I am interested in purchasing something to design a large drop in, jump, and landing. I am willing to spend some money, so I am not going to be purchasing orange fencing. I do not believe snowflex sells small quantities to individuals like this. Any other suggestions? I would like to try to stay away from Astro Turf, or anything that would tear you up.
Which brings me to my original question. What companies? Snowflex, seems like they specialize in huge projects, I highly doubt they just have extra material laying around. And plus this isn't going to be a backyard setup, this will be used for a REAL jump, not rails.
Advantages are that you can carve and set spins off of Msnow way better than snowflex. Snowflex doesn't work well unless you irrigate it. Msnow can be used dry. You can just attach Msnow to plywood base to create your drop in and lip, and it will be fast as long as your design doesn't suck.
Are you actually trying to build a dry slope kicker with a landing hill or are you building a rail set up?
Check out the build a jib cult and view the videos that are posted in there. It's tough enough getting a drop in a lip to be functional. If you are talking about building some kind of backyard kicker with a landing hill, you are going to be spending some coin. You also need to look at whether the surface will need to be watered and soaped. If so, you need to think about how much that is going to cost: Water bil and the soap will do a number on your lawn. If you do figure out a way to do it, please post pics and video. If you succeed, you will be elevated almost to creedman672 status.
I am thinking of possibly doing Msnow for the in run because it seems the fastest, and maybe doing some sort of astro turf combo with misting water and soap. This isn't going in my backyard so no worries about the lawn.
