I was just browsing the internet looking for a new trampoline and came across this board for $100.00. Here is the link.

Holy cow!! I don't believe that's out there! It looks like a garden knee pad. Still kinda steep price, but I probably would have bought it if I saw it before I made my own with old bindings.

3/4" ply, used my wakeskate as a template, sanded the edges, secured it with inserts and wing bolts from Lowe's.

About 10 years ago, I made a tramp board out of plexiglass. It was about the same size as a skateboard and we screwed tennis shoes onto it. It actually worked pretty well. We were even stupid enough to try to make a rail slide off the trampoline, over the concrete, and into the pool. Not such a smart idea...but it was doable!

Skateboard deck ($20-40), old shoes (FREE), roll of duct tape ($3). Hours of endless fun (PRICELESS).

I put mine together and it works like a champ. It is lighter but I can easily duct tape some weight between the shoes and give it a wakeboard feel.

I got some old school sandal bindings off eBay for $7 and cut a deck out of some plywood. Sanded the edges and done. Pretty fun, but can't get the bounce as high as when it's just my feet hitting the mat and no board. Great for spins and grabs though.

yeah the Guru looks sweet, but for $300 I'll pass.

Has anyone actually used this product, I think it's called the Bounce Board Extreme? I realize making your own is probably a much cheaper alternative, just want to know if anyone has actually used this and how it compared to the guru and homemade versions.

Thanks for mentioning my site...the Bounceboard has been real popular but I didn't know for all the reasons why until I was at the recent Orlando, FL "Surf Expo". Our Bounceboard and Guru Trampboards are very strong, durable and most importantly flexible which is needed when used on a trampoline...Using stiff plywood on a trampoline must be hard on the legs and ankles. The Guru trampboards are similar in weight as real wakeboards.

Blabel has. Here is a photo gallery of him using the Bounce Board in my backyard. We took a look at the Bounce Board in our Winter Boardom article.

Does anyone know the specs or relative specs on the Guru board. Length, width, weight etc? I know they won't say what type of foam it is, but do you think it needs to be closed cell or can it be open cell foam. I saw the Guru at Nationals and probably should of looked at it closer.
And no I am not going to become a Guru competitor but at work I can get all types of foam and I wouldn't mind making one similar if I can find out the specs?

Ya, using ply for a tramp board may be hard on the legs and ankles....but so is Wakeboarding! Paying over $100 for a piece of foam is hard on the wallet.

wats cool about the Foam one its that it bends so you can get more air. i want to make a "plywood one" but it sems like it takes up more surfeace area and will be harder to bounce.. does that make sence?
