not to be that guy but they can be dangerous.. ive heard more than one person say they know someone who was paralyzed from falling off a trampoline. although, im sure woodward is more safety oriented then someone with a tramp in their backyard

JonSnow You better buy a trampoline quick. They are super dangerous and should probably be outlawed.

Tramp

Actually the trampoline does help. but not that much when it comes to rotations. you can learn how to do flips, cartwheels, laid back, front flips, backflips, and rodeo. the problem when it comes to rotations is that the movement of the upperbody should be focused on a lot and you have to keep your legs the same way your board and bindings are set up. best place to learn rotations is on flat land. Use the same techniques that you would do on the big booters. but do know the more you can achieve on land, the more you'll be able to pull off dope tricks on kickers and drops!
Cheers everybody

I can easily spin 900's on a tramp but spinning a 360 consistently on the snow still escapes me.
If your having problems with spinning 9's, Do what I do and use ankle weights equal to or greater than the weight of your board+bindings+boots. Think about it like the old Superman movies where the gravity on his home planet was so strong that he could fly on earth. Movie reference #1

Might as well say after getting my ass handed to me for even mentioning the "R" word, Never, EVER, use it on this form.

john doe My best friend that lives 5 minutes from me has a 14x14ft tramp in his backyard. I've had a ton of time on it including with a practice board made of plywood, pipe insulation, and old bindings. It will help you a lot with your in air control of spins and inverts but setting an edge and starting the spin on the snow is not something that can be practiced on a tramp. I can easily spin 900's on a tramp but spinning a 360 consistently on the snow still escapes me. It drives me insane since I can 540 on flat ground on my rollerblades.

An 8x14ft tramp is a bad idea since you don't know which direction you may go when you start trying off axis stuff. I have flown into the net of my friend's 14x14 after trying a backflip 360.

Crammed one into the back seat and trunk of an old Volvo 240 without a problem. Twice.
