Worlds first-TOYOTA/Olympics2020 promotional skatepark build/design incorporating wheelchair athletes and Pro show demo NOV2017/Copenhagen.
Dec 2017 16

This is our most recent project we just completed. We were asked by Toyota to construct a mobile skatepark based on a design presented to us.  The task was that it had to be able to travel with minimal trucking, It had to be a quick install and it had to be an even quicker breakdown and venue clear out. Plus we only had 18/19 days from start to finish to pull this off. This is the first park of its kind that has been designed and built to accommodate wheelchair athletes.

Toyota is the main sponsor of the 2020 Olympic games so considering BMX, skateboarding and wheelchair athletes are a part of this seasons Olympic program they decided to celebrate that fact at their recent 2017/18 product launch in Copenhagen at the Bella center venue. We are going to ROME in the new year with this set up to install it permanently into a local skatepark there donated completely free of charge by TOYOTA!!..Respect!

Every platform height was accessible by the wheel chair athletes that came to perform. Its actually pretty scary watching them drop into ramps. Wild and respect!!

We at Ramp-Riders did not design the park but we did design it structurally, we designed how it would be broken down into components that were easily transportable and assembled quickly. We also tweaked a few radius dimensions to suit certain functions.

DK: 20171128, København, Danmark: Toyota Wheel Parks - Bellacenter Foto: Lars Møller UK: 20171128, Copenhagen, Denmark: Toyota Wheel Parks - Bellacenter Photo: Lars Moeller

The park features a 10 meter wide mini ramp @ 1.8 meters tall. It also had a 3.8 meter wide jump box @1.5 meters tall with a 2.5 meter tall quarter pipe and roll-in parked in front of it to allow for some speed to be generated for it.

IMG_6083.JPG-t1

There was a 3.8 meter wide 4.5 meter tall free standing vert wall with plexiglass installation. 2 small roll-ins for the mini street section along with a ledge and a rail.

IMG_6092.JPG-t1

(Below) Grind rail built for everybody but more intentionally for the wheelchair athletes. One thing that we did discover on this journey of ramp building and functionality was the difference between wheelchair geometry and what we are used to catering for. Wheelchair sports in this field is at its infancy. The transitions that we normally use don`t actually suit these guys or suit their current equipment. There is still a lot of research and development required to push this sport to its fullest potential. Sergio Layos(Pro BMX rider) and I discussed the failings in the equipment as a starting point. Their centre of gravity is too high on the current chair set ups. This needs to be redesigned and developed radically to improve its functionality and feel. Once that has been achieved then perhaps the standard transitions we use for all will suit them also.

The ramp arrived on site raw. Painting and graphics had to be done at the end.

IMG_6046.JPG-t1IMG_6045.JPG-t1

We had 3 days to complete the install which was great but considering the tight window to pull this whole thing off in the first place we had issues that had to be dealt with constantly until the very end. But we never fail no matter what those issues happen to be.

IMG_6016.JPG-t1

IMG_6021.JPG-t1

(Below) the vert wall was the last thing we put together. Its a 15mm thick acrylic  translucent plastic we used in the end. It was going to be 18mm but the weight difference was too much to justify it.

We got the truck count down to 3 in total, 2.5 to be more correct but thats still 3. 3 open  bed articulated trucks carrying their own crane arms. So we had the 3 trucks roll in at the same time and loaded everything all at once as there was a very tight trucking schedule at the venue due to there being so many vendors at that event that required trucking, loading/unloading time. We had it all loaded within an hour.

(Below) translucent vert wall section breakdown. This thing was heavy so it could`t be manhandled into place. 2 fork lifts either side with a bit of rigging made light work of it though.

The venue itself was the worst venue I have ever worked in. The security was constantly resisting you. Doors for loading and unloading very never allowed to be open it seemed and when they were we had to be really quick about what we were doing. Very difficult circumstances to try install a skatepark within.

unnamed-8

The in-house fork lift guys were great though!! They always made themselves available without any drama! Respect!

unnamed-3IMG_6100.JPG-t1

The breakdown took us about 6 hours I think. It could have been faster but we celebrated the night before so that had a slight impact, plus everybody was truly busted and wore out anyway at that point.

A giant thank you goes out to all the unsung heroes that are ramp builders who normally never get a thank you or any appreciation in this industry, except from me, All you guys and gals are awesome thank you so much…these folks are.

