It will be mostly good for learning grabs and overall awareness in the air. It will help you with counting and watching your spin. It won't help you make that spin on a snowboard since there is no replication of the edges of a snowboard. The vast majority of whether or not you can do a trick is how you leave the snow. The tramp does nothing for that. Still tons of fun to use though. The one I made is plywood wrapped in foam and duct tape with real bindings on it. It comes out to about the same weight as a real snowboard set-up.
