Bounceboard(R) at Woodward
I like your article about snowboarding cross training and am and glad you guys like the Bounceboard(R). Im going to share this story's link the Bounceboard fan page. I am submitting the below article if you are interested.
Bounceboards LLC is the creator of the Bounceboard(R) which is a soft
flexible board used to practice aerial snowboarding and wakeboarding
maneuvers on a trampoline. Until now, snowboard, wakeboard, and
skateboard enthusiast would take the wheels off their skateboards or
simply use their snowboards or wakeboards to practice their tricks on
a trampoline. Because this practice is potentially dangerous to the
user as well as hazardous to a trampoline and will void the warranty
of the trampoline, the lightweight high density foam construction of
the Bounceboard® is a safe and fun alternative.
The board is shaped like a small snowboard about 3 ½ feet long and is
designed to strap to the users bare feet. The board is comprised of
only soft flexible materials but is strong enough to hold its shape
while jumping on it. While we recommend to always wear a helmet and
use a spotter when using the Bouncboard® its is obvious the board will
not damage the user or the trampoline.
Major extreme sport training camps such as Woodward and the University
of Oregon's aerial awareness training class are using the Bounceboard®
as a training tool in their facilities and are having great results
and receiving positive feedback. The Bounceboard® was also featured in
the MTV show “Made” to help a young snowboarder in Wisconsin learn to
snowboard. Bounceboards® can be purchased at www.bounceboards.com.
