Introduction: How to Iceboard/ Ice Surf

In this Instructable I will show you how to ice board(a cross between skateboarding and snow boarding) using only a skateboard.
ice boarding is all most guaranteed to get you covered in snow, so wear appropriate stuff.

Step 1: Get a Board!

To iceboard you will first need a board, so get a skateboard,one thats not broken. Take the wheels and trucks(metal bits) off from the bottom. And there's your board. Thats mine in the pic, (I cant make image notes)

Step 2: Find Some Snow......and Go!

Take your board and go to a hill with snow/ice (ice is best)on the side. Make a mound of hard snow at the bottom like a ramp (optional). Climb to the top, sit or stand on your board (standing is more painfull if you fall) and launch yourself down the slope.
There are some pics at the bottom.

Wouldn't you need to wax your board somehow or get the bottom slick?

You could probably add cheap bindings by wrapping duct tape loosely around the top.

this is cheaper/a bit harder (might fall off,no bindings)

Just to let you know there is something exactly like this and more authentic than just a skate deck. It's called snowskating. The decks have more curved nose and tails, foam grip for when the board is wet, and ridges on the bottom of the deck for more control and less sliding. You should look it up, I ride a Premier Snowskate.
