I have read you post.  It sounds fun.  I am not sure that I could do it in the bathtub.  (hehe)  Also, not too many oceans in the Memphis area.  I have been able to run, so I have been utilizing your theory by turning my head from side to side while viewing the horizon.  Thanks for the tip.

Well my main goal is to get back to snowboarding. I am really curious on how my abilities will be when I get back out there. It probably wont be until next season though.  I have a feeling that in snowboarding (among other board sports) a lot of you balance is vestibular since you touch sensitivity and vision are somewhat obscured.

Great thing about standup is that you can do it on a pond if you want. A nice sized lake is great. Fastest growth in the sport right now is inland.

I'd be very cautious about snowboarding. I'm a two planker myself. I've skiied my whole life. Despite the fact that my balance is now pretty good, and dizziness and vertigo mostly a thing of the past I still haven't been back on the slopes. You've significantly upped your chances of meeting a tree regardless of how you feel. The tree always wins!
