    ait guys here's my problem
    ok im makin a half pipe for me ofcourse and im plannig it to be 5' high 1' 1/2" platform and one half of the pipe ima make 6' high with a 1' drop onto the 5' one so here it is im wonderin how long do i need to make the flat platform part and should i make it into the two halfs or make a separate piece and oh ye how wide should i make it im planning 15'
  2. i built a half pipe in 8th grade shop. it was awful. i got pissed and set it on fire. that was far cooler than riding on it

    sounds way cooler and far more amusing then to skate it if you lit it on fire.

    the advice i'll give you (i haven't built real ramps in a long time...): if yer gonna do it as 2 quarters put a strip of sheet metal at the bottom... it'll keep the wood from getting all fucked and unridable... but, in the end, if you have the room, i would say go for a half, not two quarters...

    u shouldnt put vert on a mini ramp. there are plans online on how to build ramps...just scale it down with a ratio.

    i think my friends and i built the most ghetto half pipe in the world..it was funny cause it attracted a lot of different skaters of the island....and my friend knocked the shit out of some cop with brass knuckles...he didnt know it was a cop until the flashlight was out of his face....hahahaha

    my stepbrothers and stepdad made a mini ramp one day with vert on it. i used to have fun painting because thats all it was good for. although me and my friends made the crazyiest half pipe ive ever seen home made.

    8ft at both ends
    rollers on both sides of spine
    2 foot extension on one side
    2 foot rollins and 2 foot tall 1 foot recessed sub box on the other side

    that thing was fun.

    In my area in dc there is this old lady that owns a half pipe in her back yard(her son skated awhile ago), around 9 feet or so...and she aways used to make us cookies and sandwiches whenever we would come over and ask to skate it...she was the coolest...we would session that shit for ever, she would never care what we did out there..
