this thread is for you all to post the obstacles and spots you have made at home or for your private property. have a backyard mini? post it up. made your first box? let's see it. have your own berrics? prove it, and invite us over! have a plywood run set up around your yard? a launch ramp into your pool? some skate friendly home improvement modifications? show us.

i don't have any to show since i live in an apartment with no yard. so someone else is going to need to start us off.

here's a few of me and my old roomates driveway ramps....had a nice little setup
with a rail in between....it was a lot of fun, but we've since moved away and given
the ramps to some of the younger skaters there who used to hang with us


this fucker was soo gnar, I'd like to have kept it and re-worked it but now
I in an apartment near the city, so parks are rather abundant


and it mellow counter part, roll on this bitch to get yer bearings about ya,
then hit the biggun!

how big is that? the death lens makes it hard to imagine without someone skating it.

Ha ha, yeah, the picture's sort of fucked because it's actually a bunch of pics stitched together. Wish I had a fisheye camera because that would have been a helluva lot easier.

It's 3' tall by 15' wide. 7 or 8 feet of flat (can't remember). The extensions are 4'.

nice. looks like fun...though i can't really get down with 3' minis. 4' are acceptable, but i like 5'+. but that isn't to say i wouldn't skate one if it were my only option...plus if you went bigger it might make the roof too close.

I went as big as I could go with what I had to work with. I can't even stand on the deck without bending over a little, and I'm not a tall guy. I would have loved to have been able to make it 4 or 5 feet, but it's still pretty fun as is.
