for the double pivot system for skill progression.

5" Small ball gets you up and off the ground and makes the big sweeping turns look easy. With enough space for forward and backward motion this combo is sure to let you ride in big style. Large tilt angle for starting and stopping also makes upper body moves very fun and challenging. The is the best combo with the extended board size.

5" Half Balls allow you to create your own wobble or rocker board. Perfect for skill progression with lower body balance and upper body complex moves.

Create your own unique combo that meets your needs for training. Add balls and half balls for variety. Features an adjustable rail that can be lengthened or shortened in 4" inch sections. A great board choice for those who will grow with their board and want to practice a wide range of stances.

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.

Basic Combos:
  1. Rocker Board: 2 Half Balls
  2. Wobble Board: 1 Half Ball
  3. Single Pivot Board: 1 Half Ball and 1 Ball

5 of 5 Great Buying Experience with Si Board January 24, 2021
Reviewer: Kaitlin Marks-Dubbs from East Norriton, PA United States  
Elysia emailed with me about my current routine goals, talked through a few options, and made sure I had the what I needed without upselling me.

I'm petite, and the Freestyle gives me space to work in a variety of stances. I did not expect to use the half spheres much since I own wobble and roller-style boards, but they are handy for isolating specific muscles.

The one thing I miss from my roller board is some deeper angles, especially as a double pivot, but I think this would improve with five-inch balls (and to be entirely fair, Elysia gave me a heads up about this before I finalized my order). Something to try in the future.

TLDR: Elysia Tsai can help to find the tool that best fits you: your size, your fitness level, your injuries, and your goals. Having both full spheres and halves means I have a variety of combinations that fit my current abilities, as well as a lot of latitude to grow.

5 of 5 Great balance and rehab tool August 26, 2020
Reviewer: Ben B from San Diego, CA United States  
So excited for how well the board has worked out.  Primarily purchased the board for surf training for myself and kids.  Turns out it has done wonders for correcting my foot placement, stance, strength from bunion surgery several years ago.  It naturally changed how I placed my foot and balance within a week!  I am finally recovering my overall balance and correct foot structure.  Love it!!!!!

5 of 5 Balance November 30, 2015
Reviewer: Paul Gonzales from Lynnwood, WA United States  
I thought I had good balance until I got on this thing, I still have to hang on to something but less and less each time. Great idea I must say it looks a lot easier in the video.

5 of 5 Loving My Freestyle! July 20, 2015
Reviewer: Jason Shields from Anderson, IN United States  
I've been wanting to purchase a SI Board every since I saw them on YouTube over a year ago. I have cerebral palsy and am a very active person who loves to constantly improve my balancing and coordination and the Freestyle Starter is perfect for it!

The 5 in 1 package came with everything I needed to start with immediately and I use my board every day! One of the most impressive features of this board is the quality of the materials and craftsmanship that SI Boards places into the board itself.

It is so thick and sturdy, yet light enough for me to practically take it wherever I go. I plan on taking mine into some of the therapy sessions I use with special needs students.

The balls and half-balls that come with this package rock (literally)! They are the sturdiest things I've ever handled and can take a rough beating from a hard workout. I plan on purchasing additional sizes in the near future.

Thanks Elysia and gang!
