Welcome to the Instructables eBook, Build it. Hack it. Skate it! 

Skateboarding is, and has always been, DIY to the core.  Every serious skater has built their own boards, and there's no better ramp or grind rail than the ones you make yourself. Whether you're new to skateboarding or have been skating for years, these projects will help you learn new skills and take your experience to the next level. 

The Instructables editors have chosen some of our best do-it-yourself skateboarding projects to educate and inspire you to make great things with easily-available tools.
