CoolBoard at Metro Ski & Snowboard Show 2009

Myself (Nic), Sam - CoolBoard lover and part time hobbit, and Dr Paul Moody - international super star DJ and CoolBoard pro, would just like to say...

"Massive thank you to the Metro Ski show and all the lovely peeps we met down there. We worked our socks off and loved every second. We met many old friends and made many new ones. Almost everybody at the show loved CoolBoard, several other stands bought one and liked it so much they had it out on their stands – thank you guys.

Popping out for some food, it was great to see happy customers with a CoolBoard under one arm and a smile on their face. To all those who bought one, thanks you, and I hope you liked the show discount price! A big air clap to all for making the CoolBoard stand one of the busiest and most fun stands at the show!

Fred Syversen, genius extreme free skier, has become our latest team rider after we met at the show and he fell for CoolBoard. This is the guy who accidentally set the record for the highest ever cliff drop – 107m! Although unintentional, he realised what was going on and used his skill and bravery to keep himself alive –his full story coming soon...

More of you kept trying to be the first to pull off a CoolBoard pop shove-it on film... something about being on camera seems to jinx it every time!

We met many Personal Trainers and Physiotherapists, many of them buying a CoolBoard... which means you should be seeing CoolBoard a lot more in gyms and at the physiotherapist in 2010. We’re just working on our gym classes, so look out for fun group exercises classes in your gym soon. If your gym hasn’t got some CoolBoards yet, give them a nudge from us, you shouldn’t be missing out!

We had great fun meeting and filming with the Welsh Channel 4 Children’s crew. Their presenter had many giggles getting up on CoolBoard, and then falling off!

We were approached by Times on-line. They will be testing a whole range of ski fit products, and reckon they’ve found a winner in CoolBoard, lookout for their write-up soon.

Mikee and Sa at For Boarders By Boarders (FBBB for short!) had a wicked stand showing some of the best graffiti skills. They took a CoolBoard to graff up, can’t wait to see it. And Mikee, I know you wanted to hide it, but I hope you had an awesome birthday buddy ;).

Zack and John from Dark Summer free free ski mag – ace to see you both, and good to see the mag back out there – it’s been sorely missed.

Rachael from Gone Boarding and A1 surf – lush to hook up again and I hope the CoolBoard kept you entertained.

Happy couple with their new odd couple of CoolBoards - enjoy guys!

So after another successful, busy and fun show we’re already looking forwards to coming back next year... although we’ve still much to catch-up on after this year’s show!

As all ways - keep it steady guys,

Nic, Sam and the Doctor x

CoolBoard going to Metro Ski Show, London

Hi All,

Just wanted to give you all the heads up... we're gonna be down at the Metro Ski and Snowboard show this week with the 'CoolBoard balance and fitness board' stand G63, on the balcony, starting 11.00am Wednesday 21st morning and not letting up til Sunday 25th.

Last time we were down Zack and the Dark Summer Crew kindly had us along, and we made some good friends with the FBBB (For Boarders By Boarders) crew headed up by Mikee and Chico, so it'll be good to catch up with those guys, and all the other spot on peeps we met down there.

          J.P. - Legend          Zack and the DS stand            Snow in the show!

This show will be mammoth... if you're in any way into you snowy fun get your behind down there... it's the easiest way to see all the shops and brands under one roof and grab yourself some deals.

We've been working our arses off to make sure we'll put on a hell of a show! We'll have one of our biggest ever stands so come on down and see us. We'll of course have wicked deals on CoolBoards so if you wanna get yourself (or a loved one?!) an early Christmas present, so come say hello!

                  Mikee pulls a front side grab - sweet...

and some FBBB graph - sick

We've even signed up to making idiots of ourselves on the fashion show stage where once a day we'll be putting on the show, and we'll be giving you the chance to 'come on down' and show us what your made of!

So there you go, probably the best snow based show, come and say hi!

Keep it steady,

CoolBoard at White Air Show Extreme Sports Show

Thank you all White Air Visitors... Sam and I had an awesome weekend on the CoolBoard balance board stand with all of you down at the show - it rocked. See our pics and vids below...

Every morning started with a Red Arrows Display, the sun shone and everyone had a smile! We had an impromptu CoolBoard pop shove-it competition when 3 hot heads went for it, check out the video...

Along with all of you who bought a ticket, we also entertained most of the White Air staff (big thumbs up, you were all ace), Olly from Ollypop surf trainers, a few coppers (see pics) and our most notable rider to date - The Right Worshipful the Mayor of the City of Brighton & Hove, Councillor Ann Norman. She loved CoolBoard and if she hadn't been dragged away by other duties she'd have gone away with her very own CoolBoard! Come on Ann, give us a call...

We also met a family who bought one of the very first CoolBoards! From way back when they were waxed rather that the new hardwearing varnish, nice one guys, you were all ace and it was a pleasure – enjoy your new extras!!!

The friendly arm of the RAF were tempted away from their stands with the allure of CoolBoards, and we sent them away with a couple of CoolBoard balance boards for each of their wakeboarding centres and surf centre after they saw the training and fun potential! Nice one Kieri and Ben.

So thanks again to all, I think the White Air Show represented the end of the ‘summer’, and a good way to end it was!

Keep it steady,
