A Bongo board looks like a skateboard, but it has a single rotating wheel that allows you to maneuver it in any direction. It provides an even less stable surface than does a balance board or a wobble board, and is s great for improving balance and coordination, and for toning the muscles that are used to maintain stability. Training on Bongo boards will help you learn proper distribution of body weight to achieve constant equilibrium, and that makes it a great training tool for skiers, snowboarders, skateboarders, surfers, boxers, runners, golfers and soccer players.
