Trampoline Joy

Peter Hunter

During the annual family trips to the Deep South of USA, my siblings and I would always visit the backyard trampoline of my grandparents house at least twice a day. We just jumped around and had incredible fun. Most years, I ended up doing something new and scary that I couldn't last year. It was an epic year when I did my first back flip! This is a video shot in 2013, unfortunately the last year of trampolining in my grandparents backyard.

When I became a student at Gerlev Idrætshøjskole in 2010/11, I suddenly had access to a "real" trampoline, 2x4 meters with a soft landing pit. Here I spent lots of accumulated time, since I used a lot of my breaks and afternoons jumping on that trampoline. I'd never received formal training, so I had no real technique, but lots of natural feeling for it. So in addition to slowly picking up knowledge on spinning, I kept playing around, doing all the types of transitions I could between landing on my back, my ass, my stomach and of course my feet. I eventually started doing some double-flips, forward and backward, but only into the pit. My favorite move was the forward flip jumping from and landing on my back. It probably has a name, but I don't know it, and personally I don't care, since the all-important thing with trampolines is playing on them, enjoying the feeling of the jumping and all the dynamics of the easiest-to-get-air-time anywhere.
