partyandBSIve gotten into slopestyle mtb recently and it really seems to help. Really staying active is key. I also like to hacky sack or play with a kendama. Balance boards are also super dope. I took a generic brand soda bottle (because its just a cylinder and no shape or groove to it) and filled it to the top with water. Then i gorrilla glued the top on and waited a day and use an old deck on it. You can do shuvs and switch ups. My buddy whos a rad skateboarder even kickflipped on it. If you have a deck it only cosrmt $2 to make!
DolanReloadedSkateboarding is so much more fun than balance boarding. I get bored of my mongo balance board in like 5 min. But i can roll around popping shit for like an hr a day without getting bored.
Also, most shit you do on a skateboard is better balance training than a balance board. Even ollies take alot of balance to line up your body in the right spot before you pop.
partyandBSMongo boards have grooves and suck. You cant do any tricks with them. But im not saying dont skate and just balance board at all. You cant always skate when its rainy or if you live on a dirt road and arent trying to leave so instead of sitting on the couch staring at your phone or the tv you could balance board. My friends and i will even play s.k.a.t.e. doing tricks on and off of the bottle. Skating is obviously 100 times better to do when ya can
