I disagree. I hate flipping on a trampoline because I always feel there isn't a large enough landing if I drift a little. I learned backflips off the hips of landings. They're so easy. Just do them on a snowy or warm day when the snow's soft. Once you do 10 of them you'll be landing them no prob. I still havent taken them to jumps but off the side hits they're pretty fun.
