A nice activity is to ice skate when there's an opportunity. But the equipment is rather expensive according to me. I figured out that if you buy a couple of Inlines an mount them on a traditional ice skate profile you will save a lot of money.
Fore this project you will need:
. Ice skates profile
. A pair of Inlines
. Some screws and bolts
. Angle iron (see pictures)
. Small piceses of wood
The mentioned items, you can bye on ebay or at any similar sites. Maybe you have it at home..
The total cost fore me for the components was less than 200 swedish crowns (30 US. dolars) including a pair of inline skates.
Step 1: Disassembly
Step 2: Mounting the Angle Iron
Step 3: Mounting to the Skate-profile
Step 6: Get Out and Try
I also have a great interest in ice sailing, especially Kitewing-sailing (maybe I will post a instructable in that subject too). The skates worked just fine also in that application.
Please let me know what you think about the instructable and if you have something to add.
If you are interested Kitewing-sailing, I recommend you to watch a clip in which I sail my wing on a wonderful day with good weather conditions. http://youtu.be/w4xJsuM-1mI
