Okay, yesterday I took my 1st tumbling class to help me with future wakeboarding tricks. They had me to back hand springs, back tuck rolls, forward tuck rolls and some other stuff. It felt pretty good, even though I was spotted and helped, but it was a cool feeling to flip. They also gave me some great tips and I feel much more comfortable to try things on my own trampoline. <BR> <BR>Anyone else have gymanstic experience? <BR> <BR>I think I will take 1 month of gymnastics and then go on my own. I just need some basics. My dancing background helped alot!

all those flips were done on the trampoline, not ground yet!!

Talked with tumbling coach and they have me practicing back tucks for future wakeboarding moves. lol <BR> <BR>The instructor, his son, is a wakeboarder so he knows the importance of safety and flipping. <BR> <BR>He also said as I progress we will tie a rope to the pole in gym and practice flipping with handle. SWEET!
