At first, you need to remove the trucks attached under the skateboard. Without doing this, you can’t insert ropes/ fishing lines in it. For removing the trucks you need the help of a screwdriver. The screwdriver will remove the four screws for each trucks, and thus the trucks will be detached from the board.

If you have decided to vertically hang your boards on the wall, then you have to insert fishing lines in the screw holes of the board. You can use shoelaces instead of fishing lines. But I would recommend using fishing lines for better service. You can use scissors for cutting fishing lines or ropes.
On the other hand, if you want to hang skateboard horizontally, I think you should use ropes instead of fishing lines and insert the ropes in the screw holes.
After inserting the fishing lines or ropes on the board, you have to tie a knot. Remember, fishing lines are a bit slippery, so make sure to tie the knot in such a way that it holds the board perfectly on the wall. As you are hanging this vertically, you just need one knot to be tied.
But if you are going to hang the board horizontally, then you have to insert ropes on both sides of the board and tie a knot between the two ropes of both sides.
Now, it’s time to turn off your attention towards the wall of your room. Decide on which wall you are going to hang your skateboards. And if you have a number of boards, so you have to decide the distance between each boards going to hung on the wall.
Take the ruler or measuring tape to decide the place and measure the distance between boards. You can use pencils to draw a sign where you going to hang the boards. These marks will help you to put the nails on the wall according to your demand.
Now take the nails in your hand and also the hammer to set it on the wall. Following the marks, you have drawn on the wall before you have put the nails with the help of a hammer. If you are not skilled in using a hammer, you can use an electric drill machine to insert screws on the walls.
After completing the above steps, your skateboard is ready for hanging. According to the nails or screws set on the wall, put the fishing lines of the boards in the nails. It will hang your board vertically. If you want horizontal hanging then hold the board horizontally and put it in the nail.
