Joe, my overall answer to whether you should get a board specifically for TS is "maybe."

Jack, is any of that drawing to scale? (Ramp heights, widths, shapes & spacing, etc.) As is, seems the "across the fall line" ramps are so narrow and mildly banked that they would kill the riders' speed--not the effect you're going for, I'd bet.
