heres is my ramp that took forever to build
over 2 1/2 on the small side 6 feet flat over 3 1/2 on the bigger side..this ramp is fast..I had no idea this harwood surface, massonite is not sold in AZ..I could not find it..you drop in and bam you're on the the other side..I think it's to fast to learn on but don't know how to make slower..

The first ramp I built was 8 feet high with 8 feet of flat, that was quick. If you look at the "Skateboard Trick Tips" section I have a video of me dropping into a 3.5' high ramp with 8 feet of flat, which feels about right to me but is likely too fast for some.

Adding 2 feet of flat will help a little, 4 feet would help a little more. If you make another ramp you can make it slower by using a larger transition radius when cutting the sides... unfortunately not easily adjusted on a built ramp.

You could get abec-1 bearings for your board (will slow you down overall), smaller wheels might help a little
