    Default ah ah ah ah PEEP MY NEW MINI!!!

    sick as **** to have in my backyard took 2-3 days to finish completely with the help of some friends.

    cost little under $500 as stated from the plans i used. I used the DIY mini ramp plans but changed the dimensions a little to have a 6 foot flat and cut a foot off the sidewalls/deck.

    SO SICK, check the pictures.

    Damn, that looks so sick. I really want a mini in my backyard.
    That'd be epic just wanting to have a mini session and not having to drive 30 miles. Nice job man. Video soon?

    Holy hell dude, those pictures rock! I tried making a quarter pipe one time without instructions lmfao you can guess how that turned out. How does she ride? Did you have to make any adjustments or did you session it til you passed out?

    Great job btw!

    thanks man, i tired to document it as i made it, but often i wanted to finish it as fast as possible to skate it. As soon as i put the second layer of ply wood on i was skating it, but then put that last piece of masonite on and skated it for a solid 5 hours until my legs gave out from pumping.

    ya follow instructions...they help haha

    Aw man, every time I see a backyard mini it makes me want one all the more.

    I've decided that some of my education grant for next year is getting spent on a 5ft mini ramp. Damn I love socialism...

    its the poor mans skatelite...and no it not weatherproof, its actually the opposite. It swells up if it gets wet and almost "dissolves", but i got a tarp and its way cheaper than skatelite.
