How to Build a Dirt Jump

I will try to teach you how to build a dirt jump

“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” 

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist


I like to build dirt jumps so I will teach you how to do it. In order for you to build a dirt jump you’ll need a few things. The first thing you need is a shovel. Do you use a shovel to shape and move the dirt. The second and last thing you will need is a source of water. This could be a hose or a watering can.

The first idea you have to think about when you’re building a dirt jump is The location. The location of your job is important because it can change the way you build your jump a lot. The best location to Build your jump is on a slight hill. The other thing you want to consider when you are choosing your location is the quality of the dirt. You want the dirt to have a very little amount of rocks and other things in it. If your dirt is good it will help your digging process.

The next step In building your dirt jump is to collect some dead logs from area the around where you are Building your jump. Once you have collected some dead logs you should organize them into a rectangle. You will use these dead logs in a rectangle to fill up space inside your dirt jumps. This is smart because the space that the logs fill up is less dirt that you have to shovel onto the jumps. next you should shovel a big pile of dirt on top of the logs. While you are piling the dirt onto the logs you should pack it down every once in a while so you don’t have to do it as much compacting in the shaping part of your jump.

The last step of building your dirt jump is to shape the pile of dirt into a jump. The first thing you should do is walk on the front of the jump so it is compacted. Then you should use your shovel and pack the jump in until it is smooth and hard enough that your tires don’t leave big marks on the face of the jump. After you have finished all this work for the takeoff of your jump you should do it again for the landing.

I hope I have taught you the basics of how to build a dirt jump. If you want to learn how to build a dirt jump a little bit better you should watch some videos so you can see what I’m talking about.

It would be really cool if you posted some how-to videos. Or even just a video of you going over your home-built dirt jumps!
