|Q. Max, I hear you are running a summer snowboard camp where campers will
practice on ramps and trampolines, in Quebec, in July. No snow, right? How
will that help snowboarders learn tricks?
A. Well we've got 3 Big Trampoline, 7x14 feet, where athletes can upgrade
their skills jumping around, challenging themselves. And On the Ramps, you
can try anything you want. If you crash hard, No Prob, Its only Water. We
got a really good Bubble System, so you can land on your head in the water,
and it's No Problem. (The bubbles aerate the water and make for a soft
landing. They use this bubble system for training at the Salt Lake City
Olympic Center.) This is actually THE BEST way to try NEW Tricks, or Get the
trick you already know perfect.