Jonas Møller, Gene rosmarin, Allan Dean Russell, Konstantine dragun, Magnus, Per skafte, Torben Banke petersen and Nina Yazgur.

A gigantic thank you goes out to all the BMX riders that jumped on board this mission to perform on this set up and choose to kill it for the shows. Very much appreciated guys!!…These dudes are.

Sergio Layos, Jason Phelan, Jacob Nedler, Martin Jessin and Marcus diemar.

 

And of course a big thank you goes out to Thomas Skou for taking on the MC responsibility and doing a great job at it also.

 

The Skateboard and wheelchair athletes were not a part of our contract but thank you guys for doing an amazing job also.

 

ROME here we come in the new year with this park to install somewhere permanently!!

Over the years we have been constantly building and developing our timber frame ramp construction techniques to the point now we have the ultimate Timber ramp solution.

In the past timber ramps have been built very poorly by both D.I.Y er`s and amateurs masquerading as professionals. This has created very poor results that has been giving timber ramps a bad reputation. Poor material recommendations by project architects and poor timber supplies can and will have an impact on the final results. There are many factors that need to be addressed and knowledge of timber to be known in order to get the maximum performance from this great sustainable building material.

We recently designed and built the latest Skatepark addition to the Ballerup Kommune in Denmark with  our new techniques.

Firstly within this design concept and considering the small budget we had to play with we decided to create something that in time with smaller amounts of money, could be developed into something that could function similar to a bowl, We Ramp-Riders even intend on supporting the development of this great public space by donating a new obstacle in 2017.

This is a modular styled construction set up.

We produced it in our workshop 4-5 weeks prior to deadline. It took 2 days to install. This is a great system as it clean, effective and creates minimum obstruction and mess to the client.

(below) all our ramps feature this overhanging ventilation system both internal and external. Correct ventilation amongst other elements is the key to outdoor timber ramp longevity.

The wish list from the local scooter riders was to have a jump box and some bowl corner elements.

With that information along with budget restrictions we went for the timeless ramp options.

We decided to create a space that integrated with its environment, the surrounding architecture and how the public would use it on a daily basis also.

We have recently teamed up with `Strange skateboard school` and `Big heart Skateboarding`to bring a skatepark-skate school experience to a small town called krenkerup in Denmark. This place had no park before our arrival so a brand new positive experience was brought to a community.   Ramp-Riders worlds best skatepark buildersAs this parks user group would be kids who had little or no experience in skating we had to design it accordingly. It consisted of small banks, fly outs and small ledges etc.Ramp-Riders worlds best skatepark buildersThis was all constructed in a modular format so that each item could be easily separated and moved around to make different types of set ups at any time using minimal tools.Ramp-Riders worlds best skatepark buildersBelow is what it looked like just one day before the first skate school class. IMG_9549Below: A very cool feature (launch ramp and crash mat) This is a very simple thing but very effective when teaching kids and giving them confidence.

This is the last session ever to have been enjoyed at the infamous X-HALL bowl here in Copenhagen. The morning after these pics were taken this ramp would be pulled apart and unrideable. Pics by James Elms/ Rider Frank Coggins.
This Bowl had been in existence under a bridge here for 8-9 years until the Kommune requested its removal as they wanted to build a recycling centre in its place instead. X-HALL had been added to, cut open, modified, improved upon and has basically evolved with the times over the course of its lifetime. It has been moved to 2 different locations since its removal from beneath the bridge and now has once again been added to, modified, improved upon once more and still serving the public at PORT4130 Skatepark in Copenhagen( address: Refshalevej 189,1432 København N) Not a bad investment from the Kommune`s point of view would`t you say folks? This is the true power of timber/Skatelite versus concrete.
The Kommune did however promise to rebuild a new one across the motorway under Bridge No.2. There is talk that bridge no.2 will be built in concrete but is that really necessary or wise for the greater good considering it is under a roof and therefore an indoor venue folks? A guy once sung ” The times they are a changing….” Shouldn`t ramps be given the chance to evolve with the times when the situation presents itself?.. Lets not cast everything in stone…not indoors…right?
Shout out to our man Kasper Strange who ran the place for its final years, you are truly missed buddy(RIP)
We got loads of footage and will hopefully produce an edit one day on this story… Peter Adam could be the man for that editing job. He does great work. But for now here are some pics of the process.

