Forget Horses – Use A Skateboard In Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

In Zelda Tears of the Kingdom you can pretty much build anything. Personally, I cruise through Hyrule on a skateboard. This is how you can build one for yourself!

How To Build A Skateboard In Zelda: Tears of the Kingdom

Building a skateboard is easy. All you must do is to fuse a cart to any shield. If you can't find a cart anywhere lying around Hyrule, you can also get it from one of the Zonai Device Dispensers. Not all of these gumball machines carry carts, though. You'll find the right dispensers at the following locations:

  • Lanayru Great Spring Sky (2913, 0510, 0951)
  • West Necluda Sky (1349, -2144, 0585)
  • Akkala Highlands Sky (3748, 1538, 1157)

After trading some Zonai Charges, you will end up with a cart. Now, just place it on the ground and fuse it to one of your shields. And there you have it! Your very own Zonai skateboard. To actually ride it, just shield surf down a hill.

If you don't know how to shield surf, you'll find a quick guide down below
