STEPS TO BALANCE BOARD SAFETY
Make your safety a priority. Before using Maksha Balance Board, ready carefully the following Safety Warning Notice
1. WATCH OUT FOR HAZARDS. Check the surrounding area for any objects that can injure you if you fall on them such as random toys, edges or tables or fireplaces. Use in an open area without obstacles on the floor. Remove objects that may cause injuries such as tables, chairs, toys and any other items.Do not throw and catch objects while balancing unless you are spotted, have control of the board and can start and stop safely.
2. PROTECT YOUR BODY. Using a Balance board close to a wall can help when first learning. You can keep your hands posted on the wall while rocking back and forth on the board to get familiar with it.
3. HAVE A SPOTTER. Children and beginners should always be supervised and have a spotter for added safety. A spotter stands in front of the rider with his/her hands out front for support. A spotter can also hold on to the rider’s hips from behind while the rider holds on to a stable surface or counter top. Spot using a wide and staggered stance for stability
4. BUILD UP CONFIDENCE. Using a Balance board close to a wall can help when first learning. You can keep your hands posted on the wall while rocking back and forth on the board to get familiar with it.
5. MIND THE FLOOR. Using the board on a carpet will slow down the board a bit making it easier to use, the thicker the carpet, the slower the board will react. Boards are intended for use on carpet, rubber matting, nonslip surfaces, grass or turf. Using on concrete or rough surfaces will scratch the board. Using on smooth tile surfaces will not provide traction for starting and stopping with safety.
6. BE SOBER. Do not use while intoxicated or under the influence of other substances.
Now yes! You are ready to make your first step on your Balance Board. Have fun and share the experience with friends and family. Enjoy the ride!
