Title: New product launch on Kickstarter: Blue Planet Balance Surfer
Post by: blueplanetsurf on July 15, 2019, 11:55:05 PM
We are very proud to announce an exciting new project/product that we are launching on Kickstarter: The Blue Planet Balance Surfer. What initially started as a quest for comfort, has now evolved into a patent-pending design that provides 3 different levels of balance challenge in 1 tool-less Board.

This is the preview link, the campaign will go live tomorrow, Tuesday:
https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/rstehlik/multi-purpose-balance-board-blue-planet-balance-surfer?ref=nilj7e&token=a03bedc2

Competing and training for long-distance races like the Molokai to Oahu race kept me in shape but I was still experiencing back and neck discomfort after long days sitting at my computer.  My chiropractor recommended raising my monitor to eye level, and I realized if mounted it on an arm I could use it as a standing desk as well.  Standing up regularly helped but I was still prone to bad posture and would constantly lean against my desk and load one hip with all my weight. But after using an old balance rocker board I used for SUP training, I noticed how my posture improved from the small balance rocker which was requiring me to stand upright and centered yet still allowed me to focus on my work.  From that sprang the idea of developing an easy to use balance rocker board for office use that could easily be adjusted to also provide a challenging balance workout for the boardsports I love.  I began designing and prototyping new versions and here we are today.   
With 2 previously successful Kickstarter campaigns and such a great experience interacting with the crowdfunding community, we obviously thought of Kickstarter right away when deciding how to launch this product. We love bringing new products to this community and hope you can support us in this next launch, as a backer pledging your support to this product launch, you will be rewarded with a board at less than 50% of the retail price and the early backers get the best value.  We will ship the Balance Surfer to backers anywhere in the world but if you live on Oahu you can choose the pick up at the shop option and save on shipping fees.

Aloha, Robert Stehlik, founder/ owner

Ok...  some pressure, Robert.  I have a GOOF board that almost kilt me. A) I found it too fast.  B) Put it on a piece of carpeting over a wood floor and the carpet moved. (bonehead move)  C) Put it on a solid carpet base and found a smaller dia. tube, but still seemed too fast. (for me)

So, I take the GOOF board and set it atop an Indo Board mushroom ...and, the board jiggles around on it.  I don't feel it is doing much except  giving my legs a fast-twitch workout.  It is also working on a 360deg radial; boards in the ocean move around a lot but not like this.

What do you expect your rig may do for us SUP'ers specifically?

Hi Jim,
Thanks for asking.  I  have been working on balance boards for many years and found that a rocker board is a much better simulation of SUP balance than boards using cushions or roller type boards where the balance is more about side to side movement (and can be dangerous as you found out).
In the easy "office mode"  the balance surfer is relatively easy to balance on (similar to standing on a stable 34" wide board).  It only rocks side to side but you have to keep your weight centered to stay balanced and the core engaged, so it's a good way to keep good posture when working at a standing desk for example.  I find that it actually improves blood flow and focus without being distracting when working at a standing desk.  Standing up regularly at work really helped the back pain I had.
Since it can't rotate, this mode is also great for using as a SUP trainer by using the top 2 pieces of a 3 piece paddle and a resistance band.  In the challenging mode, the balance board is more tippy side to side and also front to back and can also rotate.  Using this mode is great for training balance for SUP surfing and foiling.  We will eventually offer three balance modules with four levels of difficulty: Easy (wood board only), + Medium, Challenging and Extra Challenging attachments.  So the level of difficulty can be increased as balance improves.  The balance challenge can also be varied by using it on a hard surface (more challenging) vs soft surface like carpet or a soft foam pad which makes it easier to balance.  By pledging to back our project before we start production, you can get the balance surfer for $59 (limited qty) vs the expected retail price of $149, please consider supporting our project, Mahalo!

Hi Robert

This looks great and much better than the balance board I have been using. Anything that will extend my years surfing is greatly appreciated. My wife is a retired physiotherapist and perhaps think about expanding into the physio market as they use a variety of balance trainers.

 Iím in!

Thank you for the support Bob, it looks like we got two backers from the Zone today, awesome. 
Yes, I think the Balance Surfer has great potential for PT as it's safe to use and balance difficulty can be increased slowly, please show your wife and ask for her input.  Aloha, Robert

Congrats Robert! Good addition to a crowded market.

I would really be interested in seeing your product in action at its highest
level of difficulty but with more focus on workout drills & SUP/Surf related
drills. Any chance to you'd post an instructional video? It would probably be
a good motivator to back this product on top of the good price.

