Skateboarding Ramps

True vert skateboarding ramps are a sort of half-pipe that is used in extreme sports, and these can further be divided into full size designs and mini ramps. The full sized designs allow a rider to catch air much easier than with a mini ramp. When a rider drops into the ramp, they can pull off a series of skateboarding tricks. For that matter, one could consider dropping in to be a trick in its own right, and it is an essential skill for anyone who wants to conquer any full sized skateboarding ramps. Pulling back on the tails of their skateboards, riders are able to more or less fall face forward. This can certainly make it intimidating for those who haven’t ever tried vert skateboarding before to actually attempt to pull it off. However, a full-sized vert ramp isn’t something that beginners should really be attempting anyways.

The original skateboarding ramps actually got off to a rocky start. The first park was Carlsbad Skatepark, constructed in March 1976. However, skateboarding ramps eventually started to fall by the wayside as many parks started to wane in popularity because of the insurance premiums and general downturn in the popularity of extreme skateboarding. However, eventually there were changes in legislation, and the sport became more popular once more. While many of the private parks from this era have sadly vanished, those who take a skateboarding safari around the world might still get to grind at an original public park of that time period.

A number of skateboarding ramps have been produced for the home market, and these can be moved by only a few people and carried to wherever the action is. The Landwave brand features several, though it should be noted that prices could vary wildly. Landwave offers one ramp at around $50, and also offers a pack of skateboarding ramps around the same price. The Driveway Park series from the same manufacturer costs over $500, but allows skaters to set up what seems like a full skatepark in their own Driveway. The LWSPB Starter, which is around $113, can be seen as a nice way into the home market. For those who don’t object to paying a little more, the same company offers a Pyramid Ramp that can be found around $180. Any larger skateboard shop should carry them, especially if they cater to specialties and carry specialist’s equipment like longboards.
