I would not trust that thing i'd just save the $30 and get someone to/u build a box like this http://diyskate.com/ledge_01.html obviously labor will be more if you get someone else to build it for you. This seems easy too

Good luck..

Thanks for the tips. But I'm not good at building things yet i have to wait until my junior year to take shop class. So could the site build me a box and ship to my house? Or they are telling me what i need to do to build a box.

I don't fucking know it's just a how-to. Just go on craigslist and post a ad on gig's/labor or just search for one and get your dad or mom to talk to them or something someone will do it.

I wouldnt buy it man. but if you dont care about money and you are fine with replacing it when it folds down on you then yeah $30 is nothing. Thats like one dvd here and you get to ride this one but like a dvd it will break if you ride on it

Yea 30 is nothing i thinking of buying still because i want to learn feeble grinds i don't live close to a skate park. I don't want to go to a random spot to try to learn feeble. But you guys don't trust the box.

Yeah, get the box and i doubt you will be flying sidways into it anytime soon so it should hold up for a while.
But yeah it will be really good for learning tricks on. I made myself a 4ft flat bar to practice on and it helped me alot so the same should apply for you too

4 and 3/4 feet long is really short to learn grinds (unless it was icepicks or toothpicks). With that box you'd only really be able to go slow and feeble stall or do a feeble and just fall of the end. Like T-rider said build one that's 8 feet long, cause then you'll have time to really balance it and hop out and make it look clean

Thanks dude. I was wondering why it look smaller then the grind boxes i seen. So if i want to learn icepicks and toothpick should still buy it or should i learn feeble first.

You would be better off building a longer one. Then you can learn feebles but also ice and toothpicks. The last 2 are usually easier to learn on something shorter, so you could always build a longer box and then just ice or tooth the last foot, then as you get better work your way up to sliding the whole thing

I haven't built one myself as I don't run pegs ATM but my friend has a pretty decent one that his dad built. It seems pretty easy, and I can get pics of his if that would help

Spend the 30 on wood to make a 2 ft by 2 ft by 8 foot box.

You need about 6-8 2x4s and a sheet of plywood to cover at least the top and one side (We used the chip board aka OSB to save money). Then about 10-15 bucks for Angle or Tubing for coping on it, and a box of screws.

All together, MAYBE 50 bucks for a 2x2x8 box.

I have a detailed how to on youtube, it costs about $80 to make one, but if you didn't paint it and use different plywood you could probably get it down to around $50, however if you build it exactly how I show in the how to it will last you forever.

Here is the how to:
