1st jump and 2 1/2 ft ladder in the backround-

Does anyone have any advice on what to build next?Right now i am building another skinnie elevated 5 ft high with a left turn instead of just being straight.Im thinking about building a skinnie which goes up-flat-up-down and another with back to back see-saws and makes a u turn..Please give me some advice!Thanks

nice start

nice but i reccomend using dirt thats cleaner, that dirt you built the jump out of looks like theres a lot of pine needles and stuff in it, sh** like that will cause your jump to go to crap pretty quick, just dig a little deeper.

Your welcome, a jump-> teeter would be nuckin' futs, if u do it we need pics. Also make it a flat teeter, so it would be more of a step up that dumps you
jumps onto teeters are sick, robbie bourdon broke his arm on the one at whistler. make sure you get pics of it!

questions with jumps onto teeters

well all this talk gave me an idea to build one.questions though. im not gonn amake any thing close to the whistler one. porboly 3-4 feet of the ground, so that means a 3-4 foot kicker place a couple feet from the teeter right? should i make the teeter high or lower then the kicker ramp?

perhaps you ought to do some reseach on bridge support systems (cross bracing and such). Am I the only person who thinks that skinny looks like its being held up with twigs?
LOL, No! I thought the exact same thing. I only wiegh 170 lbs max, and I wouldn't be caught dead on that sketchy thing, lol.
