Introduction: Street Carver

This is how to build a street carver. Me and a friend built this when we had nothing to do. It's sort of like a Ripstik but it doesn't bend in the middle. Its, kind of hard to ride in the beginning, but its still fun!

Step 1: Parts

This is what you need to make it:

skate board
casters (2)
drill and bits
screwdriver (star head)
needle nose pliers
any kind of lubrication
grip tape (optional)

Step 2: Taking It Apart

To take apart the skateboard you need the pliers and screwdriver. Take off the trucks but KEEP THE NUTS AND BOLTS -you will need them later.

Step 3: Wheels

To put the wheels on, measure how big the holes are on the base of the casters and get a drill-bit a little bit smaller than that.

Drill four holes in the middle of where the trucks were so you can screw the caster in there.

Step 4: Now Screw

Now screw the casters into the board and make sure the head of the screw is on the caster side. Then put the bolt on the top. Do this on both sides and then......

Step 5: FINISHED!

YOU ARE DONE!!!!!

If you have any suggestions about this idea, please put them in the comments box.

Thanks!

Step 6: Have Fun

Have fun and don't blame me if you fall sometimes!

    would adding a wedge under the front swivel so it is tilted back towards the board improve on the handling? looking at the ripstick /waveboard designs they both seem to have this. Me? i have a flowboard. In a small part of wales that manages to have no hills. d'oh.
