    A mate of mine owns the local bmx shop and we have made this, got skateboard trucks upside down on a snowboard with a bmx attached to them, We're forecast snow tomorrow night.

    This is either going to work really well or not at all I think, in theory it should though right?

    in theory, but you should do what they guys did and have the front end detahced from the back so that you don't have completely static bars and will have more control than just carving down the slope

    Yeah but they're still standing up so it's a scooter really, but we did want to do that but didn't want to cut the snowboard in half, if it doesn't work then that could be next.

    And it's either going to carve like a dream or it's going to grip and throw you right off it, if so then it's going to have to be shredded straight down the hill

    What's booking Sambo? Snow lingo? hopefully good

    Good stuff mate, well we're forecast a whooping 5-10cm of the white stuff and we've got a massive hill but the gradient is extreme to say the least

    It did work, but got broken, my mates decided to take it out on Saturday night pissed up, he tried riding down a slide in a park and broke the truck, so yesterday we took it to his shop and cut the board in half and turned the back half round so the kick of the board was facing forward, this worked much better but the seat came out of the post, so you had stand on it.

    I'll upload a video later, of my mate on it, tried building an igloo too but it got too cold and dark before we finished it.

    Yeah mate, quite a lot of the country got it I think, airports getting shut etc, admittedly the majority of it has gone now
