Mounting a skateboard on a WII FIT balance board
I thought the WIIFIT needed something so I mounted a skate board on it, so I made this plate/board it fits over the WIIFIT and is attached with Velcro all parts bought at Home Depot, I included the part#s, cost $20 - $30 give or take. I take no responsibility for your use of this construct.
THIS MOD WILL CHANGE THE CENTER OF GRAVITY OF THE WIIFIT AND IT IS POSSIBLE TO LOSE YOUR BALANCE, AND FALL OFF, SO USE CAUTION AND CLEAR THE AREA OF OBSTICLES.
I have been using this for about 2 days and writing this to so as to take a rest, have tried it with Shaun White Road Trip and it works well I think, tried it with Snowboard Riot seemed so-so but the controls are different, would like to see how it works with SKATEIT. I get WIISKI AND SNOWBOARD this week see how it works. I used it with Shaun White then took it off to see if there was a difference and without it the WIIFIT seemed to not respond as well, rather sedate
