Trampoline – Canada International Film Festival



We are incredibly proud to be the only Irish film screening at the Canada International Film Festival today in Vancouver.

Not only that but we also won the ‘Best Coming of Age Feature’ award at the festival too. 
It’s an amazing accomplishment for our little movie and we are thrilled with the way things have been going since we premiered at Indie Cork last October.

Since then we have had tremendous success on the festival circuit taking home awards such as ‘Best Film’ and ‘Best Actress’ in New York and LA. A limited independent cinema release in Tipperary as well as special screenings at Little Cinema in Galway and Cineworld in Dublin.

We are very lucky that audiences around the world have connected with our movie and seem to really be enjoying it. Not bad going for a movie made for a budget of less than €1000.

We screen today at 4pm…

How To Do A Back Drop On A Trampoline

A back drop is the first move you will learn which has any sort of backward rotation. In this step by step guide Nik Walder, coach at Ace of Clubs Trampolining, teaches you how to perform the move safely.



To execute the move: push your hands forwards and upwards, push your hips forwards, and push your feet out in front of you; this will cause you to drop on your back with your legs up.
As you bounce off your back you push your hips and feet forwards to land back on your feet.
Be careful not to pull your head and shoulders back as this can cause you to over-rotate and land dangerously on your neck.
You should start by doing the move from standing using a throw in mat to get comfortable:

Top 3 Trampoline Games You Can Play This Summer



This summer you could jump your way out of boredom! Summertime is perfect time to set up your trampoline and starting jumping around. No matter how old you are, playing on a trampoline can be really enjoyable, and it can become even more adventurous when you decide to play a game on it. You can easily make up your own game while jumping up and down on a trampoline. Simply jumping up and down can become dull and repetitive, and you might end up in search of new games to play. So if you have a trampoline and you are wondering what game you could play on it this summer, you could try one of the following best trampoline games of 2013.

1. Add-On

If you want to play this trampoline game you will need someone to accompany you, and the more the merrier. You can show the rest of your friends how to play this game by going first. While your friends watch, start by jumping and performing any simple trick that you know, such as a split jump or a twist. One by one the rest of the players will take turns to mimic your trick, and each player will also get a chance to perform his own trick that the others will have to mimic, and so on. The fun part about this game is that one you might end up forgetting parts of the trick routine, and perform it in the wrong order. Whoever gets the routine wrong will have to leave the game, and the last one who performs all the trick routine correctly will win the game.

2. Crossfire

You might not be a fan of dodge ball, but you will enjoy playing this trampoline game, which is quite similar. You will need a softball to play this game. To play crossfire you will need a softball. The game will begin with two players jumping on the trampoline and the rest surrounding it on the ground. One by one you will take turns to throw a soft ball at the two players on the trampoline, and whoever hits one of them will switch positions with them. Players will get points for hitting the two players on the trampoline with the softball, while if you hit them on the head you will lose points. You can also use more than one softball make the game more intense.


3. Hot Potato

We saved the best trampoline game you can play this summer for the last. This game is perfect for the summer time and is sure to cool you and your friends off by the time you are done playing. To play this game you will need several water balloons, depending on how long you want to play. In this game, all the players will be on the trampoline and will have to throw a water balloon at each other, while jumping, until it bursts and splashes one of you with water. The jumping will make it tricky to catch and not break the balloon, and that is why this game can get quite exciting.

If you have a trampoline, no need to get bored this summer. Just step out in the sun, jump and sweat your way out of boredom as your try one of the above three best trampoline games of 2013.

This crick in my neck and these
loud voices drown me
within the crowd
as I bow down for the

be naked
This is the extent of my 
it is my preference to barter
as opposed to employment

a life respectful

Why You Shouldn’t Have Sex on a Trampoline

According to a Naples (FL) news article, a Florida dominatrix was recently found to be offering a variety of sex services including a torture chamber, sex in a shed and sex on a trampoline. While sex on a trampoline may seem springy and fun – especially as summer approaches – there’s a reason it should give you pause.

