I am having troubles getting onto the other side of my halfpipe mini-ramp (really mini its only about 2 and a half feet tall.) I can drop in just fine but how do i get up? do i throw my arms forward with everything i have? do i try to heeljump? is my ramp to small? (only about 2 and a half feet of flat between the inclines) its only about 1 and a half feet wide too... might that have something to do with it? i almost have it and i installed a bar next to it to try to help me out but that doesnt do as much as i thought it would. I need some help!! Confused i have grinding plates and am trying to land on those but i just cant get up!

Nope - to my knowledge .. no one has ever been able to pump to the other side of a halfpipe in FATs. You can drop in (a tad dangerous but doable) .. and you can plant and grind .. still fun if you're just tooling around.

G'Luck.

PS - getting to other side = learning to pump.

Aye, what Merlyn said: pumping. It's all about bending your knees a little and pushing up at every curve to give yourself a little more momentum. Smile
