D Way jumps Great Wall

By now you’ve heard that Danny Way successfully jumped the Great Wall of China, he even back 360’d it to boot. Here are some fun facts about the super-duper ramp:

It is infact the World’s Biggest Skateboard Ramp

The Beijing MegaRamp featured a 120ft roll-in, a gap distance of 75-90ft across the Great Wall and a quarter-pipe height of 32ft.

The MegaRamp required in excess of 60,000 screws, 4,000 framework joists, 410 sheets of plywood and 200 sheets of specially manufactured Skatelite surface panels imported from the USA at a cost of $60,000.

Sixty laborers worked daily at the event site amid temperatures that peaked at 110 degrees in order to meet Friday’s deadline.

The final estimated cost of the MegaRamp is said to be close to half-a-million US dollars.
