I happened to be skating down the street the other day and ran into a kid of about 11 or 12 years old on a Bam board. I stopped and started talking to him and asked him how long he's been skating. "About two years", he said. So we ended up in a game of skate and I was shocked. Two years and the kid could barely ollie. I've noticed a trend happening that kids are not progressing at all in skating. A semi-friend of mine has also been skating for around three years, longer than me, and can barely pop-shove. He skates more than me, also.
So, we all should be well aware that, no matter how long you've been skating, mini-ramps are fun as hell. They support pretty much any style of skating, from street-style flips to vert style airs, it can be done a nice mini. One problem, though. What if their aren't any public minis? Who really wants to pay $15 a day to skate an indoor park? No one. That is why I am providing you with a nice plan for a mini that will keep you entertained day after day.
The ramp you are making should be approximately 4 feet high by 8 feet wide. A perfect size.
