It was very windy today and I didn't want to go outside so I fixed up an old jump deign I've been brewing for a few years now. It looks like it will cost $200-$400 per jump depending on what fasteners and such are used. I like pricey star head screws and I use lots of glue. Could cost less if you have extra stock on hand.
Some young local rippers are building a slopestyle trail and I wanted to show them how to build something that will last.
The jump could be built with a similar concept if you wanted it steeper or wider. You will just have to put a middle web if you are going to go wider.
It's deigned to maximize face nail/screwing and keep toe nailing to a minimum. I used treated wood for the bottom parts that are in contact with the ground, but will use hem/fur for the framing because treated is not needed. It will last with out it, plus that stuff is bad for the environment.
The 54deg or 48deg is key to build it right. It took me a little bit to figure out the right angle.
