    'Vert' reffers to riding a halfpipe in which the transition goes completely vertical.

    I would kill myself on a vert ramp. First of all, I would never be able to make it up the ramp. Second, I could never drop in on one. I know I would crash and die. It just looks viscious.

    The only vert riding I've ever done is when my dirt jumping goes wrong.

    What do you mean dropping in is hard? :confused:
    Dropping in is a piece of cake.
    Just go on an angle or straight and bunny-hop in.
    At my skate park we have a quater pipe atached to the half pipe so we can go up the quater pipe, manual along the top drop in the half pipe and go up the other side.
    Vert is just half pipe.

    vert is pretty awsome, i love just riding back and forth on it doing nothing, and it n/ seems to get old, and as soon as i get my new bike i'm going to try stuff on the thing because you can't double peg stall without pegs
