Which slide board is used there? And is it one of the many I have seen that cost WAY more than what I can afford? :

Really would like to pick one of these up to use, as my conditioning is just not what I would like it to be, due to not being able to get to the rink more than ~2 times a week.

build one yourself for < $20 with an 8' x 2' (or 1 1/2") piece of melamine and a couple of scrap 2x4s on either end. get some foam to buffer the edges of the 2x4s and make them softer for your feet and stick some on the bottom to prevent slipping. done it a couple of times. isn't very mobile but you can't beat the price.

Yeah the slide boards are pretty pricey. I know hockeyshot has a decent one for just over $100, still expensive unless you use it a lot. I would recommend trying to build your own first and then if you love it, buy a real one

I did that with plyo boxes and eventually bought some good ones.

If anyone is thinking of buying a slideboard you can always grab the $10 off coupon from the sidebar on our site, takes a bit of the edge off.
