BUT DAMN that just looks fun as hell
There are few things in life without consequences or just minimal consequences...this looks to be one of those learning opportunities for your sons. Huck away, Huck away all.

Ah, those good old zero consequence airbags. A few years ago when copper first installed theirs, a lifty decided he would have a huck, and jacked the shit out of his back. I never did find out if he made it back to work that season.

My personal worst injury on a snowboard happened in Woodward at coppers foam-pit - I almost broke my neck, my buddy also blew out his knee landing in that foam-pit pretty soon afterwards.

At the end of the day do whatever you want, its snowboarding, its awesome, and its dangerous. Just don't think that anything is zero consequence. Less consequence maybe, but you're going to want to take it to snow at some point anyway - so why not build that progression on the snow. I learned back 3's on sidehits on a catroad going almost at a standstill.

it looks like everyone is saying the same thing, huck whatever you feel like and just make sure not to land on your neck. you can learn front 3s and 5s at your local hill, when are you going to get the chance to just huck yourself around like you could with that thing? DOO IIITTTT

No expirience with airbags but alot with trampolines and foam pits. Be aware that it is still very possible to hurt yourself. One of my bad expiriences was trying to spin as much as I could into a foam pit on my skates. I jumped off to the side trying to huck it. Every time I came around I just saw to the side getting closer and closer. I landed in the foam but only a few inches from the side. Going off the side of the bag is the biggest concern. Being flexable is the biggest advantage you can have for when you land on your head. I've done that a few times on a trampoline. Being flexible enough to get my fott behind my head saved me there.

I'm also going to chime in on this and say it is definitely not Zero consequences... they have one installed at Windham here in NY and it is definitely fun to launch yourself and try grabs and spins you would never consider trying otherwise. That said I've seen some pretty gnarly accidents on that thing. One of the first times I was up there after it was installed, I watched someone come in too hot and launch themselves off the back of the bag. Another time there was still a person trying to get off the bag and they still let someone take off and the person trying to get off got shot off the edge of the thing.

Still even with that it's a sick experience and definitely worth the extra cost. Just don't be stupid and you'll be fine.

You don't want the forward momentum to hurt you when you land. It may hurt if you try to stomp the landing. If you face plant, you may get bruises from your goggle. It is possible to undershoot (when the snow is sticky in the spring) and overshoot so you need to be careful with your speed.
