    How much would it cost to build a half pipe?

    I don't know if any of y'all know but it's worth a try. (Lethal)

    Depends on the size and type you want to make. If you are using wood, I would estimate it to be around $600-$900. My brother and I built one a while ago and he payed for it, so I can't remember the exact cost.

    It was a simple 4 foot high, 12 foot wide. I might be wrong on the cost.
    Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet.

    That's not a bad price but i would want my ramp about 6 or 8 feet high. Did you use to skate?

    Use to? I still skate all the time. I roll on my old school board, just killing it in the park.

    But wow, 6-8 foot is no joke if you are building it yourself. If you're thinking 8 foot are intending it for vert, or big air?

    I couldn't build a bird house. No, my uncle buddy will do it because he's been building since he was a kid. I'm gonna Tony hawk it and vert it. I think 7ft high and 20ft wide is good. I don't know how long i want it though.Also,i didn't take you for the skater type.

    As a builder, I would estimate a 7ft high and 20 ft wide pipe to run u well over a grand. Serious structure bro..if built right.

    I wouldn't mind paying the money as long as ling as they last a long time. I'm still thinking on the measurements thought. I know for a fact i want 6 or more in height wise but width and length i haven't decided. I'm thinking 18 ft or 20 ft and length i have no clue. I know there's a certain amount of flat you need and everything.

    Edit I think my final decision will be 6 ft height 20 ft width and 30 ft long after watching some youtube videos.

    I wasn't planning on it. I have some things ahead of me but i'll get it done.
    Here's a video. This pretty much what i want and it has terrible music but the music started to grow on me after a few plays.

    Mini ramps are cool I used to play in them for ages doing lip ticks on my BMX, 50-50 grind then try it backwards or do a 360 tyre tep then drop back in.
    fun stuff.
