Actually I own part of one in Winterhaven Florida!!!

At the time when I bought it, back in 1996/97 it was $12K I think.

That jump is still in great shape, It was FLIPPED over in a hurricane... the whole deal

Jump is in this video

I had no idea a jump was that pricey. No wonder you don't see many of them around.

I built one when I was in high school out of 2x4's, plywood, 55 gallon drums and house paint.............but I expect you are looking for something more professional. :rolleyes:

Not sure where you are located but I recall seeing a guy locally selling one on craigslist (Akron, Ohio) and I think he wanted abround $2k for it. I have no idea what is good and bad in terms of ramps but it may be worth looking into if he still has it. If interested just go onto craigslist Akron Ohio and do a search for waterski jump or ramp and it will likely show up. If it does not, shoot me a pm and I will see if I can locate the name and number of the guy who was selling it as I am pretty sure I know who it was.

The problem with buying a used jump is the transportation. Some of them will break down for easy transport but most of the homemade ones won't.

The ski club at our lake built one in the 70s out of the same materials and it was still being used when I started to ski in the mid 80s. The club shut down and one of the members went over it one last time around 1988. The lake organization tore it down to keep people from trying to use it and kill themselves (I would have tried it :D). I don't know what the dimensions are, but it can be built from basic materials for a lot less than $10K and last a long time if cared for properly. Get good health insurance.
