Old Snowboard into a new deck


#1

So someone gave me a kids size snowboard…

I was thinking of chopping it down into a longboard

Good idea…bad idea?

Anyone ever try it?


#2

do it! we need more unique builds


#3

I need a shape …


#4

You can ask this guy for tips :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:


#5

Hahaha…maybe I should make a board out of wine bottles lol


#6

build it out of grass


#7

Ok this guy is to much, seems to be a happy fellow. 4 trucks, 6 wheels.

Getting some inspiration @Michaelinvegas ?


#8

Lol @Blasto where do you find these nuts? Lol


#9

doo it!
where is whitepony? he’ll tell you not to do it because its not the proper intended function of this device.


#10

It’s not a bad idea at all, you can still do trick with it.


#11

Well I’m planning to cut it down to a shorter size to help reduce the sag … Not sure how short it needs to be so I don’t have worry abt the enclosure scrapping the ground…

So I’m guessing it will need to be short or I need to add a support to give it some stiffness

This is the a :point_up_2:t2: snowboard that someone cut … I’ll need to make it this shape to avoid cutting out wheel wells like the dude above in the video


#12

haha, actually I love the videos - some quirky people on this earth :joy:


#13

@Michaelinvegas Haha, great minds think alike. I’ve been toying with this idea off and on for about a month or two, but haven’t decided whether it’s worth the trouble. I didn’t even think about the kids board. You could always put the enclosure on top…

I made a longboard out of a winterstick snowboard about 15 years ago. It’s still going strong, I cut it into a long oval shape with a jigsaw.
Very flexy though for an electric build.


#15

How long did you make it @bigben ? The one in the picture seems very short.


#16

Man that guys is unique…


#17

Mine is 45 inches nose to tail. I’m probably 200lbs and is a nice cruiser board but certainly too flexible for a lectric deck.


If I remember rightly the insert width was perfect for drilling straight through to put the first two bolts in.


#18

Nice @bigben

Yeah looks like I’ll need to shorten it up or figure out something to stiffen it up


#19

@Michaelinvegas Get some square steel tubing from the hardware store and bolt it to the board along the bottom edges like a grab rail.


#20

Good idea!!!
