The Spooner: A New Take On the Fun Board Hot

spoonerboardThe Spooner balance board combines all of your favorite board sports into one product you can use almost everywhere. The design is relatively simple--it's a 24, 26 or 28 inch plastic board with traction strips on the top side and a tough but slippery bottom. The idea is you can simulate your favorite balance sports--skateboarding, snowboarding, skinboarding--on almost any surface.

While the length of the board is 24-28 inches, the shape is a concave--this is essential to the board's function. Only a portion of the board touches the ground, creating minimal friction, allowing the board to slide on tough, course surfaces--like concrete. The concave design also turns the board into a balancing device when it's stationary.

The Spooner is a versatile toy. You can ride it as skin board on flat surfaces like a basketball or tennis court--simply throw it down and hop on. The board also works well for sliding down hills in the winter or summer as it's capable of skimming over snow and grass. The company also sells the board as a surf tutor. You can lie flat on top of the spooner, and jump up and try to find your balance point.
While the Spooner is a fun and safe alternative to other board sports, it also has appeal as a physical education tool. The design develops a strong center of gravity and if used properly, it can promote foot transfer skills.

Overall, the Spooner is a pretty cool product. It is less effective for full-grown adults but is perfect for kids craving an introduction to extreme sports. Parents need not worry about their new hardwoods or broken bones as the board is designed to be floor safe as well as kid safe. So if you have a kid who is full of energy, the Spooner may be a good product to look into. Boards range from $39.95-59.95
