To stay safe on a trampoline you’ve got to know how to fall properly or bailout in a sticky situation. The Ski Addiction Tramp Skis obviously have some extra tip and tail compared to your feet so the bounce is different. If you are not super comfortable on a trampoline it’s a good idea to practice your bailout techniques without the Tramp Ski first. Most trampoline facilities have what we call a two-foot rule. This means at all times you should have both feet on the same surface whether it’s the side mat or the trampoline. It’s easy to lose balance when a last-minute decision is made this is a good time to use the positions you learned in the getting comfortable tutorial. The safest landing position to use is the backdrop because it has the greatest margin of error. Hands and knees is not a suitable bailout, it puts your hands directly on the trampoline which can create an involuntary or awkward rebound. Often when you bailout you will be off-balance falling forward or backwards and you will need to make a twist happen to get to your back. Placing a throw mat on the trampoline and practicing back drops, your 180 back drops and anything in-between is the best way to make bailing to your back a subconscious effort. Once that feels comfortable it’s time to take away the mat so you can feel the true rebound. Blend the two foot rule with your bailout technique by falling from the side of the mat to the tramp and back up again. If you can do this continuously with these you’re ready to practice bailing out with the Tramp Skis on. Remember backdrops are the best and safest bail is to use with the Tramp Skis. Only because it keeps the skis away from the trampoline. This tutorial was filmed at Whistler Bounce. I’m Dean Bercovitch from Ski Addiction. Helping You Ski Better.
