Default Backyard Jib Ideas?

I have a ramp sitting around in the backyard and am wondering what some good box ideas would be.

Personally, I think a good ol' culvert would be an awesome jib. If you can find an orphan one around town, then you have a sick little jib for free basically.

I used 2x6x10' lumber screwed together on edge to make a base about 10.5 inches wide. Its a bit heavy but I feel that helps keep it in place. Then I ran to Home depot and bought 2 10' pieces of 1x6 vinyl board that I screwed to the top. If you get the vinyl garage door jambs one side has recessed ribs that you could screw into so your screws dont gouge your base. Then I screwed some short 2x10's to the bottom to get it up off the ground. It slides like a dream and I didn't even have to wax it. I know its pretty plain jane but its good practice so I dont eat shit in front of all the young park rats.

I kinda want to see this! Do you have any pictures of it?


Also I am currently finding something to make a jib rail out of too. Right now in my personal terrain mess I have; two 35 gallon barrels buried to make kickers and one plastic 55 gallon barrel to make a little bigger one.

Its pretty ghetto but you know those small square recycling bins that are green. pretty fun but your amount of tricks gets limited pretty fast. Best thing I got was a 270 to lip and 180 switch tail 180 off

I've also seen people session small boats. Just flip it upside down.

I've been trying to find one of those big black ribbed tubes. I think they're primarily used for drainage. They would be goot for presses/grinds if you put them length wise down the hill, or great to pop over/tap if you put it horizontally.
