Water Ramp and Airbag Schedule 2023

Fortune Freestyle runs water ramp and airbag camps where athletes can safely practice jumps on both trampoline and on skis jumping into a water (lake or pool) or onto an airbag.

 

This year Fortune Freestyle will be running camps at two facilities over the summer and into the fall (see below).  Unfortunately, the planned airbag facility at Horseshoe Valley will not be ready this summer.

 

The Lac Beauport water ramp is very user-friendly and caters to athletes of all skill levels and disciplines (moguls and slope). This is a great venue for newer athletes trying their first ramp camp, as well as more experienced athletes working on flips and continuing to progress their skills. The Horseshoe and Maximise airbag facilities have somewhat larger jumps, with a landing on a sloped airbag. These facilities tend to be best-suited for athletes who are comfortable with medium to large jumps or have previously jumped on an airbag (eg. the airbag at Camp Fortune) or water ramp.

Overall, all of these camps run by Fortune Freestyle are welcoming to athletes of all abilities and, of course, a lot of fun!

For additional information about water ramp and airbag camps, please contact Coach Colin at fortunefreestyle@gmail.com

Fortune Freestyle Water Ramp and Airbag camps are perfect for any athlete looking for some summer freestyle fun!

 

Water ramp and airbag are great environments for athletes to work on all jumps – spins, uprights, etc. – not just flips 

 

For athletes who want to learn higher level jumps (e.g. flips, off-axis tricks – e.g. corks, flat spins, loops)  – water ramp or airbag is essential – as these tricks must first be learned, practiced and qualified on water ramp or airbag before the trick can be performed on snow. Athletes wishing to work on tricks which require qualification should plan on attending multiple camps over the course of the summer. If you have questions about the qualification process – please reach out to your coach or  Coach Colin

 

In terms of basic skill level, athletes who are looking to try airbag or water ramp for the first time should:

  • be comfortable with medium-sized jumps. 

  • have a consistent take-off (pop) and be able to execute straight airs with solid landings on smaller jumps.

  • have the physical and mental stamina needed to train for a relatively long day. The training sessions are physically demanding; athletes are required to walk up the hill with their equipment, jump multiple times per session and engage in trampoline training in between jump sessions
