Free Halfpipe Plans

Free plans for a vert halfpipe ( these are the first plans on the site, made when I was in 7th grade )

I was able to build this ramp because a skatepark near me closed down and asked if they could store the wood in Barn #3. I took two 8' quarterpipes and put them together in the other barn. I made a free geocities website to put pictures of the halfpipe, as well as the following plans.

These plans are not very good. They are the first plans that I created and I have not edited them since 1999. I would not recommend building an 8' halfpipe this way, it is overly complicated. To see a better way to make a ramp this big check out this project page. I've decided to keep the plans online, since there are not a lot of step by step instructions out there for building a vert ramp. Unfortunately I cannot improve the plans without building a new vert ramp. Someday I will do this, but not for a while.
