Does anybody know or have a link to all the specs and materials they use for the sliders and kickers they use on the tour?

I don't know that they are public, but the sliders used on the tour aren't normal sliders anyway since they are built to be towed around the country. Heavy duty frame with wheels and remote controlled hydraulics - not exactly what you need for your local lake.

Actually, what I wanted to know most was the height, width, length, angles, and surface materials. Believe it or not, I'm not too interested in the structural aspects of parking a Ford Ranger in the A-Frame. Does anybody know the basic info?

I just talked to the people at OWC and they use 3/4" HDPE (high density polyethelene) for all thier stuff, it slides real nice and doesn't damage boards too bad(3 days there and no bad wear on mine)

Hope this help

This is what I got from Peter Fleck for the a-frame

21 foot flat with 15 foot ramps and 24" ollies

Thanks guys. Do you know how high off the water the flat part of the A-frame is? Also how high is the flatbar and what is the length and height of the rainbow?

I'm pretty sure that the flat bar is about 50 ft long and it is approximately waist high.

check out the article in one of the last 2 wakeboarding mags with pat panakos from the projects. he builds some of the safest sliders ever, and he builds them for the pro tour and other events too.
