Whirly Board Spinning Board is a device that takes balancing into a three-dimensional space. Unlike other balance boards, a Whirly Board’s unique design allows you to balance in all sides as well as to make 360 spins.

Story of the Whirly Board

A balance board was created by the board sports and outdoor activity enthusiast Erik M. Olsen. He started this company in his own garage in a small town in Wisconsin back in 2014.

Erik M. Olsen had problems with spinning on a snowboard and wakeboard. So he came up with an idea and that is to attach a half bowling ball to a skateboard deck.

Later he also attached half pool balls on the tips of a board for more control. That way he could practice spinning and maintaining a balance.

Overview

Unlike other balance board types, this balance board doesn’t really fall into any of the known categories. Its design makes it a standalone balance board.

The spherical shape of the fulcrum allows rotating freely in all three dimensions. While side fulcrums add more control and feel to the experience.

All three balance points allow you to spin 360° for a three-dimensional balance immersion, engaging a multitude of muscle groups simultaneously, thus achieving perfect balance.

Whirly Board is a perfect balance board for board sports enthusiasts and athletes. Whether you do snowboarding, wakeboarding, skateboarding, or even surfing. Now you can practice spinning, tricks, improve balance, and muscle memory.

Deck

Currently, the Whirly Board Spinning Board deck consists of a quality 8-ply Canadian Maple skateboard deck. To prevent the board from slipping the deck is covered by the material of your choice: standard grip tape or Eco-friendly cork rubber.

The shape of the board is a standard skateboard deck which adds up to the overall feel and aesthetics, especially if you’re into skateboarding.

If you’re using the standard grip tape, it’s recommended to wear shoes for safety. This will give you more of a skateboard feel.

But if you prefer to go barefoot I suggest going with the cork rubber grip tape. It will not scratch your feet and it feels good.

Fulcrum

On the bottom of the board, there are three fulcrums, one in the center and two on the sides (nose and tail).

The big one in the center is molded from high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

The ones on the side are made from durable urethane rubber. The material is similar to a very hard skateboard wheel.

The central half-sphere is the main balancing point, while the side balancing point provides additional control and gives a sense of safety.

The half-spheres are very durable and come in different colors.
