Skimboard Rail Building - Rollercoaster rail

Building a roller coaster rail for your skimboarding trip.
The main idea is that you cut out the sides of the skimboard rail in the shape you want from plywood. You then use 2x4’s to connect the sides together and support the rail. Cut out a rectangle that is the width of your rail and the length of the top. Since the top of the skimboard rail is curved, use a piece of string to measure the curved length. Attach the rectangle to the top of the rail. Because the top of the rail is curved, soaking the top rectangle piece of plywood in water for several hours will help it bend easier. You can also use a thinner piece of plywood for the top (3/8” or 1/4" thick) for easier bending. Now attach the pvc. For help on attaching the pvc, see this post on skimboard rails.

Now get out there and get skimboarding!