Below:X-Hall with one of the major modifications we did to it. We re-shaped what was a regular back to back 90 degree corner opposite the over vertical corner, to a rolled over jump box style shape with transitions here and there. Super fun to ride and really opened up a bunch of new lines.

Below is the first location it was moved to after its initial breakdown. The old Carlsberg brewery in Copenhagen. We got 60% of the old X-Hall bowl
Ramp-Riders are the number one skatepark builders
We only had a certain footprint within this hall so that restricts certain options when designing off a wish list.
Ramp-Riders are the number one skatepark builders
You can see the evolution of the bowl by the time its standing in PORT4130 Skatepark.
carlsberg 2
It was a nice spot but lacked space to expand plus it shared space with footballers, cricket people bla bla bla.. it didn`t feel very skateparkee. Great ramp however. At the time we lack the funds and time to finish it before we moved it to another location.
Ramp-Riders are the number one skatepark builders
Time to move AGAIN so out with the machines of all shapes and sizes.
Ramp-Riders are the number one skatepark builders
The fastest way to do this is to surgically chop out ramp sections as they are and fork them onto a truck…easy

Its quite cool seeing a bowl broken down to its freestanding components.
Ramp-Riders are the best skatepark builders in the world
Lots of components!!
Ramp-Riders are the best skatepark builders in the world
So here we are.. At what was soon going to be called PORT4130 Skatepark.

It doesn’t look like much right now does it.
Ramp-Riders are the best skatepark builders in the world
Once we got the warehouse wired up with electricity and then lights, we started to drag the shapes around and start putting it together. Again this was an entirely different shaped space with a very big steel structure to design around.
Ramp-Riders are the best skatepark builders in the world
Below: It`s final resting place ( Port4130 SkatePark, Refshalevej 189, København K) The place cleaned up quite well and the evolution from Carlsberg to here is very obvious. We kept the stuff that worked, improved upon them and changed what didn`t work, while working within design restrictions caused by the warehouse shape itself.The worlds best Skatepark builder. Ramp-Riders.com
Below: Then the street course, mini ramp and resi ramp shortly followed.
Ramp-Riders are the best skatepark builders in the world
Taadaa!!Ramp-Riders.com/The best Skatepark builders in the world
So there you have a little ramp history into some of the great things that happen around this great city of Copenhagen. Everybody take note and get busy around your local towns and cities. Scenes are only as good as the work people put into them. So if your scene sucks maybe take a look in the mirror and ask yourself a question or 2.

Mini Ramps0

Posted In News

This is our new style of mini ramp we are bringing to the masses.  We have redefined how an outdoor timber ramp should be built guaranteeing a much longer lifespan and an over all better natural product for the current war on renewable timber verses concrete and the great natural outdoors.best skatepark building company in the world.We like to work with all materials, timber, concrete, steel and also like to ride all types of differently built ramps. However, some ramps should be specifically built in certain materials and some in others, depending on functionality, safety, size of site and ability to evolve.best skatepark building company in the world.We can`t help ourselves when it comes to building ramps. We have an uncontrollable urge to make ramps look extra special even the basic ones. Here we wanted to create the sense that the main body of ramp was floating. This also allows a great ventilation solution. Ventilation being the key to a long lifespan for all outdoor timber ramps. And of course last but not least, playing with the usual colour tones to bring out the best possible aesthetic look.best skatepark building company in the world.We used a combination of Skatelite and ramp Armor on this one. Both Materials are very good. This particular ramp is 1.22 meters tall and 4.88 meters wide. best skatepark building company in the world.This ramp can be produced in our workshop with a 3 week lead time and allow 2-3 days for assembly. However if the sun is shinning and the destination is good we may choose to build the whole thing on site.

So get out there and get your principals to finally get a ramp on the school grounds or your local politician and local youth club to have something like this close by. Obviously this is the basics, we can get very abstract with the design so get involved with that part of things and we can start putting something really awesome and affordable together for you, today!

