Anyone tried this? Steel rebar skeleton on maybe some pillars? Rebar in the pillars too obviously... I could draw you a picture but I think you see it how I see it already- A cement halfpipe standing freely with nothing under the decks/tables where you stand to drop in.

Its been done many times, just like your drawing but without the pillars. it's just simple math and physics and if you can't do that, it's just understanding the proper way to use, bend, corner, and anchor rebar.

i've only seen it done a few times. never as a full halfpipe or a bowl though.... and that was only in videos. i'm doing this for my DIY spot. already made the mold and bent 5 lengths of rebar for a rainbow ledge.

You don't even need the pillars. Or the decks.   If you want.   Like already said, use some math and maybe look at more skateparks.   Basically you've not invented anything which is what the feel of your post seem to suggest.

yeah i'm thinking i'd make the quarters out of seperate frames so i'd need the pillars or something for them to lean against at first. i did my first rebar inforced hollow ramp last night... a rainbow ledge. looks good too. just threw the frame and the bent rebars in the back of my car with a bag of cement and some gallon jugs of water and was able to reinvent "the bump" underneath a bridge. looking forward to skating it.

here's where i'm at so far with it. part of the backing broke while i was pouring the cement so it's no entirely hollow backed but i like it.
