Builds New Backyard Dirt Jump Line With His Kids

By Eric Porter

We build and ride an entirely new medium-size dirt jump line with my kids in our ridiculous backyard. This is the full build from beginning to end. We started with the new Roll-In that we built in the last video –

Then we moved a ton of dirt, built framed-up wooden landings with lumber I made using my Alaska Mill on a Stihl 460, and then we built wooden lips for the takeoff’s. Of course, we then rode the finished jumps on our BMX bikes and MTB Dirt Jumpers.

Here’s the Diamondback bike I’m riding in the video, and a quick overview of the jumps

Huge thanks to my amazing neighbor Steve Olpin for help filming our riding session. Check out his YouTube Channel and Instagram here –…  and
