Default Snowboard kicker.

Has anyone tried to use those rubber kickers for skateboarding as a snowboard kicker? me and my friends are building a rail and a box in his back yard because he has a small slope and were wondering if it worked, if not could someone point me in the right direction to build a cheap one or something?
thanks.

I asked this last year. Some of the guys on here said it was just easier to build a ramp.

I'm in southeast Wisconsin and many times the snow doesn't cooperate and is very crappy for ramp building.
Not the mecca of mountains but we are out there trying to ride.

Just collect as much snow as possible. Grab it off the lawn, driveway, street, get a watering can. Keep packing the snow and pouring water on it, will be solid as ice lol.

i live in southeast wisconsin too. (delafield) and there is almost always enough snow. I have used those rubber ramps in the summer for summer sessions. but its much better to make jumps out of snow because you can change the size and shape whenever. \
if your interested check out my park on youtube
the yorktown jib park

They are!

But yeah, ice the shit out of the jump, use some logic and throw more snow on it so you arent actually going off a block of ice. Pretty simple, lasts all season and wont get broken. Want to change er around, bring out the ice chopper.
What I usually do is form it small, water it and keep forming it up and watering it each time.

You get a jump that gonna last.
