I've recently started working on a new jump spot,.
Currently making a setup, the landing is about 2.5m high, my lip is about 1.6m
Any advice how I can raise the lip roughly 1/3rd of a meter? I've tried stacking dirt and packing but it takes forever and falls off the backs side,. also whats the ideal lip to landing ratio for a trick stepup?

any tricks or advice would help a ton Smile
thanks

The thing I have done to make my jumps bigger is taking a hammer or sledgehammer to bust up the to and wet everything down with water. Then take your shovel and scoop some wet dirt and slap it up where you need it. That Is what I do, it is a little disappointing to break a jump but it is easy to build up higher.

if you dont have access to water. the answer is never steeper first its wider. build wide front to back and side to side then go up

also currently winter so everything is soaked through. will post some before and afters next week.
