Im having problems staying on a particularly skinny ladder. Its the ramp going up to a 3 foot high ladder. Its maybe 4 inches wide. I have no problem doing the ladder but i find the slope very difficult to stay on. Anyone have any tips?

sounds like it's too wide. try riding it at 1.5" wide.
I just measured it and its 3 1/8 inches. I dont freeride, i rarely do ladders this skinny. i would never even try riding 1.5 inches.

sounded like gonzo was just being an a**.

commit! that's the best thing to do. if you head towards it and you're unsure then you won't make it.

look ahead. look at where you wanna go and not where you are going to crash. :D

some like it seating down, some off the seat... it's up to you.

choose a gear that has some tension (not granny) but not too hard either. what u want is some kind of power-on-demand.

btw, a 3 foot high ladder isn't exactly low.

Take a side on the wild walk.

Practice riding the curb of a sidewalk. It's about the same width with much less penalty for mistakes. Once you realize you can handle it, work up to the exposed stuff.

Like these but narower and probably better built, most of the time they are built out of 2X4's some arnt, the more sane ones are (in my opinion). i ahev my own built outa two by fours but i want to add on to it, btw the one i buit is seven inches wide. (these pics are of ones that i found out on the trail but not good enough yet to even attempt them, lol)
