    YEAH....take apart the deck and railng and build some North Shore type shiat.

    Lader bridges, teeter totters, jumps, skinnies , whatever.
    Do some searches here to find some pctures.

    The guys building in the NS would go crazy for that wood pile.

    some kind of air/drop into one end of the pool onto a ladder tranny that turns into a kicker at the other end to squirt you back onto the deck. Labor intensive i know ,but, could be fun.

    Trout farm anyone?
    Or how about growing pot in it ( like the Cheach and Chong movie)


    Just kidding but depends on what the rest of the terrain looks like around the pool (not shown in pic) you could prob use it to make some cool stunt.

    You could fill in the bottom to make a bowl (lots of dirt). Let us know if you do something with it and post pics

    you could make it into a double with a pool pit of angry beavers and whatnot to fear if you don't clear the landing...

    I'd bet that some of your friends will just loan you their PMSing GF/wife's for a few days...they'll probably even give you stuff like free beer just to take 'em...

    scratch that

    Actually i take that back you could probably jump it and it would be awesome it looks like there is a hill in the backround you could get speed with just jump over the pool. Also it seems like a good place to build some dirt jumps. See what you can do

    How about a foam pit to practice your in-air stunts

    That would mean collecting a hell of alot of foam but that would be very cool, and be sure to make a cover for it when not in use to keep the foam from soaking up water in the rain

    build a roll in over the railing and then wallride along one of the corners in it and then come around and launch off the roll in. and build a double over the pool

    make it a foam pit
    go get alot of foam build a roll in and escuavate (sp?) the ground from right after the roll in so its one big downhill slope and make a jump thats built into the ground so that the top of the lip is level with the top of the pool, ill try to explain it agian so u might understand better, build a roll in(using some of you wood), than to continue the roll in to make it bigger, dig it down into the ground so its under the surface of the earth than slowly make it climb back upwards towards the earth, and than the lip wil be at the top of the pool, and than your pool will be full of 2ftx 2ft foam squares and you practice whatever trick you want into it, and on the other end you can put like a ladder drop into the foam pit so you can practive throwin 360's off of a ladder drop j/k about that, thats my idea though

    edit: i jus read Deweydude response