Either way, it brings awareness to an important topic and I applaud you for
throwing your hat into the mix.

Hi Robert

I did show Wendy your video on the balance trainer. She said that there are many balance boards out there but the design is interesting especially being able to adjust the degree of difficulty. For me she thinks doing exercises such as small squats will be good for core stability. Looking forward to the launch.

Cheers

Bob

'Got it - both the understanding and a place in line.   

There are lots of deities in this marketplace who, either because they are 'Heros or Stars', expect our business.  They put their names over the top of those who shaped or designed their products. Robert is like a 'real person', who runs a business, one of the few visible here.  Based on the board I got, I don't doubt this balance gizmo is going to be great.

I just pushed you to within twenty bucks of your goal. It would have been fun to push you over the top, but that's good enough. Congratulations on another successful Kickstarter campaign, you'll obviously get there, a lot of them don't make it. I'm looking forward to the product, I need all the help I can get.

Coincidentally, I've been helping the PT who keeps me more or less in once piece on Maui, Shantelle Pierce, with a solution to the habit of people standing on one leg or putting too much pressure on one leg. With my crap knee, it's something I have an interest in. It's a bit of electronics that senses when people are exerting uneven foot pressure for too long. I'm just whipping up a prototype for her as a favor, no other involvement, but it's an interesting approach. She is convinced that most knee and hip joint problems stem from this habit. Your balance trainer attacks the same issue but in a limited venue. Her idea is wearable, but only focuses on uneven joint pressure.

Bill, Jim, Bob, Tom, Burchas, thank you for backing the project, your support means a lot to me.

We have just reached our funding goal in the first 48 hours.  Our stretch goal is to make additional balance modules, we plan to offer a medium and extra challenging module (in addition to the Challenging module).  Backers will have the option to get the board with all three modules for a total of 7 different balance adjustment options when the campaign closes.  Burchas, we will also make some training videos with exercises for the balance surfer so you can train your balance daily.

Robert, do we need to open an account to take part in this, or can we just sign in as a guest? In other words, if I make the pledge as a guest, do I still qualify to get the "Balance Surfer"? It looks like it is O.K. to just sign in as a guest, but I thought I should double check.

Also, for shipping, I live in Canada but also have a U.S. shipping address. I didn't see any way to make the differentiation with as far as I got in the process???

Post by: Tom on July 18, 2019, 02:23:50 PM
I'm looking forward to getting it and glad I could help out. I've found that when I spend some time not SUPing, my balance suffers and I need a few days on the water to get back to mid season form. I'm hoping that by using this on non-SUP days will keep me tuned in. I'll let you know if it helps.

I do know that standing on a SUP corrects bad posture by forcing you to stand with your weight evenly distributed and prevents certain back issues. I use to be pretty involved with pt for surfers with back issues. (dynamiccontractiontechnique.com/). One example I'd relate to illustrate my point is to tell people that they may have a good pair of hiking boots that they can walk in for long periods with out getting back problems and another pair of athletic shoes that they also can walk in for long periods with out getting back problems. But, if they wore a hiking boot on one foot and one of their athletic shoes on the other foot, they would get severe back pain from taking a long walk.

Hi Quickbeam,
Thanks for your support.
I think you can sign out as a guest, no problem.  Just enter your US shipping address and you should qualify for the US shipping rate.  Let me know if you have any problems with the pledge and I'll try to help you.

Aloha, Robert

Thanks to the support of over 200 backers we were able to add additional features.  We added two more balance modules which gives you a total of 7 different balance settings, from easy to extra challenging and a soft EVA deck for barefoot use.
Please check out this update video with details, there are two more days left in the campaign, so if you have not backed the project yet, please consider it, the Balance Surfer is the perfect tool to improve your balance over the winter months.
This is the Kickstarter campaign:

That sounds great Rob 8) How do I add those modules? I went to manage my pledge but
there was no option to add those alone. only go to higher pledges that offers the full kit
Which is more than the $15 addition specified.

I just logged in and was able to change my original pledge and increase it by $15. I think that is all you need to do.

I got my Balance Surfer delivered a few days ago and I'm happy. Being in my 70s, I know that my balance is fading a bit and when I haven't surfed for a while it takes me a couple of sessions to get back to being comfortable on my lower volume boards. The balance surfer isn't really sold as a balance practice aid, but it works for me. I can tell by using it for two or three days, it has already helped my balance plus its given me a bit of leg exercise.

