Does anyone have "The Book" yet? I have Waketrix and love that video, but If The Book is really that good and has the potential to greatly improve my riding I might shell out the heavy $$$ for it. So "the Book"...Worth 90$???

Yep...have seen the book.

5 DVD's and something like 8 hours of instruction. They do alot of trampoline instruction, you can choose from any of the coaches, good camera angles. Worth the money in my opinion. For most people though, Waketrix has got everything you might want. The Book just takes it to another level.

Me and my ridung crew bought the book together. Gives alot of helpful info and explains each trick in good detail, right from the bottom up. Well worth the money.

how do you choose different coaches. I know at the first of each new trick a menu comes up, but I haven't figured out what I press to get it to switch coaches???

You have use the number keys on the remote to access the other voices, and that only seems to be available on the more advanced tricks.

I think it is well worth the money...
It has several things that I found valuable.
The footage they use, front and side as well as a great visual on the type of cut you need, really lets you see every part of a trick.
If you follow the "tree of progression" that they lay out for each trick, you can become a more solid overall rider, and master each trick quickly.
The "two minute drill" and the "four minute drill" will be great for the newbie riders I have riding with me. It gives them a clear goal that is fun to work on and acheive, and they will build strength and skill while working towards it.
