So for the decking of the roll-ins to keep costs down of the ramps im designing and submitting to the skatepark board i am going to use OSB particle board. My question is. would it be fine if i spaced my supports at a foot instead of six inches if i use double ply of the OSB? thankss.

No... First using osb on a public skatepark is a horrible idea. Its okay for little projects at home but something that is going to be taking abuse like that its not a good idea and will cost the city more in the long run.

Secondly not using as many supports is also a horrible idea. When a bmxer rides over a transition it puts a ton of stress on the wood and it needs a ton of supports so you don't ride through the face of the ramp.

If your city is trying to build a park tell them the best way to do it is to build it properly, it keeps insurance rates down and makes maintenance less of an issue.

Nooo. It's a private park. The osb is just for the tops of the decks to the rollins. No transitions or anything out of osb. Rays has all there decks a d stuff built out of osb
