"The Bongo Board has been updated to mimmick snowboarding. The Bongo's mojo (and patent) resides in its fulcrum, a unique barrel shaped roller made out of two halves that can twist independently, making the deck terribly unstable. Instead of only being able to teeter-totter, the sloped ends of the barrel also encourage using toe and heel pressure just as you would the hill. What this means is that if you press your toes against the edge and shift your weight just so, you will find yourself facing the opposite direction, having done an inhouse fakey. We hear professional snowboarders can jump and spin their Bongo Boards as if they were riding a half-pipe. You however should settle for holding yourself upright without the assistance of a spotter"
