Whether you fall or not, snowboarding is a high impact sport, and the more you push yourself to become a better rider, the more you slam in the process. The Tiger Tail lineup is the best range of massage tools an athlete could hope to travel with – like taking a personal deep tissue masseuse with you wherever you go. 
 
The Tiger Ball saved me a few times last winter. My first day filming in Alaska, first run of the trip, an avalanche broke off above me in the crux of the run and blindly ejected me four stories off a cliff and onto my back. I picked myself up and rode to the bottom of the run, and as the adrenaline pulsing through me began to shut down, my back and neck immediately stiffened up and began to lightly spasm. 
 
After the guide did a little touch and feel on my spine, I decided to take the rest of the day off. I went straight back to the hotel and started stretching and leaning against the wall with the Tiger Ball to prevent my back from completely seizing up. The rope makes it easy to move the ball around and pinpoint all the knotted up spots on your back, neck, shoulders, and hips. You just lean as hard as you can bear into the hot spots, breath, and try to imagine the muscle melting. Two days later I was still generally sore but my back and neck felt good enough to go snowboard again. It turned out to be one of the best days of my winter, and I directly thank the Tiger Ball for keeping me loose enough to go out and preform after what could have been a trip ending bail. 
 
For everything I love to do – snowboarding, surfing, skateboarding, mt. biking –Tiger Tail massage tools keep my body tuned up and ready to send it!!
