HAZELHURST, Wis.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--One of the most versatile gift ideas this holiday season, the Whirly Board is the first, 360-degree, rotating balance board with the flexibility to fit most lifestyles. Board sport enthusiasts are able to enhance their skills practicing spins and tricks. Office workers with standing desks are even more active while working. Fitness lovers have a new, fun way to work out, and children are burning more energy at play while developing better balance and key motor skills.
Unlike most balance boards that simply move back and forth, Whirly Board moves in all directions. That means it’s more effective and more challenging than other balance boards, and that is what makes it more fun! It also helps build a strong core, develop better balance and agility, improve spatial awareness, increase stability and other skills necessary for any sport, or just living a healthier fitter life.
“I didn’t create the Whirly Board as something to sell at first,” says Erik Olsen, the inventor. “I wanted something I could play with myself. I also wanted it to spin because I thought it would be fun, and spinning was always something I struggled with snowboarding and wakeboarding.”
Working from his family garage, Olsen took one of his old skateboard decks and cut a bowling ball to fit the bottom of the board. He then added one-half of a pool ball on each end to help individuals push off and balance on the board. He made some for his friends and it turned out to be a big hit. Now, five years later, Olsen has built more than 4,000 Whirly Boards by hand and has found a lot more uses for it. Individuals can balance and pivot on all three balance points on the board. This makes for endless possibilities.
Whirly Board has been picked as one of the top balance boards by “Best Products” four years in a row. Starting at $119.95, Whirly Board is crafted with durable materials. Its one-piece construction is virtually indestructible, and it comes with a lifetime warranty. Visit whirlyboard.com.
