Just got a pretty sweet double built today.
Check it out, yo!
Built it into a hillside to help save dirt. It's about 5 feet tall.

Looks kinda small in this pic...

Here's the landing. It's about a 8 foot gap.

Few more doubles will be after it and the last jump will be a hip.

Ahh I am in the same conundrum (of lacking people to help out) but at least you had the initiative to build. I have yet to build but I have some ideas I just need to follow through with them :)... Happy Trails and Happy Building!

heres the landing to the first double and the 2nd takeoff towards the bottom

Worked on this spot some more today. Built new landing and take off. My building skills are getting better! There isn't any filly in these.

and heres the landing. The actual first jump needs to get repaired but, I'll do that later... ha.

3 more weeks 'til I can hit them!
Here's a video of my friend hitting them.

Just curious............in the last pic (post #11), the ladder bridge/roll-in thingy looks like it is straight on into the line. One of the earlier photos (pic 4 and 5 of post #8) looks like it is off to one side. Are you using that as a roll-in or are you coming at the jumps from around that corner? (First pic post #8)

Are you planning to cut some drainage canals into those pits between the lip and landing? Looks like your spot has some slope to it......would be easy and help to dry out faster after a rain. Just sayin'.......

Good job. Keep at it.

The roll-in was built for the jumps in post #11.
For the jumps in posts 8 and 10, we take the corner up to them because trying to turn after the roll in just doesn't work.
And yes, we will dig a drainage system for these new jumps, too. If you look in the last pic of post #10, you can see the drainage canal we made for those 2 jumps. It goes from in between the two doubles and the water drains into the middle of the first jump. I'm actually surprised how well it works.

I worked on it for about an hour or so today.
Fixed the first jump, and cleared a lot of branches.
Working on path to roll in from the end of the jumps...
Pics...
Here's from on the roll-in:


It's really starting to turn into a decent spot!


And here's the trail I'm working on... It's in between both sections...

Let's update this.
Worked on them yesterday and today for a bit.
Here's some pics.

Just got the landing built for the 2nd double.


Here's after the landing. It's going to go way down, and then there will be a nice step up for learning tricks on.


I smoothed this out today. It was pretty rough and bumpy.


A couple shots of the general area...




And why not...

Oh yeah, for sure! Spent basically my whole summer on this spot.
Can't wait to actually ride them!
