Default Trampoline training?

Anyone done trampoline training specifically for snowboarding? I don't mean bouncing with your board on, I mean working on inverts and such. Any comments on how much it helps?

I'm asking because I've signed up for a couple of private lessons on trampoline to get ready for this season.

I have. Helps a lot with breaking the fear barrier and getting familiar being inverted in the air. Nothing is really translatable other than that. But that is literally half the battle any way so...

Fear's definitely part of it. I'm a bit of a wuss. The other thing though is learning the "timing" for coming out of the flip feet-down and head-up.

I didn't know we had those things around here, where is the trampoline thing Donutz?
I have a friend who used to tell me doing a back flip was easier than doing a 360, I always figured he was full of shit.
But they kinda are, once you get over the whole flipping upside down thing.
When you're halfway through your rotation & you're upside down you can see everything for the last half of the rotation.
I know it sounds like bullshit & I always thought it was until I tried to do one.

Next time you make it up to Seymour when there is like 3 feet of fluffy, find a spot off the beatin' path & make a jump where there is a nice steep landing.

Know that even if you land on your head, you're not going to get hurt. You really won't, worst thing that is going to happen is you're gonna get stuffed with full of snow.

Best Ever - backflip jim rippey on MPORA

Timmy, It's Quantum Gymnastics out in Maple Ditch. Quantum Gymnastics Centre . I may have grabbed the last open spot though. I would have liked to book at Aviva, which is much closer to home, but they're booked solid until Feb.

Anyway, let's not go overboard. I'm going to start with a tamedog, which looks like about the safest invert. If that doesn't stop my heart on the spot, I'll continue from there.

Snowolf, you hit the hammer right on the thumb. I've notice a tendency to go off-axis when I try to spin, so I'm hoping I can work on my stability in that area as well.

Slyder made a comment in another thread about a jump happening in a blink, with no memory of the actual event. I think this is what happens when you're doing something that your brain doesn't have any references to process with. The solution is to get used to the motion or event or whatever until your brain has established a way to deal with it. Then you can actually consciously experience what's happening. So the tramp practice should just allow me to get used to being in the air enough to be able to deal with it when I'm on the snow.

Donutz you been studying the SA "Tame Dog Flip" video. If I did and I won't I think that is about all I would try. As I know that is my bodies limit.
You go for it man!!!! That would be super for your spins !!!
