some buddies of mine want to build a kicker and so i figured i would check on here for some good tips. i have asked around town but i know they are some obstacle building ninjas on here as well so please share with me your knowledge.
what dimensions/measurements? materials/lumber? simple yet specific instructions on how to build.
we aren't trying to build something big, just wanna get booted. if you have built a kicker, just let me know how you built it and what you built it with. thanks you guys!
PS, will I be seeing you kill it again at mid summer classic again this year or what?
yea il be at MSC!
im not sure how much wood i used but let me drag some pics from my facebook
i have no plans i built this just from my brain when i had a broken leg and was bored... this is for bmx bikes not wakeboards, but im sure if i floated it you could LAUNCH monster high on a wakeboard!
^^^ i basically just laid 3 peices of ply wood on flat ground and cut the curve like above.
to cut a perfect curve i just staked a piece of rope in the ground and put a pen on the end of the rope and just dragged the pen across the wood and kept the rope tight... after cutting these 3 pieces out i made a replica of each one. then just drilled 4 foot long 2/4s across. i made some reinforcements below, like diagonal boards and whatnot cause its so tall, but yea i think everything is pretty self explanitory to put the rest together... the wood i had was hell to bend but luckily i just parked the cart on top. two peices of thinner plywood stacked would be ideal and easier to bend.
That was my first reaction. That first pic looks more like a wall than a kicker. That being said, I don't know crap about building one, so don't listen to me. Would love to see how it turns out. They are super fun!
