SOLD OUT! Summer Maximise Airbag Training Trip : July 7-13

Trip Overview:

Have you ever wanted to fly through the air and launch into that trick you've always wanted to try without the injury risk associated with failure?  Now you have the opportunity to go after many of the tricks on your list you've always wanted with a cushion of air to catch you if it doesn't work out quite as well as planned.  Our first airbag trip least year led to an opening of the inverted trick floodgates for many of our older team riders this year.  This is your chance to get in on the action yourself as we are returning with limited numbers again this year.  Airbags are an extremely valuable tool when used correctly to advance your jumping abilities and we are looking forward to seeing what goes down this year on the trip.
