Get one piece of Masonite which will be the actual surface you are riding on.Â Next, acquire 5 or 6 2×4’s weathered as well. I’d been skating solid for 2 years(about14yo) and than scavanged enough timber to start by building a jump ramp first which we used on the street (always a couple of mates around to keep watch for cars) we also had an old railway sleeper we put on the gutter for railslides….as we got better we wet and waxed(surfboard wax)the sleeper to get a bit more speed.
Steve, it’s not too hard to build a skate ramp (depending on how big / complex your boy wants it) and to build something for your boy that he will enjoy with his mates is a great thing, I built one for my boys years ago and the are still alive and breathing and one of my sons is about to repeat the process for his boys, great exercise and out door sport.
Both Fiona and Shamus have taken lessons at Talent Skatepark in Williston, but they’re still apprehensive navigating the ramp standing up on their skateboards.

The Museum of Ethnography is the third new building revealed as part of the Liget Budapest Project , one of Europe’s largest museum developments. This will help the ramp endure the cold and wet weather that Palestinians face every winter.
I learned a majority of my tricks at home on my scooter ramp, and hopefully so can you. But if you put tar paper under and over the first layer of the surfacing it will prevent a lot of water from getting in. then if you weather strip the wood and paint it it will help a lot. If I had realized this before applying any of the plywood layers I might not have bothered being so precise, but I suppose that was just a little experimental planning on my part and the ramp definitely didn’t end up any worse off for it.
But if someone asked about building a ramp, he’d be told he’d need a permit if it exceeded 120 square feet. Is the place to come when building a skate ramp, or when you need to know how to build a skate ramp the right way. It works OK indoors, but creates a lot of dust when you skate it.
