Also Posted in the belive it or not section and the juggling section and the workshop place.

Hey does anyone have any of the info on how to make a rolla bola/ balance board. I know this is more of a juggling thing but its also a circus kinda stunt. (and as far as I'm concerned you guys are a bit more handy than the jugglers! But that will be our secret.) So any help info ect. would be great. Send a pm if you want.

Thanks in advance!

I've never had the urge to build one, but most good exercise catalogs sell them. Maybe you can get some good visuals and dimensions from one of them.

With the current skateboard craze it shouldn't take much to just use a stock board (complete with grip tape, that black gritty surface the apply to the top of the board) and screw in a couple of cross pieces to act as stops at each end. Then all you need to figure out is how to make the roller.

Anton,

Give me a ring buddy. I make my own and they are a piece of cake. I'll even hook you up with a roller, my treat. Just one more service I offer. :D

Best,

Dan-
