Get electrical tape around your board's edges. Jump into your neighbors trampoline.

but, in all honesty if you're too scared don't do it. Don;t try it till you feel confident. Hesitation kills.

My buddy does em... I won't even try it.

The risk of breaking your neck is to high for the thrill imo

He claims it's actually super super easy to do on a board, but I'm still not doing it. He's landed every one he's done from the very first one he attempted.... I witnessed the very first one and it was perfect
