Second tramp lesson - Snowboarding Forum - Snowboard Enthusiast Forums
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.

Second tramp lesson

Posted 12-01-2012 at 07:32 PM by Donutz

I went to my second trampoline training session today, and we finally did some inverts. OK, don't get excited, it was just front flips into the foam pit. But wow, I'm kind of amazed at how hard it was to do the first couple. But I can see how the progression goes. You start out just kind of falling into a flip, then gradually start jumping more and more into a larger flip. I expect we'll probably be doing backflips next session.

We also worked on 360's without the trampoline, on an inclined pad. That's kind of the opposite of a trampoline, because not only is there no bounce, but the pad absorbs some of the energy of the jump and makes it harder.

I got frontside 540s going on the trampoline. Took a bit of work. I had trouble getting past 360, so the instructor got me to jump 450s a few times, then graduate another quarter turn. Worked out quite well. Try doing THAT on a real jump.

So I can sure tell where my issues are, and I'm happy to be working them out in the gym instead of on the slopes getting creamed on the jumps.
