Hi, This is Frank Costanzo (near Princeton, NJ). I have been skiing for 58 yrs and windsurfing for over 45 years but find that I am not close enough to a great ski resort or excellent windsurfing to enjoy these sports on a regular basis. Halfbiking is a fabulous sport that keeps me in shape for the both sports. It helps to develop excellent leg and core strength while providing a great way to fine tune your balance skills. It only takes a short time to get very comfortable on a Halfbike and then you can advance to perfecting your Halfbike trail riding and slalom skills. I highly recommend Halfbikes for any sport enthusiast looking to add another exciting option. Frank
