I made a similar one bout 3 months ago. I used 2, 8ft 2x4's and 1 2x6 then wrapped it in astroturf. I rasie one end up on to a 2.5 foot stool ollie up on to it and practice nose presses sliding down it. I'll also put both ends up on the 2.5 foot boxes and practice ollieing up on to it different ways. Practicing sticking the landing and different methods of popping back off

I built one of these for free today, here's how. I took a 4 foot long 8" diameter log and threw it on the ground. Then I took some smaller logs and split them into 4 wedge shaped peices with an axe. Then I put the wedges under the ends of the 4 ft log on either side chocking it into place. Then I kicked it and jumped on it and it was solid so good to go.
If anyone, like myself, has been a skeptic as to whether this is A)a good way to gain confindence getting onto rails during your off season, or B)a fucking rediculously difficult workout, then you can put that shit to bed because this is both.
I'm in good shape and this shit had me panting and sitting down and my feet muscles (which I didn't even know feet had) were screaming and it was also pretty fucking fun.
So if you were on the fence about wanting to make one of these, as a former skeptic, I would recommend it.

I choose this as this is pretty close to the actual size of a rail. Trying to make it as realistic as possible so when I do hit the snow the feeling will be similar and the muscle memory and balance would be as close to actual as well.
I'm sure you could easily get a PVC pipe and give it a try.

There are clips of them on youtube with pvc pipe on them.

I've been working less on the jibbing/pressing stuff and more on balance. So I just jump on 50/50 then 180 off bs/fs, etc... I've also tried ollieing while on and trying to land it and stay on. I haven't tried to 180 while on and land still on, but that may be a good idea too. I'll try jibbing and pressing after I actually learn to make it down a green...
Oh who am I kidding, I'll be trying to press and nose block the next time I strap in.
