Wondering about training for Balance?

I was wondering if the vet's here knew of any specific types of off season training that would help train/improve my overall balance on the board?

Lately I've been trying some squats with an overturned Bosu Ball, I balance on the flat base in my general snowboarding stance while doing squats or holding a squat position while going heel-toe. Sometimes I even do this while switching a 10-15lb medicine ball from hand to hand.

Will have to wait & see if this helps any while on the board, but my balance seems to have improved some! (...at least I don't fall off the ball like I did at first!)

Is there anything else you would suggest I add to my workouts that would help with overall balance for boarding?
