No. PayPal is set up to receive credit card information, and transfer money. In the checkout system, you have the option of using a major credit card or a PayPal account. The customer would then fill out the information requested and that's it!!!
Do you make custom skateboard ramps?
We can design and build custom ramps, but the ramps we produce in our warehouse are the ones on the website. All our ramps are pre-cut and pre-drilled. To design a custom ramp would require our draftsman to design drawings using a special program for our computerized router- so costs can be high for custom skateboard ramps. Take a look at our new page to learn more about custom skateboard ramp designs and information.
What is a computerized routing table?
It is a machine that can cut large sheets of wood on a special table. Above the table is a mechanical router that can change bit sizes and move very fast cutting pieces of wood exactly as it is programmed. This ensures every slope and every hole is cut so perfectly that the speed and exactness would be impossible to duplicate by hand.
How easy is it, really, to build your ramps?
Each skateboard ramp kit comes with pre-cut and pre-drilled boards. The instructions manual has photos and the screws are already pre-counted. These skate ramps are extremely simple to install. Our video page shows a clip of two young skater moms building a quarterpipe ramp it less than an hour. If they can do it, anyone can!
What surface should I put the skateboard ramp on?
Halfpipes can be placed on grass, dirt, gravel or concrete. The surface has to be as level as possible. Quarterpipes need to be placed over concrete, cement, or asphalt. Fortunately, the quarterpipes are mobile and can be moved in and out of the garage, driveway or side yard.
How long will my ramp last?
The structure of these ramps can last a lifetime. These skateboard ramps do require the basic treatment and care. For starters, coat any outdoor ramp with Skatepaint. The use of a plastic tarp is also very helpful. We've had clients that have had their ramp for over 7 years. Our skate ramps are designed for skateboard abuse, but they still need to need the basic and simple care.
Are plastic ramps any better than your wooden ramps?
Wooden ramps are the riding choice of top pro skaters. Tony Hawk doesn't ride cheesy plastic ramps! Any professional skater that build their own personal skateboard ramp will always create the ramps with wood. Our ramps are more durable, stronger, and will out last any plastic out there!
