Skateboard Swing

Use an old skateboard to create this super easy swing with grippy surface!
Even though I’m a thirty-something girl, you can still meet me swinging at the playground. I’m a huge fan of all kinds of swings, be it Swings Around A Fire Pit or Family Swing, but the ones I love the most are those hung on long ropes. As you may already know, I’m also hooked on upcycling ideas, that’s why this hacky Skateboard Swing is an obvious choice.
