### 8ft halfpipe with 1 ft of vert

hello i am thinking about building a vert ramp because the skatepark hear closed down, i want something with 1ft of vert, so i was wondering if i build a 8ft halfpipe is it possible to fit 1ft of vert on a small ramp like that, most ramps with 1 ft of vert are like 10 ft or higher. do you think that maybe i can make a mellow 8ft halfpipe with 1ft of vert?

10 or 12 is to big, my dad wont let me bulid one in the yard if i is that big. what about 6inches of vert do you think that would work?

I added six inches of vert on my halfpipe (see vert halfpipe plans). The pipe has an 8' transition with 16 feet of flatbottom. Afterwords I wished I had added a foot of vert, it would have made it easier to air out straight up. When I learned how to do backflips, I always did them on the vert side http://www.xtremeskater.com/aggressivei ... ckflip.php.

yeah, thats why i want to add vert, so that i can just fly out to do airs easily on my board. but my plan is to have 6inches of vert on the whole ramp, and an extension with 1/2 ft of vert.

I have seen halfpipes 8ft tall with 2ft of vert so 1ft of vert is fine just make the radius 7ft you should be fine.
