Sit/Stand desk: Keep your legs moving even while sitting down to increase blood flow and prevent fatigue. Or give yourself a break while standing up by reducing the difficulty to maintain balance.
Beginners: The stabilizer ring helps maintain balance and get the feel for the board if you are just getting started. It is still recommended to hold onto something stationary while trying this balance board for the first time. With the stabilizer ring properly in place, once you find your balance it will be easier to maintain balance for longer periods of time.
Fitness Routines: The Stabilizer ring helps the Whirly Board maintain its location by preventing any lateral sliding. Even while held in place by the ring, the board still provides the core strengthening benefits of maintaining balance and does not hinder the dynamic 3 dimensional motion of the board.
Use it anywhere: By providing a solid receptacle for the center ball, The Whirly Stabilizer ring allows you to balance just about anywhere. It also provides a home base for the board to rest on while not in use at a work station or gym.
Absolutely! We here at Whirly Board believe in quality of our craftsmanship and know what its like to have products built to break right after their warranty expires. Our materials are mostly sourced in Wisconsin and hand built in our home workshop.
Register your Whirly Board online with your unique serial number on our Whirly Warranty page so that you can always have a guaranteed replacement for any manufacture defects.
We guarantee that our boards are pretty much indestructible and we will replace it if for some freak chance something happens to it, and the shipping is on us.
We are going to say a big NO on this one! Our reasons are two fold:
1) You might end up scratching your floors and the cost of repairing wood floors is not worth a whirl session!
2) It is not safe to use a Whirly Board on slippery surfaces. You are most likely going to damage yourself before your board.
We recommend buying one of our specially designed Whirl Mats to help you spin at your full potential. Don’t want to spend the extra money?
Thin carpet is what we recommend that works the BEST!
We have driven over our test boards with a Jeep Grand Cherokee and didn’t have any issues. We also have thrown it off of a two story roof top without breaking.
We suggest a weight limit of around 500 lbs to be safe. If you are afraid of breaking your board, don’t fret, we have a Whirly Guarantee that will replace any board due to any manufacture defect.
If your board squashes or cracks, we will send you a new one! Just keep whirlin!

Yes and No. It depends on the type of board that you get and what you will be using it for.
If you will be using your board to practice board sport tricks, we recommend getting the Skateboard Grip Tape style option and wearing shoes. This will give you more control and protect your feet from the abrasive grip tape.
If you will be using your board to work out or have kids that would use it often without shoes, we recommend the Cork Rubber Grip Tape style option that is softer on your hands and feet. You can still use shoes if you choose on the cork rubber because it is a very durable material.
The Whirly Board Stabilizer Ring was designed and created to accompany the Whirly Board balance board. It is a semi-rigid rubber ring with a harness of 90A allowing it to be slightly flexible. It provides the right amount of traction between the ring and the hard plastic center ball to offer some support without hindering motion. The ring was originally intended to help standing desk users who wanted to sit down for a while, but continue actively moving their legs and feet on the Whirly Board. The problem that occurs by sitting down and placing your feet on the board is lateral pressure that causes the board to slide away from your chair. The ring provides a receptacle for the center ball that keeps the boards location stationary, but still allows motion in all directions.
The whirly board stabilizer ring serves as “training wheels” for new users getting used to the feel of a Whirly Board. It is still highly recommended to hold onto something stationary like a countertop or desk while getting started, even with the ring. It can still feel like a challenge, but once you find your balance the ring will help you maintain it easier and for longer. The center ball remains in contact with the ground, but the ring adds just a little bit of friction if you start to shift, this offers a subtle assistance controlling the motion
While developing and testing the ring, we also found that it can be used and appreciated by more advanced users for fitness routines. In this application, the ring again serves as a receptacle to help hold the board in place for fitness moves like push ups or mountain climbers. While the ring helps the board maintain its location, it does not hinder general movement. It still provides the core strengthening challenge of maintaining balance through the workout, but prevents the frustration of the board sliding away from you during your routine. Helpful ideas for these moves and more can be found in our free workout video on our Youtube channel.
