Default My Ramp

Most of you would know that I love skateboarding (games and the real thing). Well a few months ago I finally talked my wife into letting me build a ramp in the backyard for my kids LOL.
I thought I would share a few pics of the final product. I love coming home after work and spending time on it with the kids. Since it has been finished the kids and I have used it everyday. We love it
My 6yrs boy is even dropping in already by himself and my 4yrs girl is riding up and down by herself.
I have also added a photo of my showing the boy how its done lol

Mate that is outstanding. What did it cost to set up? How long did it take?

Took about 1 - 2 months working a day here and there. Most of the wood I got was cheap. A friend was building one at the same time so we got good deals. All up it cost about $1300 money well spent.

Now you don't see that very often. Cubby house in the backyard yes but skateboard ramps?

I'm surprised you haven't got a cue outside waiting to pay to get in mate.

Start up a skate park.

I bet your kids think your cool.
