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?
Doing everything on an unstable platform if really going to help.

These videos are what other snowboarders are doing.

The double bosu 180 and 360 show here is really good (the full video has a few more things)