Hi Tom,
Excellent, I'm glad to hear that.  I try to use my Balance Surfer daily and I have noticed that I feel more balanced when I get on a small board and don't need as much time to warm up and get my "sea legs".
We have the Balance Surfer available on our website now:
https://www.blueplanetsurf.com/balance-surfer.html

And it will be available on Amazon shortly here:

The stance length is a little tight, but I can increase the challenge a bit using surf/karate footing vs parallel.   I like this device.

Hi Jim,
Cool thank you for the feedback, I'm stoked you like it.  Do you think the board should be wider side to side or heel to toe, or both?  Specs are attached.

If anyone else on the Standupzone is interested in getting a Balance Surfer, I can offer you a great deal if you agree to write an honest review on Amazon for us.
You have to have a Standupzone account, please contact me through "my Messages"  if you are interested.

Aloha, Robert

Negative.  I think the compactness of the package is a major feature. It does all the wiggle-woggle (and more, if you change the inserts) to engage your balance system.  The Goof board is 44 x 16" ...a whole separate category, needing a lot more locker space. 

Maybe your next item, Robert, will be a pneumatic, foil trainer you can place in shops for people to get the 'feel' of what it is like to ride an Easy Foiler board. 

In reading foil post, both here and the Breeze, I have no sense of how it would feel under-foot.  Is it a dampened, slo-mo pedestal or balancing on the head of a pin?  (new thread)

Hi Jim,
The Balance Surfer with the Challenging or XChallenging module is the closest balance sensation to foiling of any balance board I have tried, the balance on a foil is very sensitive to tiny shifts in weight, there is very little dampening.  I'm thinking of making an inflatable ball module for the Balance Surfer, kind of like a Bosu Ball with a square base with adjustable air pressure but I think the stiff modules are actually a more realistic balance challenge for SUP and foiling.

 Awesome!  I'm loving mine.  Have it on the medium (challenging) mode and it is on a hard floor.  I got it to expidite my foiling next spring and I'm sure it will. Was a real eye opener to experience the front/rear weight shift that is so important. At first I had no sensitivity there, just full power back or forward, nothing in between. Took a couple of times to start being able to modulate front to rear balance, mostly because the movements are so small and require precise muscle control.  I have little doubt this is going to spare me many wipeouts (still plenty to be sure) that I would have had just learning the weight shift.
 And the workout to the muscles involved is significant. I get tired in 5-10 minutes using it.  Well done!!

If I might ask:  have purchased a Neil Pryde Glide sup/surf foil and have a Slingshot slingwing I got last summer.  Going to decide on a 4 in 1 board for our inland lake with light wind with foiling the goal as we seldom get planing speed winds.  Hope to Wing and Wind foil mostly once I learn.
 Going to Maui for a week starting the 11th. 
Would your recommend I take a lesson in surfing and windsurfing or just one of them at a time?  Plan to take 2 lessons either way. Won't see waves back home but I've not wakeboarded to learn board handling (flatwater Isup only).  I do have a jet ski to tow for learning come spring time.
 Love the videos and your new boards.

MLB,

Take a foil lesson on Maui. Being towed by a professional is your best path to success. You could also take a wing lesson there. Forget the windsurf and surf lesson. Worthless for you.

Loving my balance surfer as well! really good product and with the Red insert, more challenging than I thought it would be.

I love the inflatable insert idea 8) I would buy one. makes it even more portable and versatile if you want to bring it with you on the road.

My only comment at this point would be about the traction pad. current one is pretty good but for guys like me who spend hours standing in front of the computer I would like to have a thicker pad for more cushioning. would make it much more comfortable for long stretches. That said, it easy enough to replace the pad and choose the one I like which is what I'll do.

Stoked you like the Balance Surfer!  I agree that for wingfoiling, take the lesson behind the boat and then a wing lesson, you can always practice without the foil at first, and practice the wing handling on the beach.
Regarding 4-in-1 board, it's a compromise.  If you will use it mainly for wingfoiling, a SUP foil board will work better.

I'm stoked you like it Burchas.  Thank you for the feedback regarding deck pad.  We use the same EVA material as on our SUP boards but for standing a long time a softer pad is worth testing.

Got mine off amazon a few days ago and have been happy with it so far. Will post a review on amazon once i've had it a week or so. Have been experimenting with the modules using both parallel and surf stances. Do you have any recommendation on module orientations for the different stances?  Thx!
