The Bongo board gained popularity in the 1960's as an off-season device for surfers and skiers. Now the Bongo board has been transformed into an affordable and fun balance/training device that offers quite a workout for fitness enthusiasts.
Bongo boards are touted by fitness professionals as a great way to improve your balance and work your muscles.
The Bongo board develops balance and coordination skills essential to almost all sports and activities by toning the muscles used to maintain balance and stability, and by teaching the proper distribution of body weight to achieve constant equilibrium.
The board's design includes a skate-style deck, independently rotating barrel roller, and an elastic retention cord.
