Build a longboard out of wooden water skis

Since my first introduction to longboarding and buying my first Sector 9 Longboard , I've added a few more boards to my collection, to share the joy of longboarding with my friends.

Everybody who went boarding with me absolutely loved it, and would usually ask me how much a longboard costs. An average price for a brand name longboard is about $150-200. You can always opt for something cheaper like this Krown Wood Sunset Longboard for just $ 55 from Amazon.

Or you can make a cheap, cool, personalized longboard yourself ....

Jeff King, host of Fuel TV’s series “Built to Shred ” shows how to craft a longboard out of a wooden water ski.

See step-by-step instructions here...

Though, it looks like a good/cheap alternative, don't forget that you'll still have to buy your own trucks, bearings, and wheels. And those are not cheap ( RANDAL Trucks, Wheels,Bearings $99).

Plus a used slalom water ski would cost at least $ 20 even on Craigslist.
