Being initially tempted by cheaper alternatives, I decided to bite the bullet and invest in the Elite Kickboard. And I am so pleased I did!
Even before taking the wrapping off (which in adequate detail describes what core groups are activated when using the board) the board just oozes quality. My husbands first response was: "This feels just like an expensive body-board...!"
The texture and feel of the board is just lovely; solid without being heavy and so easy to hold onto when doing kicking-drills up and down the pool. When comparing it to the foam boards offered at my local pool, there is just no comparison.
Currently recovering from a shoulder injury, position in the water is really paramount for me in my training and this board ticks all the boxes!
Don't hesitate - buy it! You will not be disappointed!
