Hi all,

I can't be the only one. I really want a moon board but I don't have the height where I live. My ceilings are 2.5m high. The moon board requires a 3.15m ceiling.

Currently the 40 degree part of the wall is 3.6m. I can only fit in 2.78m losing almost 1m of board and the last move of all the moon board climbs (maybe 2).

Is it still worth it. Has anyone else got a stubby moon board? It is quite expensive to not get the full benefit.

I think there's some discussion about that on the Power Company podcast on the Moonboard...

- The idea of a moon board is that it is a moon board. Anything shorter / steeper / narrower etc. just isn't. Shirley
- Make a steeper board to make the most of your lower ceiling height (gives you a longer board and therefore longer problems.

I made a 'stubby' moonboard in my garage. I shortened the kick board and made the handhold rows 18cm, rather than 20cm and missed one row off.

With regards to the training, I still use the moon app but take the grades with a pinch of salt and if you're imaginative you can still make hard problems work and get what you want out of it.

Hope that helps!
