    Default Considerations for a backyard ramp for the future (size, slope etc)

    Hi,

    I've been skating for about a year, and it's great! I want to build a mini ramp to be able to skate more close to my home. My space is unlimited, but money is ... My plan is to decide what I want and then save up for that and try to salvage material to build it.

    My question is what I should think of when I build the ramp. I'm really a beginner now, but if I spend time and money to build something I want to be able to enjoy and progress on it for many years. What should I consider?

    Wider is better.. more room for error and more transition to play around with.

    Thanks for your thought!

    I'll measure a ramp I like to find out a width that is cool, I guess 4-5 meters wide. But how about height? I like speed, so I want something that I can learn to go fast on

    There are plenty of directions online for a ramp that's 4' wide with an 8' radius. I'm stoked for you! Please keep us updated, with pictures if possible!

    If space and budget (and being old as dirt) were not obstacles I'd go for something like this.. That's 10 feet high by about 24 feet wide
