i always loved Bams SSBSTS trick tip in CKY2k (i think it was that one). "Approach the ledge with speed, ollie, turn, slide, ride away clean" :lol:

Random pic I snapped of Kenny Hughes. I didn't even know he was gonna be there, but I coincidentally had a Kenny Hughes Element deck with me that he signed. I stayed in the cabin directly behind him

Do any of y’all that have a backyard have quarteR pipes, banks, rails or the likes for skating at home?

If so is it better to build your own or buy them?
what are some good resources for diy or companies that sell this stuff? I think Woodward might sell some of this at home stuff

I don’t. I’ve built a box before. Wanna do it again. Just storage and transportation tough. Space.

I would think DIY videos on youtube + the cost of the lumber would be the cheapest route unless you're willing to splurge.

i wouldnt buy any of the premade stuff. Either build it yourself (with friends) or pay someone who knows what they are doing.

I been wanting a miniramp in my garage or backyard for years now. My friend was giving away his 2' and i passed on it, still regret it. I just dont have time to build it and/or skate it regularly enough though - maybe when my son is older. :lol:

I live in a small apartment in ny but the day I move into a house I always told myself I would get a mini ramp

Found this site with instructions on how to build a mini ramp and others
Mini ramp: https://www.xtremeskater.com/ramp-plans/mini-ramp/

Quarter pipe:

What’s a good skateboard for a beginner? I only know how to Ollie

also do I wax the board if I wanna grind?

You could wax a curb, but its not a surf board so no wax on the deck or trucks in my book.

I’d look at a complete that’s the right width for your feet as a starter.

You can build a custom complete or get one of those cheaper budget completes that comes with budget trucks/bearings. How much you looking to spend?
