4' halfpipe traceable plan 16' wide w/ extension - shipping included


CODE: half_4_tp_ext_16w


The 4' halfpipe is our most popular template plan sold. When completed, the ramp is 29' long with 4' decks on both sides.

This is the perfect ramp for a beginner skater who wants to learn how to drop in and then progress to every grind or rock and roll variation, ollies, blunts or even small airs. The 4' halfpipe is too small for bmx or inliners to really enjoy but we've seen skateboarders who can barely drop in, progress to backside ollies over two panels within a few months and are not "bored" with its height. Don't worry about outgrowing it; this ramp remains fun forever. The 5' tall extension section of the ramp can be placed in whichever corner you would like. We have found that most regular footed skaters like it on the right side of the transition for airing up onto the extension (tricks like backside ollies to disaster, smiths or nose grinds). Goofy footed skaters would primarly want the extension on the left side of the wall. The 5' extension can be eliminated if desired (but you shouldn't).

A sample packet of the different ramp surfaces is included free of charge in every template plan. The packet is helpful in choosing colors as well as getting a feel of the different ramp surfaces. You will clearly see and feel that these surfaces are much different than masonite. You will also realize that there is not a similar surface available at your local lumber store. Feel free to perform tests on the surfaces - countersink them, saw them, submerge them in water, beat them with a hammer, - whatever.

Sample Packet Includes:
Drumlite Grade A in the brown color (outdoor)
Skatelite Pro in the natural color (outdoor)
Skatelite Pro OCC (outdoor green version with 50% recycled material)
Ramp Armor Deluxe in brown and tan colors (outdoor)
One 2" GRK Sheeting screw

Your plans were incredibly helpful. We built the ramp through a college club, and it would have been impossible to co-ordinate 25 or so 20 year olds without them. The suggestions for building techniques, and the lists of necessary materials for each part came in especially handy. The ramp is wonderful, and the local skate scene is really grateful. People have been coming from all over to shred it. The ramp is very fast too -- the Drumlite made a huge difference from the plywood. The transition is perfect, it's mellow enough for smooth grinds and steep enough for airs. In any case, this is a great ramp.


Hey we finally made up our minds! Your web site has great pictures and was very easy to navigate. I want to thank you for your patience with us. You took time and answered all of our questions. We were able to make a decision on which ramp we should build and look forward to receiving the materials from you. You are awesome - you will have to come skate our ramp if you ever get to Idaho!! We will send you pictures or video of the process! Thanks again, Susan


Dave Brooke Natrona Heights, PA - We started to build this halfpipe in early December 2001 as a Christmas gift for Chris. I bought the plans from Whitefish Skate Ramp Co. after searching the Internet for free plans. If you want to build any kind of ramp or half pipe, spend the money for the plans and templates from Whitefish. I could not have done this project without them . It took a total of about 50 hours to build this, but it is a first class structure that will last for a long time.


Hey guys: Everything went together in about 2 weeks. We just need to add some railings and some finishing touches. The plans were very easy to follow and I thank you for steering me in the direction of the 4 ft design. My 7 year old is doing some crazy tricks!!!! Again, thank you for the help!!!!! Regards, John Kranick


Scott Disler Yakima, WA - I was just writing to tell you that I received my plans and template on Thursday. I also would like to say thanks for everything. The template is perfect. The plans are amazingly easy to read and follow and whoever my wife or I talked to were really nice and helpful. There needs to be more companies in the world just like yours. Thanks again. Scott


Helen Owing Mills, MD - Dear Brendan, You've spoken to me on the phone a few times. Just wanted to let you know my 14 year-old son and I finally finished the 4-foot halfpipe we began last fall. We had all the framework and the most of the plywood layers up by Thanksgiving, but then the weather turned snowy and bitter cold around here, so we had to wait until the last couple of weekends to get the surface on. My sons and their friends are skating the ramp and they couldn't be happier. Thanks again for all your advice and "tech support" over the phone during the process. Although I have a lot of experience using drills, circular saws and jig saws, I have never built anything larger than a stretcher for a four by six-foot painting before. So I'm pleased with how smoothly it went considering it was the first time I'd ever built a structure of that size. The blueprint was invaluable, but the whole booklet was clear and helpful. My son has learned a lot in the process about woodworking. Best regards, Helen.
