This Man Attached 4 Leaf Blowers to a Skate Deck to Make a Hoverboard

If you don’t have the $10,000 + to drop on a Hendo Hoverboard, you can make this DIY hoverboard as Texan Ryan Craven did.

Ryan took four gutted leafblowers, a sheet of plywood, skate deck, some gorilla tape, and made a hoverboard. One of the benefits of his board is that copper flooring is not required. It seems like this hoverboard has a way to go before someone can control it more.

The disclaimers here are the same as the rest of the “hoverboards” of 2014: it’s neat, but it’s not going to turn you into Marty McFly. Without any sort of friction between you and the ground, you’re not so much steering the board as you are standing atop it as it glides wherever the hell it wants. With that said, I’d totally ride this thing until the batteries were dead and/or I fell off and broke both my wrists.

Air is used to push the board off the ground whereas the Hendo Board uses a magnetic force to separate the board from the copper ground. Due to the price of copper, the air propulsion system may be a better way. Ryan’s version needs a little more work.
