I am not a pro boarder. In fact I am a very late fan of the sport. This is more a diary than anything else, although comments and suggestions are appreciated. I'm going to try to keep track of how I do (and what I do) from season to season; what works and what fails; and how I improve over time.

Tramp day 1

Posted 11-24-2012 at 09:48 PM by Donutz

Had my first trampoline training session today. I guess I had some kind of fantasy that I'd be doing inverts first day. Yeah, reality sux. Today I learned to bounce up and down without leaving the trampoline entirely. I learned to land without locking my knees (bad. Very bad.) I also learned a few useful things, like how to do a 360 without throwing my shoulder downwards and going off-axis. And I learned how to "throw" a 360 with far less effort than I've been putting into it -- just a matter of practice, as it turns out. Who knew?

Anyway, I think it's well worth the effort. Between desensitization to height, improving my balance and ability to recover, and just getting a general feel for the timing, I think I'm going to get good value out of this. And it was fun.

I think I took the instructor by surprise. He didn't really seem to expect me to really know snowboarding. And he seemed to be really working to come up with snowboarding-related exercises. He says he'll study up for next week. I personally don't really mind. I'm capable of taking the tramp training and applying it myself.
