- THE BLOOM BOARD STORY -

THE GENESIS OF A SMALL PROJECT THAT HAS EVERYTHING TO BECOME BIG

THE CREATOR clicks

      It all started during a trip to Morocco, in a small village by the sea.

Beyond the beauty of the place, I went there to do a yoga and surfing retreat.

 

Within the surf house, a wooden plank was placed on a log, an object which was still unknown to me, on which the surfers chained the tricks with ease!  

Curious, I took my courage in both hands and tried to get on this famous board but it was a failure!

I found myself with all four irons in the air on the ground in barely 4 seconds!

 

Determined, I swallowed my pride, got up and tried to get on the board again, with the help of someone to understand the pendulum mechanics and avoid another fall.

 

Back in France I tried to get one, but I made two observations: exorbitant prices or brands on the other side of the world and not necessarily clean. Already in an eco-thinking buying process, I preferred the option “I'll do it myself”.  

 

It was at this moment that the adventure began.

The adventure begin !

An encouraging environment

Bloom Board's story is also (and above all) the story of friends and family who believed in her and who were the first followers and buyers of her boards.

 

At first, it must be admitted that they were not very successful and which today follow a well-honed manufacturing process with hand-made production and entirely designed in eco-responsible materials!

that makes sense

 

Don't have time to go surfing, kitesurfing, skateboarding, snowboarding? Do you not live near a spot where this is possible?

You can still train with a balance board!

The  balance board is having  the sensations of gliding and balance. Allow the deep muscles of the legs and upper body to be used to stabilize your body, continue to work and strengthen yourself in the practice of your favorite sport. And this, regardless of the weather conditions, anywhere, anytime! 

And concretely?
