Hit The Slopes With Confidence:

The Powder Starter offers a unique balance trainer for your off season training. The wide ends stabilize the board while the skinny middle moves fast. This is perfect for learning how to 360 and turn your board as you float through the air. The unique board shape gives you extreme tilt and will strengthen your ankles and calves. A great board for beginners and kids learning how to master the slopes.

Create Your Full Body Training Program:

Keep a narrow stance similar to snowboarding or get stretched out into a wide squat and feel your legs burn as you grab the board. You have 9" of extra space on each end to find your balance. Perfect for a wide lunge or squat stance with the Half Balls. Upper body and full body moves are possible with the larger board size. You can train your entire body and stay fit all year long.

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.

6.5" Half Ball:
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.

Elysia's Notes:

The Powder Starter is a fun balance board. It is light and fast and gives you a lot of forward and backward motion. It is perfect for kids learning how to balance. With the wide range in stance you can stay narrow and work on quick core control. Use the half balls and change up your routine for wide lunges and squats to strengthen your legs. A perfect board that will last a long time as the kids grow and you gain in skill. Keep extending your rail to get a bigger ride surface.

5 of 5 50 y.o. mother went snowboarding without falling! February 12, 2024
Reviewer: Pueblo An  
I have been using some sort of balance board for the past year while at a standing desk.  I have been gradually progressing up until I decided to get this board because it can grow with you.  If I had started with this board, I probably would have saved a lot of money.  I went snowboarding in my 20's and fell the whole time and it was horrible.  Now, in my 50's I went, really didn't fall and it was great!  I think this board is also helping with back pain and reducing risk of slipping on ice as I get older.  I love it!
