SkateBoard Buggy/Ride-On Roller Thingy

Introduction: 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!!!

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

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)
