Told you it was good exercise. :D

As far as your feet, I get foot pain the first couple of times riding. I think the muscles in your feet get used in ways they aren't used to, just like calves and the rest. For me it goes away after a time or two. YMMV.

so back on topic...is that thing used to practice ollies, 50/50, rails/boxes and little 180's?
Yeah, obviously you can't slide but static exercises are good. It gives you a feel for jumping with the board on, teaches you to land slightly on-edge instead of flat so you don't just slide off (I did some pratfalls the first couple of times) and teaches balance. I've done 180s on and off, hopping back and forth from nollie to ollie, stuff like that.

The workout is very much like pliometrics too. Very explosive movements. I got out of breath really quickly at first, but you get better at it.
