Trampoline

Does anyone use a trampoline at all for wakeboarding practice? I have been thinking about getting one since I dont get on the water as much as I would like. I know they also have training boards just for the trampoline

I used one for freestyle jumping. It helps some people a lot plus girls look cool jumping on them!

We use a 15 foot with a net, and a rope tied to a tree. We made a tramp board out of a 9 dollar wallmart skateboard, 9 dollar walmart sandles screwed to the deck, and an 8 dollar carpet thinger. It works slick!

Make sure you check your homeowners policy - I guess insurance companies have a real problem with trampolines.

I was reading in the paper the other day about how many injuries are caused in them. Mainly kids with broken arms, legs, and necks....
I have a 14' and wish I didn't.....

Perhaps, I am a little to causious....I hope that's all...

I'd have to guess there are better ways to practice.....



Edit: I should note, I also read in the paper how many kids get hurt by papershredders and I have one of those too, and that's inside the house..

my wife is skeptical about the trampoline... are there any other dry land ways to practice wakeboarding tricks?

Up here in the winter, I was thinking about taking gymnastics..... Yes, I said gymnastics. When it comes to getting better at wakeboarding I'll try anything
