HOW TO – Make a balance board for carpet surfing

Fun & Games

This looks like something fun to do on a rainy afternoon.

These are sold as “indoboards” on the market, but I will show you how to make your own at a fraction of the cost. Watch out for th carpet burns though!

    I remember reading about this somewhere! It was in a comic strip, and it was called a “Rola-Bola,” I think. Now if I could only remember where I saw it… hmmm…

    Ok, he’s using a bottle of diet coke for the roller it appears. Can’t we find a use for mentos in this project?

    If you make this board (or for that matter if you buy the IndoBoard) DO NOT use it on carpet – the risk of breaking your wrist, arm, or shoulder increases greatly when you use these things on carpet. Most surf shops do not have these out on display as a result of customers trying the boards out on their carpeted floors and breaking any of the above mentioned.

    @tenax8: Yep. They’re called Rola Bolas to jugglers. Pro versions can cost quite a bit. The video link is down for me, however, so I’m not seeing anything.
