    Portland landlords tend to be chill about such things though.

    You shouldn't need a permit, as you can claim it as a temporary structure, e.g. a playhouse.

    Your landlord is also protected by the Oregon extreme sports law of 1999 which basically says that people doing extreme sports on private property assume all liability.
    Cool.
    This board is DEAD.

      That law seems to have been abolished at least 5 years ago. http://www.justanswer.com/law/139ox-...rts-event.html

          This is not true. Although it may not cover some one holding you liable for injuries sustained on the ramp, liability coverage can be extended outside the home.

            I just meant structures. If ricky had patio furniture outside the house, the renters insurance would cover it if someone stole it. I really don't think renters insurance would cover a miniramp without insanely high premiums.

                put up a sing saying that "this it NOT to be used".

                you warned everyone.....



                but srsly if its portable then i dont think they can do anything. you are just storing it there!
                dont skate it in the middle of the night and buy your neighbors some beer...

                  It would make sense that OR repealed that extreme sports law, I mean, how can tort attornies sue insurance companies with that policy in place? I understand why they would lobby to change that.

                  Waiver? Dumb, basically admitting in writing that you are providing people a way to hurt themselves, unless it is required by your insurance to provide one. Just gonna have to stomach the risk and curb stomp anyone that tries to bring claim after skating the ramp.

                  Ricky, WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH THE RAMP?

                    Called the landlord, he said it's fine and is more concerned with the fact that I tore up his "garden" and put a fire pit in. It wasn't even a garden, it was pieces of rotted wood barely holding together filled with dirt and weeds but apparently he spent alot of time on it so I assured him it will replace it before I moved out.

                        Your Landlord sounds like a complete dickhole. Post his phone number, email and mail ing address for some well deserved be-justice.

                          That's the mini ramp in the dude's yard. Before we took it down.



                          After 2 days of busting our asses, we finally finished getting the whole thing taken down.

                          It's 4ft high with the little 5ft high extension on the one side and 16ft wide. The flat is a little long so we're going to take a portion of it out when we put it back together.

                                Yeah, flat looks horribly long. I'd also try to make the new one a little wider.
