A group of windsurfers are looking to try iceboarding this winter. Does anybody have an old Freeskate in their basement that they would like to get rid of?

I have a Woodie I'd be willing to part with. A much more refined design than the freeskate. You can get a glimpse of them in action here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=957HSTEvSSc

PM me if you are interested.

I have several Paul Mindnich built Freeskates in my garage attic.

Looks super fun. Where do you buy ice blades anyway? I could probably make the board part myself pritty easily, I guess the only down side to these are the fact you need really flat snow free ice. But i may just use my snowboard this winter https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://lat168.lv/2012/02/01/how-to-attach-windsurfing-sail-to-snowboard/&ved=2ahUKEwintY_w2uHeAhWC3FMKHVI4CBQQFjAWegQIARAB&usg=AOvVaw2QeSA8MZF9MU7-SsBAM6AJ

Will see how well it goes on a snowboard

I think there is a place to buy blades, I'm not sure where though. I made a snow rig way back, it didn't work, too much drag. Ice sailing is great, but you never know if the conditions will occur.

Ice is usually pretty flat Wink and you can go in a light snow, but it is amazing how tough it can be to get good ice and more than a breath of wind before an impending dump!

Some winters you sail a lot, some not at all.

Oh man....getting all twitchy

It's really so funny to hear so much newbie-type questioning for one of the most obscure and surreal and aesthetic sports out there

If you think foiling is a thing.....All I can say is that Crazyfingers and I would agree that the enticement of foiling is that it almost reproduces the sensation of ice sailing....but so far it doesn't surpass the ssssshhhhh noise or glide.


There's a lot of ifs ands and what have you's about it..safety.. crashes and weather...but it is pretty awesome, and I'm stoked for whatever season there will be.....There's a facebook group

Atlas...don't waste your time on a snowboard....Get blades from Rick (above)...and find someone who knows what they are doing in your area
