I feel you. My balance is pretty bad and my foot coordination worse. I trip on my shadow -.-

It was very easy and difficult at the same time... All you need to do is set magnets so that they can support your weight and   make it that there is a magnetic field as the ground. The two magnets of the hover board and the ground will repel each other, and balance is very important, other wise you will do what I did. Ha ha ha ha, still, if you were wondering, I fell off with grace and style... 8)
