Default snowboarding on turf

ya i have a small hill in my yard that i had boxes and rails set up on all winter i was planning on buying strips of turf for the runway and landing and just putting a hose at the top to run water down. i just want to make sure its going to be fast enough. Because i dont have to carve at all on my hill its just straight down.

More managable than turf is indoor/outdoor nylon carpet. Thats what camp woodward uses for their summer fake snow. They just wet it.

hey nitro boarder where are you in wisconsin? and a big wet tarp with some dish soap works okay for a little run in but dont try to turn or you'll tear the hell out of it or eat shit.
