Way back when SkateFurther first started we had a forum thread about homemade mudflaps. We even ran a competition for the best designed ones! Here’s Eric’s ‘How-To’ on making mudflaps! Thanks Eric!
Mudflaps made of Ikea cutting Boards.
30 minutes or 1 hour, depends on your skills.
Things you need:
1 Ikea cutting board (Drälla)
1 industrial scissor or sharp knife
1 Lighter/ creme-brulé burner / gas stove
1 measurement tool.
1 piece of paper
1 piece of cartboard
2 pieces of electrical wire
Easy to make.
They work superb in rainy weather.
Fits in backpack and doesn’t need much space.
Attaching to the board within 5 seconds!
Weight 190 grams.
No other colors.. so it’s red or green!
With regards, Eric

Cheers! Plenty more to come!
I made a set for my G|Bomb Push/Pump board. Took all of 45 minutes. Used elastic cord. Didn’t even make a template from cardboard, just took the measurements and cut out the shape, then fine tuned it. Can’t wait to try it out. Thanks!
