    that's not entirely true. digging by hand is brutual that's why i rent a small escavater (about the size of a bobcat). it only takes an hour or so to muscle memory the controls enough to do what you want. in a day i can build around 16 jumps. no soar back or blisters on your hands and it can be done with just one person....the drawbacks of course are you can only build where you have permission to do so... which in most cases will be your own property. going renegade with a tractor will surely get you into trouble (although i have done it). the machine will cost between $175 and $250 and in most cases you have to be 21 years of age. small price to pay for instant dj's.

    been there done that. I saw the city parks manager cruise buy while I still had the tractor in the woods so I waited till they left the area to load the tractor back up. Well just as I was tieing the tractor down to the trailor the dude drives up and asks "uh.......whats the tractor for?"
    on the other hand, I don't mind digging by hand 'cause I just consider the park as my own personal gym. Build the jump=strength training---------ride the jump=aerobics

    Tips:

    Find a spot that is somewhat hidden to keep local kids from tearing them down and landowners off your A$$.

    Make sure the spot has dirt that will pack down (not sandy)

    Nearby water source or you will have to wait for a good rain

    as you build the jump up keep packing it down and putting a little bit of water all through it (if its dry dirt) I use a 4 ft long 2x4 or 2x6 to pack it with. Be sure to spend quite a bit of time packing it down to make it last a long time.

    Make sure the lip has a nice smooth radius on it by rolling your bike up and down it and feeling for hump and bumps. Also I use a flat shovel to do the initial shaping with.

    Make the landing more of a wedge shape to begin with as the steeper landings are harder to land on correctly until you get used to jumping and nosing the bike in on the landings

    Its a good idea to put a little bit of water on the jumps before you use them each day, it will help them keep from falling apart and will really smooth them out.

    Between jumps on rhythm sections it is also a good idea to round out the ground between the landing of one and the takeoff of the next. This area will tend to hold water so you need to dig drainage ditches as well.

    I built these for Eric Porter in his Kranked 6 segment. The flair and hand plant were from the year before. He fliped the big one......They were on the DH track for the swiss championships in Les Crosets, Switzerland. I had to take them down after we finished filming. You can see video of these on www.radical-films.com.

    my jump spot from last year has had quite a bit of work done to it by some people.. not sure who, but theyve built a little loop it seems as well as a catwalk and a few jumps in it.. I hope they have my shovel that I left there that went missing last year!
