HI All!!

We are looking at building a 12ft vert ramp in Johannesburg, South Africa and looking for some input on the design. You can download the complete design at www.vert.co.za under the Downloads section.

This is a vert ramp based on a lot of research on the internet and some personal experience skating vert ramps. The final dimensions for the vert ramp came down to:
Total hight: 12ft
Transitions: 10.5ft
Vert: 1.5ft

The design is based on steel construction (cheaper than wood in SA) with a 5mm plywood as first layer and 3mm metal sheet as second and final layer. We have crass/support bars +- 25cm apart and believe it should be enough and strong to take impact of high fling airs and bails !

The ramps design is also semi-modular to allow us to move the ramp if required, or extend additional sections in the future with ease.

We are now looking for some good comments, feedback and suggestions on the design to ensure we have everything 100%. Please email us on info[at]vert(dot)co{dot}za .

If we make any changes to the ramp plans we will post them to our website www.vert.co.za.

If you decided to use the plans – please feel free to do so and email us the pictures of you new ramp (and the construction process..) We only request you put up a sign on the ramp with reference to www.vert.co.za – thanks!

Will post some foto’s online when we start building and hope to be finished early 2010.

Seriously.  I'll drop in and try to scrape some grinds but after that I'm done.  Vert is scary.

Sounds like some big wheel in the industry is bitter because they didn't get an invite to the Rumble in Ramona.

Those dimensions should be fine.  If you can go up to 12.3 do it.  10.5 trasitions 1 foot nine inches of vert.

the sexual orientation of an inanimate wooden object has nothing to do with the fact that you just can' t ride it, which is why you made that statement.
