SunRamp’s new HX series now includes a half pipe. Technically, the HX models are for residential use, but youth groups, YMCAs, camps, military bases and communities also can purchase the inexpensive half pipes. The new HX Mini Ramp is 8 feet wide and comes in 3-foot, 4-foot and 5-foot heights. Budget-friendly pricing enables small groups from coast to coast to get a portable half pipe. Use your half pipe at camp in the summer and then bring it indoors for the winter season.

The premium 3.0 choice is stainless steel, which is ultra-tough and virtually maintenance-free. The Skatewave 3.0 system lets planners create a huge array of custom-configured obstacles, multi-level platforms and expansive skate plazas. These designs can be reconfigured at any time to provide a new skating experience.
