Skateboard ramps let us do tricks that we would not be able to do without. A rail will let us do grinds and slides. A quarterpipe lets us carve and launch into the air. Here is will tell you about the main skateboard ramps.
We all want to skate something. Sometimes there isn't anything good to skate where you live. You saw a sweet ramp on a video and want to do the tricks they do on it but first you need the terrain. I will show you the simplest way to build, buy and get skateboard ramps.
This is the place to find out all you need to know the skate the best skateboard ramps.
Start with skateboard ramp plans. I give general information on ramp plans. This will help you build them right so they last a long time.
I love to build things. Some of my first attempts at skateboard ramps were terrible. Every time you try, you learn and get better.My first attempt at a halfpipe was Scary.
But it did work.
I have tried a lot of different ways to build and skate skateboard ramps. Over the years I have made many ramps. Some full skateparks other made of materials scavenged from the alleyways. I have designed blueprints for skateparks and had many obstacles professionally made.
With all the experimentation I have come to two conclusions. You need to have a place to build and skate ramps your ramps
or you need portable ramps to skate anywhere.
Both come with Pros and Cons:
The concrete DIY parks are a whole other animal of raddness that not all us would be able to do. They are worth mentioning.
I have a launch ramp and many many rails over the years. The problem I had was that I could not get them from where I stored them to a place to skate them easy. This meant they didn’t get skated as much I wanted to.
The other problem is that they always got stolen. I have had 4 skate rails stolen over the years.
The Element Drop Spot ramps look pretty useful. They fold up and can be rolled around on your board. I have the Drop Spot Rail and it works great.
You need to decide whether you want a permanent ramps or portable. If you are going to buy them or build them.
I have recommendations for getting the most out of whatever you decide. Soon I will add to this
