Creating a skateable Jersey Barrier from scratch?
« on: May 19, 2020, 05:10:35 AM »
When I mean from scratch I mean already made but with no tweeks. Not like Iím gonna mold the concrete myself.

Thereís a lot of construction going on in my city and a couple streets away is a street thatís maybe quarter mile long of nothing but freshly dropped off barriers along the side of the road. How hard would it be to make one of those skateable? Itís on a street where 99% of all frats and sororities are and itís the street next to a major university, so major diy wonít be possible.

I was thinking about going with a couple old shirts for the base, a yard advertisement sign for transition,  wax, and xtra heavy duty duct tape to keep everything in place.

Sound good? Do you have anything else youíd recommend? Thanks in advance!!

Sounds really easy to undo your work if you're not planning on redoing it every time you want to skate it.
I take everything I said back. The board hit me in the nuts for the first time ever today, because i was wearing these shits.

You don't have to do anything to a barrier to make them skateable

Whatever you add just makes them easier to skate

I apologize for bumping old threads but this seems relevant:
