About

We believe working out should be fun. Something you look forward to. But for millions of people, it just isn’t. That’s why we created MorfBoard. It’s an action sports-inspired fitness system that takes a serious workout and turns it into play.

We come from action sports, so naturally MorfBoard was inspired by iconic, enduring action sports gear: skateboards, snowboards and surfboards. Those boards deliver a perfect, singular experience. We love the perfect, but when it comes to fitness, we need more than singular. 

So we designed a single board that is endlessly versatile and engaging – built to give you an ever-evolving, always kickass experience.

 No matter your fitness level or goal, MorfBoard will help you improve.

Because MorfBoard makes working out fun, it keeps anyone who wants to be fit engaged and moving. It's also a great training tool for action sports athletes who want to improve performance. And it's a perfect way for fitness pros to keep clients engaged while delivering a fun and effective workout.

MorfBoard is the world’s first fitness system designed to seamlessly, rapidly morph from one mode to another. MorfBoard is the only product that allows you to switch from lifting with resistance bands to rolling on a skateboard, bouncing on a rebounder or rocking on a balance board in seconds.

MorfBoard can transform so quickly because of its innovative Morf Modular System (MMS) design. The deck has ports in its center and on its sides. X-Tensions fit into those ports and lock into place. You can switch from X-Tension to X-Tension – mode to mode – quicker than you can catch your breath. 

How MMS works: X-Tensions drop into the locking ports and rotate 90 degrees into position
How MMS works: X-Tensions drop into the locking ports and rotate 90 degrees into position

We’re launching with the Base Package, which includes the MorfBoard deck and the Bounce X-Tension. Three additional X-Tension sets are available: Skate, Balance, and ReBand. MorfBoard will continue to create new X-Tensions in the future. 

The MorfBoard deck comes with the Bounce X-Tension, which gives you what may be the most fun cardio workout on earth. It also provides an unstable surface, which makes fundamental movements like planks and pushups more challenging - and more fun to do. 

This optional X-Tension brings fun and fluidity to movements like lunges, ab rollouts, even hamstring curls. Because it simulates movement along a track, it targets muscles with incredible efficiency. And when you’re done with your workout, you can use it to cruise home.  

This optional X-Tension turns MorfBoard into one of the best balance boards you’ll ever stand on. You can spend hours rocking back and forth and coming up with new tricks and moves. And you can use it to turn otherwise isolated movements into dynamic, full-body exercises. 

The optional ReBand X-Tension brings resistance training to the system, which means you can do the basics: Build your arms, your back, your chest. But the way the bands integrate with the board lets you perform movements that take your workout to a whole new level. 

MorfBoard is intuitive, so you’ll immediately understand how to use it. But we’re with you every step of the way. Our website will offer tons of content for beginners to elites with sports-specific workouts, general fitness, tricks, and play.

Eitan Kramer, Founder and CEO 

Eitan Kramer came up with the MORFboard concept while watching cartoons. The former professional action sports athlete and world record holder had been looking for a way to bring the creativity and fun of action sports to the world of fitness when the idea hit him. He spent the next three years refining his creation. Before forming the company, Eitan was a professional inline halfpipe skater who competed in the first six ESPN X-Games and maintained a top 5 ranking throughout his career. In 1999, he earned a world record for “highest air on a halfpipe.” Since then, he has appeared on ESPN, Fox Sports, and MTV as a host and commentator. The Phi Beta Kappa graduate of UCLA has been a personal trainer for 10 years and is a member of the National Academy of Sports Medicine. Eitan grew up in Manhattan and lives in Los Angeles.

Eric Bergman, Partner and Creative Director

Eric Bergman brings extensive experience in both action sports and product design. He is a veteran entrepreneur who co-founded companies in several industries, including sports, travel, and personal audio. Early in his career, his passion for action sports caught the eye of Fox Racing, where he honed his skills for design and development on everything from apparel to body armor and motorcycle helmets. Eric has also spent more than 10 years in the design consulting world where he formed strategic campaigns and built products for a wide variety of clients. Eric earned a BA in Industrial Design from California College of the Arts in San Francisco in 2002. He grew up in military bases around the world and lives in the Bay Area.


Risks and challenges

MORFboard has a talented team of industrial designers and mechanical engineers, and we’re already working with our manufacturers to deliver an awesome product.

We’ve buttoned up as much as we can, but until we have a ready-to-go MORFboard in our hands, we won’t know what – if any – minor tweaks are going to have to be made. We like to play, but when it comes to our gear, we don’t mess around. So we won’t ship until we’re convinced the MORFboard can withstand the ass-kicking you’re going to give it (and it’s going to give you). Our timeline includes a revisions period, but there's a chance it will take a little longer than we think.
