pshewww my knees hurt just lookin at it. It looks REALLY well made and has tons of potential. I would imagine you will have to weight down the ramp end to lower it under water a few inches, but doing so will make it even more steep. I would guess it is going to be PLENTY PLENTY steep, so I would weight the launch end of the kicker as well.

If you used barrels, you can just add some water to all of them and equally lower it. Otherwise, find some lead weights and sink it in a bit.

Looks awesome though and should be a lot of fun!

That's sweet!! What did you use for the top sheets? Are you using 50gallon drums to float it? It would be cool to see more DIY like these

Looks good, it'll def put you up. If your doin a pwc don't hesitate to take it slow around 19mph first few hits. Tranny looks great only thing if I was picking it apart was maybe a little wider. But great build!

Those are some great looking kickers. I always check the "I built a kicker" threads to laugh at the deathtraps, but I'd hit both of those all day long.

drove by the rooftop and few months ago and thought damn! thats a nice lookin rail!

Agree on the kicker, its gonna be snappy!

Also for those using those blue barrels, make sure you either silicone the caps on the end. Spent a day building one and had to pull the barrel out, drain it and put it back under the kicker.

looks solid!!

That looks sweet. I've never gone off a kicker before, mainly because I ride river all the time and they have these stupid laws about not putting that stuff out. I would love to try one some day and that certainly looks like a nice one. Good job, post the results when it gets floating.
