Allo! plywood quarter?

Has anybody here rode a plywood quarter on your boards? I'm in the air about making one for my backyard jib setup. Do you think the plywood will absolutely kill the bottom of the board? What about possible damage to the edge?

Im a little scared, lol. It would be soo sick to do the rail and have a little quarter to stall after for a little extra out of the run, but i'm just uncertain if its a good idea or not.

Any help will be greatly appreciated!

It's not going to hurt your board it's just going to be sticky as hell.

i made a wooden quarter pipe like 5 years ago intended for skateboarding. during the winter i dragged it over to my hill to use as a drop in to get speed for another quarter pipe i made out of snow at the bottom of the hill. the wooden one is always at the top of the hill so i have never tried to go off of it but it works great for dropping in on as long as there is snow on top of the wood.
so if you want to make a quarter pipe out of wood it would probably work but you might want to put grooves or something on the part your riding on so the snow will stick on it better.

or better yet just make one out of pure snow its a lot easier to customize it and make it as big or as small as you want. its just a lot of shoveling.

heres a picture of mine 2 seasons ago

yeah, the stickyness part i forgot about while posting lol. I'm sort of thinking with enough water and snow, get a nicely packed transition on top.

I would build it purely out of snow if we got enough. But living in Southern Ontario im limited to the amount of snow.

I got a few other ideas kicking around aswell.
