If you mess up start back at the 180. It worked really well for me.
I don't know if I'll go as far as the 5's. On the snow I will be happy with 3's and that is just fine for this ole dad

This is a great tip I will let ya know when I hit the tramp park. My kids go often and I need to drive them so I will be buying some time. Work on the tramp and they also have a nice indoor rock wall. I'll hit them both.

Thanks Cav

I'm going to start keeping an eye out on CL for a trampoline. I had one growing up and jumped on that thing for hours. Not only will it help you with spins and grabs and what not, but it's just great exercise period.

Build your own suspension system with straps

I just put my own poles in the ground on either side of the trampoline.

You can get a climbing harness for pretty cheap on Craigslist.

This never even occurred to me. I more than likely have free access to one of the best amateur gymnastics facilities around, and it's near the freeway in Langley...

The trampoline sounds like a great idea.. does anyone know how easy they are to break down and if they will fit in an average size sedan (2000 jetta with 12' tramp) I'm lookin at a great deal on Craigslist but don't know if I can actually fit it in the car

The circle ones that most people have can be broken down super easily. You just pull out the poles like a tent. They ship in boxes about 5ft long X 1ft deep X 6in tall. If your back seats fold down, it'll definitely fit.

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

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.
