    Sorry, this was the first video I created when I moved out here to Colorado and there were issues with music and licensing. If you PM me I can give you my email address and we can discuss it further if you are looking to build something.

    That was really cool Dave! Nice editing! Not that I'm gonna build one, but cool none the less for others!

    I will be living back east this summer with tons of time on my 2 1/2 month vacation. So, if you need help I could come down and work with you on it. I'd be so down for a backyard jib session.
    sounds good bro thanks

    yea my dimensions are f*cked haha, i shouldve took my time and found blueprints like posted above.

    here are mine, all the widths are standard plywood size, i didnt measure.

    Drop in Deck - 4ft 6" high
    Drop in Ramp - 8ft long
    In Run - 4ft
    Kicker - 1ft 11" long and only 10" high

    the kicker def needs modding. I might start over this summer

    i only put one layer of snow fence on mine. 3 layers make it faster?

    The dimensions on mine are completely different.

    (LxWxH)

    Drop-in Deck: 4'x4'x4'
    Drop-In Ramp: 7'x4'x4'
    In-Run: 8'x4'x4"
    Kicker: 4'x4'x1.5'

    The rail is 1/4" PVC Pipe, 3" diameter, 10' in length. I will be adding a 5' piece to give it a total of 15'.

    I used three layers of snow fence for the surface and simply wet it for riding. The day was windy so it was slower than normal. When it snowed it was extremely fast.

    prolly the best instructional vid ive seen on how to make one. wish i saw this last year before i made a sh*tty one.

    dave, can you tell me the length and height of the pieces.

    like the kicker, the drop and the flat.

    good job on the vid

    This is roughly the blueprint I followed for mine
