The ramp thread

Ok, so who rides ramps? At a park, or did you/friends build it yourself? What tricks can you do? And let's see some photos, if you've got them.

i ride some park ramps, but im not that wonderful. i can x-up, barspin, no-footer, seatgrab,no-hander, crankflip, 180 , almost 360(i hate spinning), tail tap, half-ass fufanu, abubaca, tabletop, and footplant. thats about it. i prolly wont get any photos cause i dont have a camera, but if i do get some i'll make sure to post them.

I'm going to estimate eight feet to the chain for the garage door, using the frame on the wall as a reference.

The trails I ride are a mile or 2 from my house down three big hills and up 2medium hills. And in a forest where I can't bring a shovel. Plus i can't drive to them.
