So, there's no snow in my town yet, but the mountains are nearby. Anyways, I'm getting into park riding, jibbing, what not and I was curious if I'm hurting my board by using a 4*4 fence post wrapped with a section of carpet? In the process of making a box and small rail for backyard practice once the snow comes, but was curious if the carpet or very solid wood post is hurting my board anymore than regular jibbing on a mountain.
Keep in mind I'm using an 11 year old Rozzy Nomad for the practice, lol. It will become my powder day only board this season. I bought a 2011 Ride Machete.
What are the possible surfaces I could use for my boxes? I know about plexi glass or lexan. Seen aluminum used before and puckboard seems to get used quite a bit too. I have all the access to wood I could want, but as for the other stuff for the surface of the box, I'm looking for cheap alternatives. I've thought about the PVC pipe along the top of the box too, although for that I'd like to get my hands on a large one in diameter, say a foot high, instead of putting a bunch together.
