Default Snowboard Drop In

I'm looking to build a drop in in the woods behind my house. It needs to be long enough to hit a 16 foot box, some 3-4 foot kickers and a 12 foot battle ship, does anyone have any ideas?

thats the only picture of the drop in i have
but that thing is 9-10 feet tall and i had it at the top of my hill. i made a small roller and and the jump is in the middle of the hill. Its a 15-20 foot table and i got just the right amount of speed. i have a pretty small hill too.

check out these drop-ins, I posted this on thesnowboardrealms.team.com, before I discovered this awesome site...

For ours it's hard to see but we basically used milk crates, and wooden palettes 'borrowed' from the industrial district of town.

u can buy some drop ins that are designed to fit in a board bag but if u dont have that kind of cash I would just find a good A-frame latter, extend the top, and then just reinforce a slim piece of plywood that can be propped up against the latter. This type of roll in is portable, light, and easy to build.
