Instructables user wolfsshade used hardware store parts to make this homemade ripstik (a center-swiveling skateboard). Looks nice, like more of a skateboard than futuristic hovercraft.

    The Ripstik Caster Board continues to dominate the urban landscape as THE Skateboard alternative… or is it Snowboarding on cement? The inclined caster trucks and pivoting deck provide a magic carpet like glide over concrete without pushing!

    Choose among unique deck colors: Blue, Silver, Green, Red and Pink.

    No Wonder the RipStik® Caster Board was awarded Outdoor Toy of the Year.
