BrushBoarding to feature at upcoming Melbourne Fitness Show

BrushBoarding to feature at upcoming Melbourne Fitness Show
October 18, 2019

The potential of BrushBoarding as a fun interactive fitness and recreational attraction is to be on display at the upcoming Fitness Show Melbourne at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre on 26th and 27th October.

The patented technology is set to be introduced to the Australian leisure market with the first Brush Ramp asset having recently arrived in Melbourne for the Fitness Show.

BrushBoarding inventor and Director of Extreme Sports Zone Kyle Dent explains “as a first event in this new market with our attraction we are excited to be part of the Fitness Show 2019.

“Having previously worked with Reed Events in the UK we feel that the synergies to debut with this fantastic show will be awesome. Our goal is to have people of all ages enjoy BrushBoarding, we know that getting people active through fun exercise has a positive effect not only on mental health but personal well-being.”

This turnkey interactive attraction can be permanently installed in just about any location.

The manufacturing and design teams have new designs now available where ‘the Original’ Brush Ramp can be carried through double doors and commissioned on site making it ideal for trampoline parks, recreation centres, FECs and facilities where access may be restricted.

Operating with a readily available 32amp three phase power supply and with lightweight designs, major planning and or additional building costs are rarely required.

Looking forward to sharing BrushBoarding’s potential, Dent added “as a board sports enthusiast my entire life, I understand BrushBoarding will never be the real deal, for example, nothing will ever replace the thrills of riding a wave in the ocean, street skating down car parks or boarding in powder. BrushBoarding is just a fun, fitness focused alternative for all ages and abilities.”
