    Looks like a drop to me. Nothing about it looks to be kicking the rider up into the air.

    Looks like a sweet jump to me.
    Gone are the days we stopped to decide,
    Where we should go,
    We just ride...

    How can it be a ramp if it doesn't appear to have any upwards direction?

    well offramps on the highway don't have upwards direction...unless you're running from the cops and get on going backerds.

    Hey bueno...why did you want to know what people thought it was? have a bet with a friend?

    This is the first one I agree with also. All that thing needs is a few used truck tires under it and its a good ole back in the day back yard ramp.

    Ramp, with the rider going slow, I am wondering if he made it to the transition to land. I say ramp because it is angled up from the trail. A drop would just be level with the trail, then drop away. A kicker would throw the rider up more, which this isn't doing.

    From the photo angle, looks like a drop, off a ramp.
    A side view, showing the angle it's built at relative to the roll in will tell you if it's a kicker, or a drop.
    Goes up = kicker.
    Level or down = drop.
