Indo Boards

Postby style121 » Thu Aug 16, 2007 9:58 am

Living in South Africa I can't seem to get these anywhere here, and nobody can deliver them to SA either since the cost of insurance and delivery would be more than the boards themselves.

Anybody know a place that would ship to South Africa?

just make one yourself. Use a shelf board and cut a PVC pipe. You can also use a skate board deck. Cost in U.S. about $10.00

i dont like indo boards i used one at a shop once and thought they were too ez cuz after teh first 10 minutes of getting the hang of it u can just stand up on it doing absolutely nothing, of course u can always do little tricks on it like a 180 and stuff, but that doesnt really help your kiting out very much.

in the end i think its not worth it.

Bru! - what do you need one for? You got waves and plenty of stuff to do - they're there for the sorry wanna be bastard who's got snow-ice - and no wind in the middle of the idaho flats... if its flat... and has been told it'll make him a 'better' surfer....

Agree with the last 2 guys too.

Ok fair enough. I honestly didn't think it would help my kiting that much though (i'd need miracles for that), and was aiming more at the strengthening aspect. Its supposed to make your core stronger, is that just a load of marketing bull?

Just do manuals/wheelies on your skateboard.

Much more fun and does the same thing. :thumb:

Indo Board Riding is a lot fun and is pretty excausting. I think it will give you a lot more balance feeling for all sports. Try grabs!
