Spring is comin, so take that tarp off your half-pipe and get out there !
Skating a half-pipe is classic. It allows for elementary tricks, transitions, and combos. Dropping into half-pipes also helps you with graduating and dropping into pools or bowls.
Half-pipe is proven to help snowboarders take their skills to the pavement as well as surfers who are trying to enhance their balance.

Based on the fun that most people have on half-pipes, it actually promotes motivation to build a half-pipe. Most people roll with building ones out of wood but with excellent sheets of skatelite or skateboarding approved surfaces. I still remember the one we had behind our college campus house, and that was the best break in between classes. I am sure other readers can relate to this.
