Anyone here ride them? I want to build one? Looking for advice on good specs for one? If you've actually jumped into one your opinion would be appreciated

make sure it has enough foam, might sound stupid but seriously i rode this foam pit at a park about a year ago and you just about sink to the concrete bottom.

Ya man I'm going to side the edges with matresses I think then have a lid sealed from rain and snow it's going to be expensive as fuck but if I think of it the prices of me doing 2 or 3 whistler trips it would probably cost the same ......myswell build it myself and be able to ride it whenever I want

My idea right now is 15 feet wide 20 to 22 feet long and 6 feet deep......I'm just wondering if that's deep enough

Plenty I reckon.

I've seen some dodgy foam pits made out of a skip bin and a bunch of foam.


But foam prices are a killer!

You could probably just cut up mattresses or couch cushions if you really needed to

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

I have one at the local park that I used to ride every day.
tbh. They suck. Ive seen so many people get injured in the foam pit worse than they would have trying it on wood. Ive personally been injured into the foam pit. My
advice is- DON'T do any tricks requiring you to remove your hands or feet unless you know for sure that you can land them! And DONT GET COCKY!
One guy who works at my local park tried a whip into the foam and busted his teeth out.
I tried a fat ass tuck no hander and landed nose first ontop of my bike and rammed my gut into my stem. It was black and purple for weaks.
One kid who was a really good rider tried a flip without knowing anything about.them and smashed his head on the take off.
The trick better be worth it, because foam pits are surprisingly dangerous.

When I and everyone I witnessed get hurt it had nothing to do with the net. Its because people dont understand youre falling 10 feet with a 25lb piece of metal. Everyone underestimates that.
So yeah, if you fuck up and bail, youre okay because of the foam. But now you have a chunk of metal with sharp edges and shit sticking out falling wherever it wants including on top of you. And landing ontop of your bike is one of the worst feelings. When you get cocky and try these bangers into the foam pit, youre giving up bike control. So if you dont land it, your bikes gonna do what it wants whether it be land beside you or land with a pedal in your mouth. I dont ride the foam pit anymore after the few incidents ive had in it. Most of the tricks I do are easier to learn fly out anyway.
