I searchbared and could not find anything. i live in CT and there arent really any spectacular places to build kickers around my house. there is a big hill at the elementary school a couple houses down form me but its flat on top and flat a the bottom, no hill flat hill. then there is a hill in a neighbors yard that is like the same way, only a little bit smaller. both are pretty steep, but how should i set up a kicker. should I make it at the top and skate into it, make it partway down the slope so i can get speed?help my fellow NSers.
Sometimes I think the surest sign that intelligent life exists elsewhere in the universe is that none of it has tried to contact us
if you can get yourself a tow-in or a push-in from a car or something, then building the kicker at the top of the hill will be fine, but if you're just getting the speed all by your lonesome, you're gonna need to put it partway down the hill so you can get some speed
I dream of a better tomorrow... where chickens can cross roads and not have their motives questioned.

probably best to put it a litttle way down the hilll for speed unless you have tow in, then put it at the top.........also you may have done this, but look at places you might be able to drop in through trees and build a kicker right at the edge of the woods if there is a hill to land on, I know there are a lot of places like that in New England. When I build backyard kickers at home, I usually just build a micro jump and gather as much snow as possible for the landing. and just build it up. also you could consider dropping in off a building and maiking a pump track type thing (some rollers to pump off, might be able to generate enough speed, and if nothign else will be fun to butter around on
