Snowboard jump

If i was to build a snowboard jump out of wood for the summer (ill us powderpak or astroturf for roll in) what kind do you think i should build. One like a mini mega or jump and small two foot one to flat. I was thinking a kicker that launches me high but not too far. i have the speed worked out already. so how would i do that.

Summer sesh time!!!

Yeah, you really don't want to land flat. A two foot one is fine flat, but bigger ones should have angled landings or your knees will kill you.

Yea that pretty much sums it up. I was also wondering how high should the jump be to launch me high? If it was a 5 foot jump at a 55-70 degree angle at the peak of the jump. But if the jump was only 3 feet hih i wouldnt need as much wood. Do you think a step up would be better?

Make sure you have a video camera rolling when you hit it and post a clip here.
