Everyone without killer skatespots in the neighbourhood, don't worry anymore. This rail is fast, cheap and easy.
All you need is:
- 1 or 2 big blocks of wood
- A small metal pipe/rail
- A hammer and nails
- An electric drill
To start, drill some holes in the metal pipe.
Put screws in the holes you just drilled, put the pipe on the blocks, and screw the pipe onto the blocks.
If you did it right you'll have the base of the rail. Just one more thing to do!
Take a flat piece of wood to use hammer and nails to attach it to the bottom of the blocks. Make sure the bottom is really flat, or your rail will be wobbly.
To make the rail a little more stable, you can put some bricks on the base plate to hold it down.
You're ready to grind and slide!

looks like the part the pvc is on is a 2x6 with a 1 inch pvc pipe nailed to it
if you want it to b higher instead of doing on piece of wood and pvc pipe. take to wood pieces cut them to whatever height you want the rail to be. Take a flat piece of wood. nail it to one end of the pieces then use A metal rail or thick pipe of somesort and nail it to the other end of the wood piece. make sure that whatever you use for the actual rail is strong enough to hold your weight otherwise you will have to keep making them.
do you hav to make it oyt of pvc
instead i just got one high long block of wood carved a concave banking through the center of the wood and placed a rail inside the banking and nailed it on alot more steady and fun for long grinds and high of the ground to kick flip onto. :D
does it ever fall over? nice work
Yeah, isnt that rail very unstable? :/
