|Pro Guard Hockey Slide Board||
Lowest Price Guarantee
The Pro Guard Hockey Slide Board is a great off-ice training device to improve your skating stride's quickness, power and stamina. The Slide Board takes less than a minute to set up; simply remove and unroll the board from the carrying bag, slip on the included slide booties over your shoes and you're ready to start improving your stride.
Unlike jogging or cycling, the Slide Board targets the hard-to-work muscles that move a player from side to side. The core muscles are also consistently targeted because they are trying to keep the player stabilized throughout the entire process. This side to side motion is considered a low-impact exercise since the foot never loses contact with the board, meaning a lot less stress is put on joints compared to jumping and landing exercises.
The board is 6' by 20" and features a non-slip material on the backside that helps to keep it in place on any flat surface (concrete, tile, carpet, etc.). To work on stickhandling and your stride at the same time, pick up an EZ Puck Shooting Board to place in front of the Slide Board for the ultimate off-ice workout.

- 2 - Slide Booties to go over any size shoe
- Does NOT include shoes
- 1 - Carry bag for mobility and storage
Comments: Paul, I used some similar one in the past. You need to apply either one of those: liquid floor wax, Pledge furniture polish or silicon lubricant spray.

Comments: I was excited to get this product as I was looking for something to help work on lateral movement and balance. After the first two uses (approximately 15 minutes each) I thought the slide board was living up to everything I had hoped for and more. However, during the third use sliding became far more difficult and I started sticking near the end of my movement. Upon investigating the surface the slide board has already worn down to the point where the middle, main slide area was dull and virtually impossible to slide on. I feel incredibly disappointed having paid for a product that I literally got 45 minutes (three uses) out of. I don't blame Inline & Ice Warehouse as they're a great business, but I am beyond unhappy with the product. If anyone has any tips on how to make it "slick" again, please help me out.
