I made a small ramp when I was 18. It worked well, but I don't know that I would recommend that for your kids.

unfortunately, you're getting into a major high dollar item... a brand new jump with a nice Beaman surface is upwards of $30,000 when all is said and done.

Your best (and cheapest) bet is to join an area ski club that has a jump, because unless you have your own private lake, putting a jump on a public lake is going to require cutting through alot of red tape and bureaucracy... There is a ton of safety and liability issues is what I am saying.

Agree, but he'll only get as far as the frame. The surface will cost him 10-12K with professional installation...

after seeing the complicated nature of the seam work and consider the expense involved, i would highly recommend professional surface install.

Also, keep in mind that most water districts have outlawed styrofoam - you need encapsulated foam now - $$$$

We built two of them in the 80's both Awsa regulation ramps. One from wood the other all steel.

I imagine they dont need a record capable jump surface. a simple fiberglass cloth laid surface is within most people's abilities to build. Our first jump build saw several regional records broke on it. The surface doesn't have to be perfect. Just waxed well so the ski track on it.

We took the steel ramp to a fiberglass camper maker and the sprayed chop on for the surface. That jump is still in use today and probably has several more records off it. The deck was 4in I beam and c channel with 3/4 marine ply under the chop. That deck probably caused several bruised heals.

Comparing to several ramps I saw at travers, Bennett's and other regional sites ours were some of the best built I saw
