Update: My kids were pretty hesitant to try it out, they were afraid. Two days later my 8 year old is getting on it by himself and his confidence is growing every time he tries. Uploaded a video to show his attempts. So proud that he is trying it out, he's usually not interested in physical challenges!
Very well made. Nice and wide for my kids to practice (6 and 8 years old). I really enjoy hopping on too, it's a lot of fun! Effective in helping to train core balance. Sturdy with a good non skid top, no slipping so far. Would highly recommend to anyone in the market for a balance board!
We LOVE this balance board! I bought it for leg strengthening purposes for my son, but it is wearing my tail out too. Warning for any novices: You can really bust your tail on this thing. The surface is rough, like sandpaper. That is good for traction but BAD on your rear end if it skids across it during a fall. Overall, it’s a great workout and fun for the whole family.
It's well made and has good traction where you stand. It's a great challenge for my balance and I later bought a cushion to use in place of the roller just so I can get started. I hope to progress to the roller.
