Did you ever thought about swinging with your friend? It's even possible to make it yourself. Just follow the steps and you can make your own duo-swing with a few bamboo-sticks.
Step 1: Materials and Tools
Rope for joining the bamboo: 65m
Rope for carrying 2 people of 75kg: f.i. Nylon ø 10mm
2 iron 8 chaped hooks
Step 2: Preparation of the Big Bamboo Sticks
Saw the length in 2 pieces of 65cm and 2 pieces of 30cm
Drill a hole of ø 20mm in the middle of the 2 pieces of 65 cm
Make a small notch everywhere you want to fix the small bamboo stick
Make sure the big bamboo stick is completely hollow

Cut 22 pieces of 38cm
Make a notch at 2 cm at the end of each stick with the multitool

Knot very well the 2 ends at the 30cm bamboo stick
Form a triangel with the 2 ends of the rope through the 65cm bamboo stick as shown and knot them very well with a square knot
