Indo Boarding

Matt and Brett got all excited this weekend about Indo Boarding. Its supposed to help you with your balance and coordination to make you better at snow/wake/skate boarding. It's a board on top of a tube that rolls and the trick is to stay on it for as long as you can without touching the ground. You can also pull a few tricks on it. The store that we found the Indo at charged a buttload* for the set, so Matt and Brett decided to head over to the hardware store and make their own. Matt's turned out pretty good after he rounded the edges, sanded the board and put on the grip tape. They used a PVC pipe for the bottom, and nailed lips on to the bottom so that the board doesnt slip off the pipe. Matt is really happy with result, and is excited to have is own Indo board at home for $10.
*A buttload is $75 or more.

maybe he could start marketing his own line of "matty's indo boards" and charge $30 instead of the $10 to make them...

hey that's an idea. I mean i'd rather play 30 than a buttload! :)
