    This VR skateboard simulator is surprisingly simple.

    Skip forward to about 1:28 to get a bit more about crafting the sounds and actual construction of the skateboard simulator.

    That is pretty cool, and mechanically at least pretty simple. Skateboarding wouldn't be super high on my list of things I would want to make a sim for, but still on my wish list!

    I think the basic board part could be adapted for skiing and surfing as well, which would give it a bit more scope game wise.

    After about 10 years since the last time I was on a skateboard, I thought I'd re-live my youth and get the old skateboard out.

    It is now in the back of the shed and now I am limping.

    Hello,
    Time to take your board out and take a ride :) I'm skating for over 10 years now, but since building my simulator, I had not so much time to skate. Maybe a good Idea to build one :D
    But it's more a longboard simulator, because you are only pushing and rolling around like with a longboard. Skateboard means for me jumps, grinds and flips. :)
