    Isn't this a bike forum? You may get better info on another site.

    Most people would use lumber with Skatelite surface if u can afford it.. Google T1 ramp for example.

    Backyard cement bowls are rare and expensive to do well.

    Google "DIY crete" if you wanna see some cement constructions by skateboarders.

    I ride DH/FR, XC, DJ/street & park
    We have 60 acres of bush land(all private property) we are building a DJ & park complex so far we have 8 medium to large doubles a few hips & a half finished pump track(pump track & jumps are weaved in together too).
    & before anyone just assumes no I'm not some geeky teen I've been riding mtb's for near on 10yrs now & I'm almost 30yrs old.

    just though that putting a small skatepark in too would be good & fun to ride.

    Burnside skatepark that is sort of in the vein you are talking about:

    if you click on the link...it tells of Burnside history which I thought was really interesting...they didnt get permission they just started building it...one of the big problems you are gonna have is the concrete which is pretty expensive.

    wood is the easiest/cheapest, besides dirt.

    build a mini ramp and keep adding on. Make hips off the sides, etc.
