I don't have a pic of mine either but it is about 8" high. The height of 2 4x4's. Don't forget your launching onto the rail so it will take less effort then the straight up hopping we're doing on the balance beam.
This is for muscle memory and balance. I used a beat up short board with tennis shoes on and that is still tiring. Like Jedi said I thought of using a skate board just haven't.
I don't practice till closer to the season. Just time constraints of being a dad.
The main difference or what I needed to get used to after all this practice was lining up the take off. My park is very rutted up and icey so even with this practice it takes me a bit of great lines. I only 50/50 which this is perfect for, this year I'm turning it up for boardslides. Yes I do practice the boardslide movement on the beam as well. Just haven't done it on the rail yet, or better said attempted but still learning boardslides.
