Okay I i got one of those 1080 skate ramps, it was close out at 20 bucks **** yeah right?

OKay So, Each time I take a run at this thing, If I try to air off of it, I ethier case on my left, Or, I fall back,

When I dont try and air off it and just try pumping it, I'm normally fine, unless my wheel dosnt land stright and I **** the landing up.

Help? suggestions? can you even air off the thing with a bike?

unless im completely misunderstanding this
unless you mean jump not air

Those ramps are made for children dude. I'm not saying they aren't fun to haul ass at but in reality, I'm not sure if there is a certain way to actually air these things out with the technique of boosting and pumping.

My advice to you is to just go really really really fast at one and see how far you can go. Other than that, if you're looking to get some air, try making a nice wooden ramp or a dirt flyout even.

If you're trying to air a 1080 plastic ramp from walmart like a quarter pipe, don't. Just don't, please.

Most of the time I dont case at all, especially when I roll in from a hill top, Its just whenever I try to get more speed and get a little more height, thats when it happens. always on the left side.

when I hit front tire first and either my bike flips throwing me off, or when my wheel isn't straight on the landing and comes out from under me, every time, always hitting my left side.

Why waste $20 bucks on that in the first place? It's time to put on some big boy pants and ride something bigger than a 1 foot gap. BMX is about having fun but that's just humiliating. You will have a much better time on something bigger, it will be much more satisfying.

those black plastic wal mart ramps... they are what they are. if you have really good hop you can get alot of air off those. years ago i got close to 6 feet on one. they dont hold up very well.

Well I wanted to make a 7x5 quater, but parents shot me down on that. or building any kind of ramp so i saw the thing on clearance and though, what the hell, its a ramp, and its only 20 bucks, if it breaks oh well, if they toss it it was just 20 bucks, vs me building a quarter and probably having it be tossed by my parents.

Sorry, but I honestly think you would have a better time using a skateboard or scooter (or roller skates) with that ramp.

I always feel the same way, no place build anything really close to my house. And the only area for dirt jumps in town is practically owned buy other riders, so no changing anything.
