This is a small file for people who want to build skateboarding ramps, but don't have or don't know where to find ramp plans. This file does not contain any actual ramp plans. This file was originally created by Adam Bender. But i have been given permission to update it and post it to the alt.skate-board newsgoup.
There are some plans at Heckler for several types of ramps. TumYeto has plans for half and quarter pipes, as well as a funbox and pyramid. Crude Skateboards also has some plans. Halfpipe plans can be found here. Whitefish also sells ramps plans. David's (me) Ramp Plans site A file on building ramps can be found here. There are links to many ramp resources here. A help file on building ramps is available at DansWORLD.
The Ultimate Skateboard Book by Albert Cassorla (1988, ISBN: 0-89471-564-X) and Skateboarding by Kevin Wilkins (1994, ISBN: 1-561368-377-5) both have ramp plans in them. Both are available from Running Press Book Publishers at: Running Press Book Publishers 125 South Twenty-second Street Philadelphia, PA 19103-4399
The Ultimate Skateboard Book is $9.95, Skateboarding is $12.95, and shipping & handling is $2.50 per book, but try your local bookstore first.
The Ultimate Skateboard Book has plans for a 36" launch ramp, an 8'x8' vertical wall, a 4'x4' quarter pipe, and a halfpipe with a 42'x16'4" base, 9' of transition, 1.5' of vert, and a deck, but no roll-in. It also lists the materials and their estimated price. However, I personally have built the quarter pipe, and the directions had some obvious mis-measurements and the price estimate was about half of what I paid.
Skateboarding has plans for a 3'6" quarter pipe with an optional 4' deck, a 8' long, 24" high mini-spine ramp, a pyramid with a 8' square center, a rail slide that you can customize to any length, and two 8'x24" hump ramps with a 32" high rail slide built in the middle. These plans are written by Tim Payne, who is a professional ramp builder, and also show how to attach Masonite and coping. There is a materials list for each one.
