Ropeboarding is a blossoming new international sport. Notable groups are Brock Ropeboarding, Fly High Ropeboarding, Adrenaline Ropeboarding, and many more. It originated in Kitchener, Ontario thanks to the Brock Ropeboarding group. Tricks that you can do are similar to skateboarding tricks. Many exist but new ones are being thought up constantly. A few weeks ago, one of my friends did a handstand on the ropeboard (of course, she's a gymnast). It provides for hours of fun with friends, a place for your creativity, and an ab workout that you will feel after your first day. Jump on for a thrill!
This is our ropeboarding video:
Step 1: Getting the Supplies
Rope (Recommended for at least 300 lbs.)
A Climbing Carabiner
A basic understanding of knots
Step 2: Preparing the Board
Next, find the middle of the board and mark it. Measure it lengthwise and widthwise then divide each of those numbers by 2 to find the middle in each direction. Mark it here.
Drill out a hole here about the diameter of your rope. You can also paint it if you want.
Your board is now primed for ropeboarding.
Step 3: Preparing the Rope
Do not cut anything else just yet.
