Introduction: SkateBoard Buggy/Ride-On Roller Thingy

Picture of SkateBoard Buggy/Ride-On Roller Thingy

This is a little SkateBoard Buggy/Ride-On Roller Thingy that I decided to make. I had a skateboard that I never used, some plywood and a frisbee. Soon I was building and building. Sorry, i didn't take pictures as i was building it because I didn't know it was going on Instructables. So here it is.

THE WOOD IS SCREWED ONTO THE BOARD EVEN THOUGH U CANT SEE THE SCREWS!!!

Step 1: Attaching the Foot Rest

In this step you need to get a skateboard. Make sure you can sit on it and ride it sitting down. Then find a piece of wood and screw it onto the front as shown.

Step 2: The Handle

Now find a piece of wood that is a little shorter than the foot hold, and attach it as shown.

Step 3: The Seat

Now find a frisbee and cut about a third of it off. Then screw it into the back of the board. This is your seat.

Step 4: How to Ride It

Riding it is simple. Sit on the seat (DUH! XD), put your feet on the foot holder, and grab the handles, wrapping your arms around the outside of your legs. Then find a hill and Ride your contraption down. Turning is as simple as Pushing down on the same side arm and leg and leaning. A good tip is to loosen your trucks so you can turn easier. The position looks awkward, but once you try you will realize that it is really easy.

Step 5: DECORATE IT!

DECORATE IT! I used duct tape, but you can use whatever you want! Eventually I will spray paint the whole thing and replace the wheels and bearings.

This looks like something I built when I was a kid, it was essentially a snow dish bolted to a skate board... I should make some more of those.....

thats interesting a snow dish sounds like it would work better because you could turn better. also it wouldnt brake as easily as the frisbee (it broke after 2 days of use)

check out my street luge. or look up professional street luge

This wasnt supposed to mimic a street luge, nor be a proffesional ride on. this was just for fun

that does look like it would be a blast to ride, of course you have to live in an area with hills...nicely done
