4 Best Balance Board Brands
A balance board is a great piece of equipment to improve your balance and coordination. However, there are many different models and different brands. In this article, I highlight the 4 best balance board brands, which are proven with time.
What makes a good balance board?
A good balance board has to be sturdy and durable. That’s why you have to look out for materials the board is made out of.
High-quality materials will ensure the balance board will retain its looks in the long run as well as endure everything that comes its way.
Things to look out for:
- high-quality multi-ply wooden or PVC deck (check weight limit);
- good grip yet comfortable anti-slip surface on top (possibility to use barefoot);
- soft materials on the bottom (anti-scratch and quiet).
The best balance board brands list
The following brands have a long history and are known for high-quality products which are used around the world by professional athletes, coaches, trainers, and everyday people.
Some of these brands offer a warranty on their balance boards which indicates that they are confident in their products and ready to provide the highest quality of manufacturing.
NOTE: The following list has no particular order.
First on the list is the INDO BOARD brand. It is a US-based company founded in 1998 by Hunter Joslin, who has been a surfer and skateboarder for over 55 years.
INDO BOARD is truly a pioneer in the industry, with 25 years of experience. Their balance boards are made of high-quality materials and are built to last.
All of their boards are flat on the bottom with two ledges, and a roller has three rubber stripes to keep it more stable. INDO BOARD Original is probably their most recognized balance board.
Revbalance (formerly known as Revolution Balance Boards) company is the second largest player on the market after INDO BOARD.
Revbalance is a US-based company that was founded in 2013 as a small start-up with only a few balance board models available. It has grown since, and now offers a wide range of balance boards.
Their balance boards have a slick design and are made from high-quality materials, which they support by a lifetime warranty claim.
Revbalance 101 v2 is one of their most popular balance boards.
Vew-do is probably the oldest balance board company on this list. It was founded in 1990 in Vermont, USA.
The founder of Vew-do Brew “Vew” Moscarello was a snowboard instructor, and he invented a balance board as practice equipment for his students to help them improve their balance for snowboarding.
Vew-do balance boards are different from most models, they feature a unique design – a molded rail on the bottom of the board and a tapered roller. This makes the board more stable and allows it to perform specific movements which other balance boards can’t do.
The Vew-do Flow balance board is one of their most popular models.
Ebb & Flo
Ebb & Flo is a brand that makes balance boards with the surfer in mind. It’s a small company that was founded in 2009. Their main focus is balance boards for surfers.
Each balance board by Ebb & Flo is made from natural materials (wood and cork), which makes it durable and eco-friendly.
The Goofboard by Ebb & Flo is unique because it’s the longest balance board you can find.
