4' mini ramp

Postby Shellskater on Wed Jul 23, 2014 7:55 am

Hello, I'm building a 4' tall 1/2 pipe and I am trying to find out a good length of the bottom flat section? We made it 8' but it seems a little too short. We are going to take it apart and lengthen it up, I'm just wondering if we should extend it 2' or 4', which would make it 10' or 12'. I'm curious if a 12' flat section would be too much? Thanks for the input.

Hey Shellskater, for what its worth I'd go with 12 feet.

My mini halfpipe plans use an 8 foot flat bottom because thats how Id seen it done before and it is a convenient length as far as building time and price. But I agree it can feel a bit short, especially for a 4' tall halfpipe.

If you build a 4 foot extension and think its too long, you could modify it to be shorter.
