Trampoline for training

Does anyone use a trampoline to train?

Do you use the wakeboard on the trampoline?

What size trampoline would you recomend? Want to keep the cost down (in order to keep my wife happy).

I've done it. Definitely helps. Tie the rope to a tree and go nuts. I wake skate, so I used a blank skateboard. Dunno about the wake board. Bigger is definitely better.

Yup, used to do it all the time. I had a spare wakeboard with no fins that I used. Tie the rope up high and go nuts. My back flips used to launch me off the circle so have something soft to land on (or a net). The bigger the trampoline the better. It really helps with handle passes.

Very helpful! Back when I would compete I used to do this daily. Really helps with muscle memory and air awareness so you know where you are and can spot your landing. No need to use a board, probably better/safer without. Just tie a rope to something solid. I just have your average size round trampoline, nothing special. I liked to draw the two "wakes" with chalk to simulate a take off and landing area and get the feel of traveling while doing the spins/inverts.

My son (10 yrs old) uses a "bounce board". It is a foam board that straps to your feet just for this purpose. A little softer that a real wakeboard when it contacts body parts that it shouldn't. Also, a little easier on the trampoline.

My son and his buddies at wakeboard camp trampoline for hours. Great for handle passes. Not sure if they are allowed to use the board. I would think a lot of wear and tear on the tramp.

Wish I had the room for a tramp, when I had the opportunity to use one the owner blocked up the front of the tramp to keep the line and hand with a little tension or load while jumping. Secure the rope to the house or a tree
Tramp use sure helped in orientation
Square or rectangle tramps are better than round tramps

I have a 15x17'. It's a little big but it works. I think a 15 or 16 round one would bounce better.
Do not use a wakeboard. It's too sharp. Check out voda tramp boards. I actually have one for 100$ if you want haha, they are pretty sweet. Learned how to grab all sorts of inverts by using that board

Voda Board. All the camps in Florida use trampoline training. Excellent tool. But be safe.

Well, looks like the trampoline idea is out. My wife veto'd it . She thinks I would end up breaking my neck .


Ironically, my co-workers daughter was rused to the hospital the otherday from a trampoline accident. Not sure how she landed, but she landed in a way that they thought she may have broken her neck and went into a seiger. Yikes.
