I have been using the Indo Board for a few years now, really just because I thought it was fun and a good way to get some balance exercises in.  But I was kayak fishing a few weeks ago and standing like I usually do, and it hit me how much the similarity of balancing on my kayak and balancing on the Indo Board are.  They are virtually identical!  So I wanted to share this pretty cool piece of training equipment with you, I think that if you are nervous about standing and fishing from your kayak that this will help give you the confidence.  


As I mentioned above the side to side balancing that you do on your kayak is basically the same as the motion on your kayak.

Adam Standing

The basic premise in standing in your kayak (or even siting and moving around in your kayak for that matter) is that where ever your head goes your body will follow.  Most people tip or fall off of their kayaks because they lean too much one way or another and their head is sticking way over one side of the kayak.  

Adam Indo Board

The Indo Board allows you to practice balancing using your hips to move with the board instead of moving your upper body.

This product was created for surfers and has transitioned into just about all board sports but I personally think that it is a great way to train for standing in your kayak as well.