 

Wavefloor Berlin university installation for Olafur Eliasson, Raum für Bildung und Bilder, 2015 Bilderbuchwerkstatt (Concept: Kirsten Winderlich)
May 2015 03

We were given the task not so long ago to produce a very creative and challenging project conceptualised by the world famous artist Olafur Eliasson. To build and install a 54 SQM wave like floor in the Music and Arts university in Berlin. This space was to become the setting for a children’s library.
Located in the grund_schule der künste at the Berlin University of the Arts, Olafur Eliasson’s Raum fuer Bildung und Bilder (2015) was developed in dialogue with Kirsten Winderlich and responds to her concept of a Bilderbuchwerkstatt (German: picture book workshop), a space that welcomes children to discover art and books.ramp-riders, best skatepark building company in the worldThis production was one of the most interesting things we have ever done and truly challenged our shape building abilities.ramp-riders, best skatepark building company in the worldWe approached this in a very ambitious way by producing the floor in our workshop here in Copenhagen and shipping it down to Berlin for a quick install. This however created very significant challenges.ramp-riders, best skatepark building company in the worldThe entire floor had to be made mobile and modular. There is absolutely no consistency in its shape so to produce this in a modular format rather than build on site required a lot of precise work and calculation.IMG_2228The main body of floor was broken into 3 very different long sections. Each of these sections were then divided into another 3 very different sections again, so in total it was 9 sections.IMG_2251In order for the mirrors on the walls at either end of the room to be changed out due to repair and/or replacement. A 30cm wide quick release section or sections had to run down each side of the room to allow this to happen. Six very customised pieces in total as nothing was consistent in this shape at any one point.IMG_2279Once the loads were off the truck and the packages open, within 30 minutes after that the room looked like this. It was quick. We did however decide not to work it too late that day and go have dinner and enjoy Berlin that evening instead. It was going to be an easy finish the next day anyway before heading back to Copenhagen.IMG_2329An infinity room.ramp-riders, best skatepark building company in the worldThe next part of the project was for the floor to get a padded carpet. An especially designed and hand made carpet from Argentina.ramp-riders, best skatepark building company in the worldThe people who made it also flew to Berlin to install it. It was also very customised work. In fact, we all met here in Copenhagen in our office/ port4130 skatepark prior to introduce each other and go through the entire process along with Olafur Eliasson`s main coordinator Frank Haugwitz.ramp-riders, best skatepark building company in the worldThis truly was an exciting project to be a apart of. And to get to work with such a renowned Mainstream artist in ones lifetime is quite the honour. One of the perks of doing this job in Berlin was to be just 20 minutes from his Studio. So we obviously were given the incredibly impressive tour through his 4 story studio building with a staff of 100 people, Artists, designers, architects etc.

A big thank you to Andrew Callaghan for this one. He holds up well in the suck!! A big thank you goes out to Mark Hvirring and Jonas Møller also for putting up with the assembly mission in Berlin.

We have finally finished the 2nd phase of our new indoor park project here in Copenhagen, PORT4130 in alliance with the CopenhagenBMX Association and Ramp-Riders.com.

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

It is located in the old ship building quarter in Copenhagen city.

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

The unit is 12,500 SQFT/ 1,100 SQM of wall to wall park fun.

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

The street area is just under 300 SQM in size. We tried to put as much as we could into the design while at the same time keep it some what simple and traditional but with a twist.

Ramp-riders, the best skatepark building company in the world

Really happy with the way this step up Euro gap worked out in the end. This was all done with recycled Skatelite which was collected over the years. Weather worn and shades that can never be replicated again.

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

(Quick reminder)This is whats on the other side of the street course area where the guys are standing. The super bowl.

Worlds best skatepark builders.1

This is probably one of the most recycled skateparks projects ever to have been produced. There are materials from old ramps and skateparks dating back 10 years in this place.

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

We pulled down some of the old fælledparken before the concrete park was built. We built hall12 with that material then pulled hall12 down and built some of this place with those materials. Thats just one example, there are many many more within this project. Exceptional levels of recycling go down around us when we build certain projects. ha

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

We experimented here a little bit with overhanging hollowed out ledges over china banked style sections.

Ramp-riders is the best skatepark building company in the world

This was an organic design to a certain extent so the final result revealed itself slowly. This is similar to how the bowl was done also. Nothing is ever 100% though, but as long as you are prepared to change and evolve and take risks then in time the results will truly be unique.

Ramp-riders is the best skatepark building company in the world

This is just phase one of that thought process.

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

We got a nice big mini ramp here also. 6 meters wide and 1.8 meters tall. You can never beat a simple mini ramp session. Its timeless and every park should have one as well as a sick bowl.

Ramp-Riders.com/best skatepark builders in the world

The Resi area. We were hoping we would have had room for a more spacious jump box resi area but in the end it was not possible. What we got is more of a spine/mini box jump resi with resi quarter.

