Anyone use a vew-do balance board that could give me advice on which board and rock to start with?
I Started snowboarding last winter - only got out a few times. Need to gain more confidence on riding and switching edges quickly - and not catching! These boards are supposed to help with balance, heel-toe, carving, edges & switching, not to mention there is an add-on you can get for more exercise that is supposed to help strengthen and condition for the season....
Having a hard time deciding which is best for my snowboarding level - i want one that works for beginners but also can easily upgrade rocks for more advanced techniques. I used to skateboard, so it would be fun to ollie and kickflip and do some 360's again too!
I was looking at the Indy, Flow and Zippy. I like the Indy and flow deck cuts best, as they seem to mimic the shape of a snowboard the best. While the zippy rock seems to be best for learning toe-heel, carving, and switching edges, I'm not a fan of the zippy board's shape - seems like it is best suited for surfing more than snowboarding!
Any advice or insight would be greatly appreciated!
