Our oldest son was very "into" skateboarding. He would spend hours at the local skate park practicing heal flips, kick flips, dropping in to the half pipe, ollies, nosegrinds, 50-50 grinds, and a slew of other stuff that mean absolutely nothing to me. One thing I do know is that all that stuff is extremely hard on a skateboard! I stopped counting how many boards we went through. Of course, that raised the question: "What to do with all of the old skateboards?" Well, one can make only so many skateboard shelves.
We decided that we would make something that could be enjoyed by everyone, and would be a great way of introducing our young kids to water skiing and snow skiing.