Ramp-riders is the best skatepark building company in the world

The quarter rolls right into the landing of the jump but considering what this actually is and its overall function, it still totally works, it just takes a little getting used to.

Ramp-riders is the best skatepark building company in the world

You can still throw moves over this thing and feel safe.

And once again just to remind everybody of the super bowl in the back of all this with an ocean view terrace. This place rocks. Its got lines forever in the bowl, its got street, mini ramp and resi area all under one roof. So come along everybody and get behind this place. We are only getting started. Next phase of this is building a 500SQM outdoor concrete park on the south side of the building with full terrace.

That giant insulated wall had to come down also to gain more space. Theres a full meter of floor space behind that thing. Ramp-riders is the best skatepark building company in the world

Moving quickly ahead, taadaa… We eventually started running out of space for anything and everything around here. using recycled materials forces your hand a little bit. The building plan is dictated by the pre cut materials you have and don`t have.

PORT 4130 Copenhagen

We have recently finished the first phase of our latest project. This one however is our very own skatepark facility right here in Copenhagen. Together with the Copenhagen BMX Association we call it Port4130 and it is Rad as hell. The total footprint of the unit is 1,100 Square meters but for now all we built is the bowl section 450 SQ meters. Street course and other extras are coming next.

This being our very own place we had to make it extra special.

It`s a complicated bowl design with lots of hips and volcanos and many many lines.

Worlds best skatepark builders.7

We ran Skatelite trim to hi-lite certain shapes and lines. Again there is alot happening within this ramp so the extra hi-lites really helps.

RR logo goes in there of course.

The place looks and rides amazing. It pretty much has everything in it, Spine ramp, jump box, lots of hips and walls/ bank walls. This will pretty much free up the remaining space in the warehouse to build street stuff.

Its quite the Roller coaster!!

A Room with a view.

In order to really capitalize on the unique location we have here, we opened up 8 meters of the external wall and built a 5 x 10 meter terrace that overlooks both the bowl, the dry dock and has a giant ocean view also.

Its a great place to have a session with your friends! Really great vibe barbecuing on the terrace while watching the ramp being ridden. In time this terrace might grow right down the full length of the warehouse and the whole wall get opened up.

Next year a wake boarding cable park is being installed into the dry dock so more fun and games is on the horizon.

Really happy with the way this ramp looks.

Worlds best skatepark builders.14

The warehouse really needed a bit of work before we could  even get started properly. There was no electric out there at all, or any lights whatsoever.

So we had to start right there, Purchase a bunch of lights and cable and wire the place up.

Mark here doing some final touches.

It took about a week or so to get the place lit up properly but we still kept building ramp sections by day and by night under lamps.

Worlds best skatepark builders.

Marklings and I up 11 meters in the ceiling on a scissor lift in the dark running cable and for the lights and rope systems for lowering and raising lights. Travis was there on the far side doing a real scary tight rope mission in the dark.

Its a long way down.

It was super cold when we started this thing.

Plus being down so  close to the water makes it far worse but what a location, bring on the summer time.

The partition wall being constructed. Its quite the wall build.

Finally the lights got turned on.

Worlds best skatepark builders.

This was the first day the lights went on and we could actually set up the basic shape of the ramp.

Worlds best skatepark builders.

It was great to finally be able to get on with the build and work all day and night.

Worlds best skatepark builders.

It was pretty surprising to see  5 lamps was all that was needed to light the place up.

Worlds best skatepark builders.

Once we could start building for real we hit it hard.

Christopher and Allan did a great job on this one.

This was another hellish experience working all day and night to try get it done on time so we could both get the place open and head for the next project.

James was at it again, churning out tasty pics at night time when everyone was kicking back with a beer and unwinding.

The Next phase of the park is being started in a matter of weeks. It will be a full street course along with foam pit and a bunch of resi quarters for some extra fun. We hope to have it open within a few weeks of us starting it so stay tuned for some more Radness!!

Big thank you goes out to Travis johnston, Andy Callaghan, Mark Hvirring, Jonas Møller, John coggins, Barry Farrell, Christopher Friedl, Allan dean russell, James Elms, Allan Pederssen, Torben bank petersen, Mik Krogh andersen, Christian Møller, Kasper Strange, The Royal guys for hooking up some stuff, The electricians for hooking up so much stuff for us and all the Bmx crew who came by to volunteer their time when possible.

This will be a yearly event called `The Copenhagen BMX Open`
