Questions about our Ramp Plan Packages:

  1. What's included in the Ramp Plan Packages?

    Each Package includes the following information: a tools list, a materials list, a cut list, transition profile details, assembly instructions, and large-scale detail drawings. Click here for expanded information and links to our plans.

  2. Are your plans free?

    They are free to preview!

  3. How difficult are these plans to build?

    The difficulty varys from ramp to ramp. The larger the ramp, obviously, the more difficult it will be to build. Most of the designs require at least two people for a quick and safe build, although it can be done solo. KNOWLEDGE OF POWER TOOLS IS NECESSARY!

  4. How much are the material costs for each ramp?

    The cost varies from ramp to ramp. Check the Ramp Plans section for the approximate cost of materials for each ramp. The cost given is assuming that the lowest cost materials are used. For instance, the RPO Mini-Standard ramp will cost over a $1000 more if using Skatelite instead of Hardboard or 1/4" plywood. The Boxes and the Quarter Pipes are the most affordable, coming in at costs under $100 each.

  5. What rider skill level are the ramps designed for?

    The ramp plans are designed to accomodate any skill level, in any sport. The half pipes and quarter pipes use a transition curve that's easy to learn on for beginners, and fun to progress on for more skilled riders.

Questions about ramps in general:

  1. Which ramp should I build?

    You should build whatever you want to ride! But, be realistic; the larger the ramp the more costly it becomes. If you have NEVER buil a ramp before we suggest you begin with a box or a small quarterpipe. Work your way from these and the big projecs will come along a lot easier.

  2. What do I need to get started?

    Well, you need a plan, tools, and materials. If you are broke and can't afford new stuff, take some time looking around your neighborhood for current construction projects and ask the guys on site if you can have some material when the project is done. Otherwise, buy some of our plans and get the list of materials that you'll need, and buy one (or a few) things at a time, as you can afford them!

  3. What tools and skills do I need to build a ramp?

    Basic. You need basic tools and basic building skills. This site doesn't teach anything about using tools and we do not condone using power tools if you don't know how to use them... But, you'll get nowhere without practice. Click here for a brief primer on tools.
