anyone looking to do some summer shredding check out midwarp.com, they offer stuff called "Msnow", like $8 a sq. ft. looks pretty cool. Not sure how well it works, but it looks to do the trick. I'm not sure of the cost of snowflex or other dry slope materials, but I'm sure this is a less expensive way to go.

That stuff does look pretty sweet, but I have a question for you.

Do you work for them?

I like the idea.  I just wonder how much you'd need to make a legit runway to a small rail or box.  I guess it depends on how far and how big you want to make it.  Could be bit costly, but I like the concept.

My friends and I are making a box and buying the material took up 2/3rd of the money we're spending on the jib setup.  We tried our best to make it as cheap as possible too by asking the vendor for discounts, tips. 

So if this is drastically cheaper it will make a huuuge difference.

1 post, advertising a product that nobody knows about, yes, I'd say he works for them.

The idea is pretty cool, and I checked out the website. The pics and video section has no pics or videos currently. It would be tough to buy a new product without seeing how well it works, and no one else really using it yet.

$8/sq ft is considered cheap? That's over $40 just for one board length/width! x 3 ramp width x 5 ramp length... $600 just for the jump surface?

I guess I'll be sticking to winter shredding.

I'm still hoping snowflex picks up, I've gotten to see that stuff and ride it. it's pretty sic. Or if you can find some cheap astro turf lube it up with some concentrated soap makes a pretty legit surface but it sucks to fall on

with shipping and taxes its around $10/ft. I dont think astro turf costs that much. granted you have to buy snogel it so it might even out the costs.

No Budashes, I don't work for them. I'm just into the backyard park thing. We're always trying to find something that works better than astroturf, but isn't super expensive to do. No, this stuff is not cheap. Our backyard needs about 20'x3' of this stuff, but I don't have the 600 for it right now. It would be worth it in the long run. But yeah, the top material is most of the cost of a dry set up. This is cheaper than some other materials we've seen. I think a longer shag astroturf would work a lot better than the regular stuff, but you're still looking at around $4-6 a sq. ft.
