    Default Ramps on a Budget of $500

    I got a big empty shop that I'm hoping to make a some sort of home indoor skatepark.

    What are some must have ramps/rails I should get for a budget of around $500.00.

    I already got one very small rail, and working on make a ft tall box.

    My dad can get metal for free, and I look for making everything myself (welding, construction, etc)

    You should check craigslist. You could save a lot of money, but you would just need a way to transport it.
    Someone was selling a 6ft half pipe here for 400$ and 2 quarter pipes for a 100 bucks.


    Anyone wanna have a Online GoS? pl0x

    You should make like a bunch of roundrail and flatbar variations, like a kink, rainbow rail, uprail, down rail, and just a reg rail.

    The $500.00 is from other people chipping in. Thanks for the help though, I can prolly make the rails for free

    make it atleast 2 feet wide and put masonite on the top so you can boardslide and lipslide it.

    Just build it yourself. If you have a table saw and some glue, the possibilities are endless. If you take your time, the quality will be far superior to any standard store-bought ramp.

    You can build a $200 mini ramp since there's no need to treat the wood much and overbuild. You can build $50 box. Then you've got $250 left to do whatever. I suggest a launch ramp (given enough room), manny pad, or funbox.

    If you want help with planning I can make some up for you.

    you can also snatch some wood pallets from a local store, they're usually behind the stores in huge stacks. Just pull em apart and voila, free wood.
