    Just saw this one on ESPN. Never slack lined, yet, but I do lots of Indo board, it really helps. Does anyone have any good, fun, balance drills?

    No but I stand on one foot sometimes and I walk on just the curb of the sidewalk sometimes too.

    I drink a bunch of double IPA’s and then smoke a spliff, then walk around, does that count?

    Only balance-related thing I do is shred the carver, sometimes trying to push the envelope on turns and such.

    I could see how balance training would be beneficial tho fosho.

    Get a foam block or small Bosu ball and do one legged stands for 45 second shots. Once you get there clean, slowly add shallow squats -
    And I mean shallow - to get those small muscles working. Seriously, it’s a simple set of exercises that work wonders for balance and strength, especially if your shredding waves. That takes lots of “hidden” strength that these will develop.

    Well, you can try standing on a wobbly rock or a tree branch and do them. And what’s wrong with Tofu??? It makes a wonderful sanding block when it dries out.

    Sounds kinda similar to a workout i do. I believe they are called "clock squats" or somthing. Basically stand on once foot and reach the other leg out and tap the floor with your all around the "clock". Standing on your left leg and tapping 12-3 is easy.... but when you get towards 7,8,9... it's tough.

    I also have a "goof board". It's awesome and waaaaaay more practical then an indo board....

    It's chemistry. Balancing chemical equations.

    It looks like a mathematical equation for “blood is thicker than water”.

    I fail miserably at math and chemistry so I just take chemicals
