For over 15 years,
Thrasher has been publishing and updating crucial ramp-building manuals used the world over by skaters who have taken the terrain into their own hands and their own backyards. This year’s edition has proved to be the most ambitious and successful endeavor to date, transforming the project from a stapled-together, 32-page manual to a perfect-bound, full-color book. Thrasher’s How To Build Skateboard Ramps is the only book on skateboard ramp plans you will ever need. Whether you’re building a new ramp, adding on to an existing ramp, or replacing an old ramp, all the info is in here.
