    half pipe

    Me and a couple friends are going to build a half pipe, and we have someone that knows a little bit about building them, but we need more specific information. I was just wondering if anybody knows of a website that has free information on building one, because I cant seem to find a site that has information that doesnt cost money.

    Man, I apologize if I'm off base, but I gotta call BS. You built that ramp? A full masonite covered metal superstructure halfpipe built by a 26yo in Trinidad in his backyard? Maybe you did build it and you just happen to be a skilled welder, but you gotta admit it's pretty far-fetched.

    I built several ramps when I was a lot younger than 26, but the ramp pictured looks manufactured. Add to that, that looks like probably $3-5000+ in materials and you wonder why/if/how he built it. I'm not saying it is impossible, I'm just saying it's unlikely. Tell you what, ride, take a pic of you standing on that ramp, pointing at the camera and I'll eat my words.

    When I convert the TT dollars it cost $5000 USD in material and $2000 USD in tools with our own labour. My brother and I built it with some helping hands from other guys. 9 months from idea to finish. Its a steel frame with marine ply wood surface. Its possible for anyone to build any kind of ramp, you just need the knowledge, theory and practical.

    I agree completely. So, when are you posting the picture of you standing on it, pointing at the camera?
