  • Intermediate Balance Boards
  • Fits all Molded Rail End and Stop System Vew-Do Boards

The Zippy Roller is an intermediate step. With a special outrigger design, the Zippy is perfect for learning to ride the angles with a bit of a helping hand.

  • A reduced overall diameter making it lower to the ground.
  • A wider primary riding surface allowing for increased contact with the riding surface and deck.
  • A reduced degree of taper allowing for decreased angulation.
  • An increased overall length thereby decreasing maneuverability.
  • The primary difference of the Zippy roller design lies in the OUTRIGGERS. Often refereed to as "The Knobs". These outriggers are designed to act similarly to training wheels on a bicycle. When toe or heal pressure is applied, these outriggers provide a point of reference for the rider as the roller tips up on end creating awareness for the degree of taper and angulation under foot.

I am a newbie so I thought a zippy rock would be the right starting point for me with my board. It has been great! It has given me the "training wheels" I need to start to explore what I can do on my balance board. I am also impressed by the craftsmanship of Vew-Do products. These are wonderfully hand crafted and clearly made with expertise.

I bought an individual Zippy rock along with the Flow board so I could start off with a beginner-friendly set-up, and I've been using it for about a week now. My first time on the board was terrifying. I didn't fall, but I was heavily relying on a couple high backed chairs (holding the backs, at chest height) to remain stable. Still, just the little bit of movement and balance I managed was fun. Since then I've been playing around on the Flow board/Zippy rock for a few minutes each day, and I'm amazed at how quickly a non-athletic beginner can pick this up. I don't need to have anything nearby to help me balance anymore. I'm still mostly just going side to side, but I find myself using more front-to-back motion. I can make turns pretty easily. I can watch TV while doing an easy side-to-side (and some minor turns to readjust) on the Flow/Zippy and actually follow the plot. It's just coming naturally now and no longer requires 100% of my concentration. If you're a complete beginner and not sure where to start, I highly recommend the Pickle Nub board and this Zippy rock with either the Flow or its own Zippy board. Don't worry that you won't be able to use them - just about anyone can learn to use these. Take it as slow as you need to - the improvements come quickly!
