howtoons ice skate board

Need some winter excitement? Maybe not the safest idea, but a neat one nonetheless, Howtoons shows how you can pop off the wheels on your skateboard and replace them with filed strips of steel and threaded rod to make a gnarly Iceboard (personally, I’d add some toe straps to that bad boy for stability). Master of crazy mods and MAKE Heirloom Tech columnist Tim Anderson, inspired by the Iceboard and Eric Wilhelm’s rad Ice Proa (Polynesian ice canoe) tutorial, even takes it a step further to make the Kite Ice Butt Board, complete with video:

Goli Mohammadi

I’m senior editor at MAKE and have worked on MAKE magazine since the first issue. I’m a word nerd who particularly loves to geek out on how emerging technology affects the lexicon as a whole. When not fawning over perfect word choices, I can be found on the nearest mountain, looking for the ideal alpine lake or hunting for snow to feed my inner snowboard addict.

The maker movement provides me with endless inspiration, and I love shining light on the incredible makers in our community. The specific beat I cover is art, and I’m a huge proponent of STEAM (as opposed to STEM). After all, the first thing most of us ever made was art.
