Introduction: Paper Clip Skateboard

Picture of Paper Clip Skateboard

I'm going to teach you how to make a paper clip skateboard. My mom said I couldn't use the camera so the pictures are all in paint. SORRY!!! The board is good for resturants and school.

Step 1: Materials

What you need...

- A Paperclip (works best with big ones)
- Your Teeth (sorry Grampa!!!)
- Your Hands
- Your Index and Middle Fingers

Step 2: Marking Your Spot.

Right were the Inner-Paper Clip bends and the sraight parts end , mark in your mind. It will make both ends even.

Step 3: Bending the Ends

Put your thumb on 1 of the spots you marked in your Nogin. Bite the ends and lift up. Do the same with the other side. If there not even do it again lightly. The angle is up to you, but it should be sort of high so you can ollie (I still can't on the P.C.B. but on Tech Decks I can).

Step 4: The Tricks

The tricks I can do so far are... well I can only really do 1
(pop-suvit) but sometimes I can accidentaly do weird tricks like 'Varials, 360 Flips, and sometimes Kickflips and Heelflips.

Step 5: Your Done

Don't do this. It will damage your teeth!

I can do a backflip, thats pretty much it besides an ollie :)


SkaterGirl (author)2009-03-09

my fingers kinda stick to the 'board' so I can do ollies and when I'm in the air I can flick it and I do kickflips or heelflips but if my fingers didn't I couldn't do a thing

Hudmaster (author)SkaterGirl2009-03-18

I love it, way better than those silly "tech decks"

Stickylol (author)oomlout2008-12-06

Tech Decks aren't silly, they just aren't good when your at a restaurant or at school because they make a lot of noise. The paperclip board is mostly meant for school and restaurants because they don't make noise like Tech Decks and other fingerboards.
