DIY Slide Gloves for Longboarding

Introduction: DIY Slide Gloves for Longboarding

About: I study Aerospace Engineering at RMIT, in the hope that one day I will be able to bring about the return of intercontinental airship cruises. Until then I like to make stuff in the shed, and surf instructables

Tired of doing coleman slides down a hill and shredding your hands to the bone, but find it unreasonable and immoral to pay $1,000,000 or more for Loaded slide gloves? Then this instructable is for you! I know there are plenty of instructables on slide gloves already, but this one is a video, and has cool background music.

Edit: The kind folks at Instructables and Gorilla kindly accepted Australians as eligible for prizes, so vote away, and help me get at all that glue and tape!

    I've had some trouble with glue and gloves. so what i did instead was take a blow torch (like the ones used by plumbers) and melt the top of the cutting board. from there just press the glove into the board and wait for it to cool down. it has adhered better than any glue i've tried thus far.
