A quarterpipe is just one half of a mini ramp and is also called a quarter. At the upper end, you’ll find a round, metal edge, the so-called “coping”.
A famous quarter pipe is at the Big O’Montreal. The Olympic Games were held there in 1979 and creative architecture was built around the entire stadium. They also created the legendary Big O’Quarter Pipe. As you know, skaters are creative and thus, they’ve been using it as a skate spot ever since.
