A rola bola is a two-piece balance board consisting of a board on top of a cylinder. The board can slide across the cylinder as the cylinder rolls from side to side. A person standing on the board keeps it balanced on the cylinder so the board doesn't touch the ground.

If you turn the cylinder so it rolls forward and backward instead of left and right, it's a transverse rola bola. A double rola bola has one cylinder that rolls side to side and another that rolls forward and backward, with one stacked on top of the other.
