ChuckomodeWe’re going to build a jump into a lake at our cabin and I’m looking for advice. I want to make it the most like a big park jump where you can get doubles around comfortably and yank triples (35-45 ft). What is a standard angle of launch for these type of jumps? Also, about how high does a person reach on these type of jumps and how high is the jump itself? I need those units to calculate the run-in height and ideal velocity at the top of the jump. If anyone knows anything about building jumps into water and/or the dimensions and angle of said kicker let me know. Thanks.
Heres a good analysis of jump dynamics, though you may have to recalculate adjusting for the increased drag coefficient since they didnt take into account the 4xl pants and tall T you should be wearing.
