Grass Surfing





Introduction: Grass Surfing

*Note: This instructable has nothing to do with any sort of illegal drug.

We live in Georgia and haven't seen any snow yet...

So my neighbor came up with this brilliant idea: grab a skateboard deck and head for the hills - literally - and thus, Grass Surfing was born.

This instructable will show you the art and sport that is Grass Surfing.

Step 1: What You Need

Grass Surfing is a relatively "new" sport, and the technology needed to participate is rather simple, as the sport itself has not yet been discovered by large companies to make it seem more complicated than it actually is. That being said, to Grass Surf, you will need:

1) A Skateboard Deck you can just take the trucks off an old skateboard, or get a cheap skateboard from WalMart and take the trucks off, or, if you plan on being a real hardcore Grass Surfer, you can even buy a brand spankin' new fancy deck from your local skate shop.

2) Grass this can typically be found growing almost anywhere, such as your yard. The best kind is the variety which makes its home on a hill, a prime location sought by professional grass surfers and amateurs alike.

3) A Basic Sense of Skateboarding If you don't know much about skateboarding stance, check this instructable out: How to Skateboard (Step 2)

Step 2: Now You're Ready

1. Okay, now that you've got the gear, you'll need to go to your prime grass surfing location, the hill.

2. Place your board so that it is facing directly downhill, and push off.

3. Let gravity do the rest.

4. When you're real skilled like me, you can even invent your own tricks.

And of course, the most important thing is to just go out there and have fun shredding grass and getting air, err, ground.

So get out there, have fun, and good luck!

it also works best if u caveman onto the board right before u go down

does this work on ALIVE and green grass?!?!?

that is what grass looks like in GA, i live there. that grass looks healthy compared to the avarage grass in GA.

whatever so do i and it looks nothing like that except for in winter somtimes

Nice. This reminds me of sandboarding in Peru. The pictures are from dunes around Huacachina. While sandboarding certainly resembles snowboarding, it's quite a bit slower no matter how much you wax the board.


that looks like so much fun i cant even see

i sandboard too, and i build my own boards. its really fun.

can you please tell me how?
