The construction of the Wooden Balance Board begins with a high quality 8-ply Canadian Maple skateboard deck. Each board surface is covered with your choice of Eco-friendly cork rubber or standard skateboard grip tape to prevent slipping and increase gripping. Triple half-sphere technology allows for three separate balance points that will enable you to spin independently on each.
Center Balance Ball:
The center balance ball is molded from high density polyethylene (HDPE). A rubber gasket is placed between the board and center ball to improve durability and strength.
The original Wooden Balance Board consists of a wooden balance board made from a standard 8.25″ wide Canadian Maple 8 ply skateboard deck. Each deck is unique containing a wood grain pattern that is contoured to help your feet grip the board. Skateboarders will feel right at home, and every one will appreciate the tried and true shape.

- Can I use my board on wood floors, tile or cement?
We are going to say a big NO on this one! Our reasons are two fold:
1) You might end up scratching your floors and the cost of repairing wood floors is not worth a whirl session!
2) It is not safe to use a Wooden Balance Board on slippery surfaces. You are most likely going to damage yourself before your board.
We recommend buying one of our specially designed Whirl Mats to help you spin at your full potential. Don’t want to spend the extra money?
Thin carpet is what we recommend that works the BEST!
- What is the weight limit?
We have driven over our test boards with a Jeep Grand Cherokee and didn’t have any issues. We also have thrown it off of a two story roof top without breaking.
We suggest a weight limit of around 500 lbs to be safe. If you are afraid of breaking your board, don’t fret, we have a Guarantee that will replace any board due to any manufacture defect.
If your board squashes or cracks, we will send you a new one!

- Do I need to wear shoes on my board?
Yes and No. It depends on the type of board that you get and what you will be using it for.
If you will be using your board to practice board sport tricks, we recommend getting the Skateboard Grip Tape style option and wearing shoes. This will give you more control and protect your feet from the abrasive grip tape.
If you will be using your board to work out or have kids that would use it often without shoes, we recommend the Cork Rubber Grip Tape style option that is softer on your hands and feet. You can still use shoes if you choose on the cork rubber because it is a very durable material.
