vdoo 540x392 Vew Do 20th Anniversary | Zippy
It’s Vew-Do’s 20th anniversary and to commemorate it they are releasing some new versions of classic Vew-Do shapes with traditional African artwork meant to recall the balance board’s heritage in East Africa. Yep its a little known fact that balance boarding in America was started by a dude named Stanley Washburn who made one for his daughter after seeing them in the Takoradi jungle in the 1940’s. He passed the knowledge onto Brew Moscarello who started Vew-Do in 1990. The Zippy (above) has been in the line since the company’s inception and is their top intermediate board. Stay tuned for more on Vew-Do’s 20th anniversary releases.
