Advice plz related to trampolines
so last year was my first year on twintips and lets just say i didn't accomplish THAT i'm prty good at sliding rails and can 270 off but not on, as far as jumps all i can do is a basic 1 and 3 with grabs. SOO i decided to try a bit harder this year and i started off by booking a 2 hr tramp sesz which i ma going to in 4 days with my bro, this will hopefully let me try some new stuff without being afraid of falling.
sooo my questions is what should i try and how should i go about doing it? i definatly will be tryign front flips back/lincoln inot the foam pit first as far as like corks and mistys and bios i dunno what i should try or do first when i get there, btw this will be first time on tramp (well when i was a kid i did gymnastics but that was looong time ago) and no i have'nt skied yet this year but i will next week.
thanks everyone, if this trampoline thing actually does help me, than i will continue using it to practice as i see alot of ppl here as well as pros seem to be using trampolines to practice and come up with new tricks, btw has anyone see the pistol flip by joe murrel at saas fe? apparently in sum interview he said its his first year on skis, but he said he trains on trampoline so there you have it...
well........ in my opinion, i would try as many tricks as you can into the pit so you can get a feel of the rotation/spotting your landing and such. Its a really good idea to be practicing on a tramp, as it really helps me get a feel of what i'll be doing on the snow. get your 3's nice and clean looking, then work up to a 5. You will know when your ready to move on from a 5. Try to get some grabs with the 5 if you can, but dont rush things. Just make sure you have fun and remember if you dont try it, you will regret it.
Friendship is like peeing your pants, everyone can see it, but only you get the warm feeling it brings.

this year im hoping to get really good. so how do u book a tramp session. do u just call up ur gymnastics place and rent the tramp or what?

im in mississauga, ontario if that helps but just look in you yellowpages or sumthing type in "trampoline" or trmapolines and u should get a few places, i just called up the gymnastics club my moms friends son is (airborne) in and they have "drop in" sessions like times open to public where it is 10$/hour/person and its max 3 ppl to trampoline so u can go alone or with a friend or two and its supervised by a trampoline instructor which u can ask for help i mite ask him lol prty sure they noe a thing or two about backflips/frontflips
go for double front, into a foam pit thers nothin to loose.
Probably depends on whether you are on a big tramp or just trying things into the pit. I would reccomend working on a big tramp for starters. Sure, it's fun to huck things into the foam pit, but what you really want to work on are some of the basics of spinning and flipping, which are better an a large, stationary tramp. I would try to learn how to spin with grabs. While it may not seems as "crazy" as rodeos and other such tricks, it is something that you will be able to take to the snow sooner. Work on getting smooth, tucked and grabbed, 3's, 5's and 7's. Also, work on getting fronts, backs, and lincolns. All of those are building block tricks that will allow you to progress into more difficult off axis rotations. That's probably more than enough for a couple sessions. Get those solid and then see where you progress from there.
