Intro: Lawn Boarding

Are you dreaming of snowboarding in the summer? Now you can. All you need is a driving lawn mower and a smooth bottem sled with holes to tie a piece of rope through.

Step 1: Preperation

First, tie a rope between the holes on your sled. make sure that the rope is centered and make sure that you have a 4-7ft of rope coming away from the sled.

Step 2: Connect

tie the 4-7ft piece of rope to the back of your mower make sure to tie it tight.

Step 3: Operation

Start up the mower and shift to the fastest speed and swerve occationaly( just for fun). Enjoy.


1.) Don't drive the mower over the rope it can tangle in it's axel
and is very hard to get out. Belive me i know it has happened twice.

2.)I am not responceable for anyone who attempts this with an ATV, car, or go-kart.

3.) Be cautous of what you drive over.

other than this i hope you enjoy your new "sport" (:

    ? why is everyone saying take the blade off?? lawn mowers have you choose whether you want it on or off it will stay stationary of its selected off.

    Be sure to take the blade off first. Until 2 months ago my mom used to work for the Shriners Hospital for Children Twin Cities, and used to see kids that got ran over by lawn mowers (the broken bones, not the gorry stuff). Good idea, just remember to take the blade off.

    i agree, it is extremely supid. If the blade doesn't get you half a ton of steel pinning you down certainly will. It is stupid if you want to "lawn board" just do it down a hill.

    Come one people! this isn't that freakin dangerous... It's a SLOW lawn mower. This thing can't get enough speed for you to catch up if it suddenly stops. (though 7 ft is a little short.... try 15?) And paul, I'm really sorry about your friend, but where in this instructable are we talking about driving on an incline? Using your logic, we should never use riding lawn mowers even to mow the lawn.

    Your right, we shouldn't. You should have seen how many kids my mom took care of at the Shriners who flipped riding lawn mowers

    AAAAAW Go put a helmet on ya panzy.... If we did things your way we'd never have any fun doing anything and we'd never get any work done. Don't forget to put your kneepads on before you leave for work, you might trip on the way to the car!! maybe we should never leave the house again!?!

    This "pansy" will live another day to tell the story of the "Lawn Boarding" fad that swept the nation. RIP uberchoob, RIP!

    Also, if you're into tinkering with your mower, remove the governor to give it the stones to really get you going.
