Loop the Loop with Damien Walters

Oh, the drama.

Daredevils throughout history have been pushing the boundaries of risk, jumping across canyons and flying over rows of vehicles on their bikes. But have never undertaken this unbelievable stunt by foot alone. …

Whistler BOUNCE Academy

Whistler Bounce Acrobatic Academy has been open for 2yrs, expanding to two adjacent gyms over that time. It’s a Trampoline club geared to ski and Action Sports.

Click PLAY or watch Deaner – Ski & Bounce on Vimeo. It’s got some pretty cool footage of Bounce. As well as big air on the slopes.

Normally I’d urge parents to keep their kids OUT of Trampoline gyms like this. But BOUNCE is better than most. More thoughtfully set-up. Better padded.

Dave Ross built them a custom Rebound Super Tramp. That’s one insane piece of equipment.

It’s worth checking out if you get up to Whistler B.C., site of the 2010 Winter Olympics.

People are awesome 2013

I’m a sucker for these videos. It’s a guilty pleasure.

There are a number of acrobatic stunts I’ve never seen before in this edit.

The highlight for me is the very last stunt. So simple. So terrifying.

crazy Russian parkour

Vault at 2min – Hecht back tuck.

When Hardy Fink added the Hecht back tuck into the FIG Men’s Code of Points, we thought it was impossible. Until Rhett Stinson at Taiso did one — easily — into the pit.

tracking device for action sports

surfers, skateboarders (or skiers/snowboarders) won’t be feeling so left out of the tracking trend if this Kickstarter campaign hits its funding goal. Trace is a monitoring device for action sports practitioners to catch data on every wave, turn, flip, landing and so on — and a corresponding app so they track their performance and see how they rank against others. …

Those guys raised more than the $150,000 start-up money they needed. Looks like it’s going to be made commercially available by February 2014.

Jess from GymCastic linked to this. And asks whether we should be testing it with Parkour, Trampoline, Gymnastics, etc.

Leave a comment if you’ve used Trace or anything similar.

girl’s Parkour

At our annual summer Gymnastics Camp we’ve added a mixed Gymnastics / Parkour set-up outdoors.

Many of the girls did not know what the word Parkour meant.

It’s getting increasingly popular with girls. And it’s good psychological cross training for WAG.