If done slowly without fast, thrusting, bouncy movements, it might be totally safe. Even fun.

But if things get too bouncy and a man’s penis slips out of his partner, he could hit his penis against her thigh or pelvis or the trampoline. In doing so, he may end up accidentally breaking his penis. Yes, that’s right: you can break your penis. And because I adore penises as much as I do (and I truly do), I’m trying to help by giving you fair warning about trampoline sex.

A tell-tale sign of a broken penis is often a popping sound with accompanying pain and/or discomfort – and it requires immediate attention from a healthcare provider. Penis breaks often happen in woman-on-top or in any position in which heavy in-and-out thrusting is going on, so be careful out there.

Read more about broken penis problems in a previous blog post I wrote on the topic. And this summer, enjoy the trampoline all you want. But when your pants come down, so should you.

Trampoline Bridges Are All The Rage In France Right Now


EliteDaily: Paris has plans to add some serious fun to its gorgeous, historic city, as an inflatable trampoline bridge will have people bouncing across the Seine. The inflatable trampoline bridge has been proposed as a part of the Archtriumph competition in the French capital of Paris. Located near the Pont de Bir-Hakeim bridge, the structure would be constructed of floating PVC buoys, each 30 meters in diameter. “Each module under tension – filled with 3700 cubic meters of air – develops in space with an arch-like form,” says architects AZC, who add that the design is “dedicated to the joyful release from gravity as one bounces above the river.” They describe the bridge as something “fun and frivolous”  to contrast what they consider “stressful Paris.” “It appears to us that Paris has the bridges and passages necessary for the flow of vehicular and pedestrian traffic across its waterways,” the firm writes on…

How to recycle your Garden Trampoline

Posted on 19/01/2012 by Atlantic Trampolines

If your trampoline was damaged beyond economic repair in the recent storms you might have some imaginative ways to recycle the trampoline and the parts that are undamaged.  This photo shows an innovative idea which makes use of the trampoline frame ring, the trampoline bounce mat and trampoline springs.  The trampoline frame has been covered in soft padding and the whole trampoline mat is covered with a sheet.   The frame is suspended from the ceiling by strong rope to make a large suspended swinging bed or relaxation area.



In our experience some extra strenghtening may be required to the trampoline frame to keep it perfectly flat when suspended in this way.   We would suggest if you want to try this yourself do some tests before you start to cover the frame in padding.  Rather than tie the suspension ropes to the frame try passing them underneath the trampoline mat and up the opposite side.   This has the added benefit that it will provide more support to the centre of the trampoline mat and prevent it sagging in the middle.  Also, you will need to ensure the suspension ropes are strong enough to carry the greatest potential load and of course take great care to make sure the ceiling beams are capable of supporting the weight.


If you have any other examples of innovative uses for redundant trampolines then please let us know so we can share the ideas.


Here is another example of the same idea, this one installed outside.

It’s beautiful afternoon. The energy is flowing.  The timing is right.  And there it is.

Waiting for me.  Calling me.   Enticing me.  Drawing me in.

I’m alone.  I’m vulnerable.  I’m nervous.  I’m feeling playful.

Is anyone else around? Is anyone looking?  Is it safe?

I think so, but it’s risky.

For most women around the globe, this is an illegal act.  Punishable by law!  Even in US cities, that have a law firmly in effect that allows this very form of expression, the police can still arrest you under the pretense of “disorderly conduct”.

But, I am 47 years young and had never even experienced this before.

So, I go for it!

I take it off.

It is such a “freeing” feeling – especially for a woman.

I go a little higher each time.

I feel the air.  The breeze. Brush against me.  Blow in my ears.

Pure exhilaration flows through my body and soul.

 I feel amazing.  I feel empowered.  I feel ALIVE.  I FEEL FREE.

All the while I am grinning from ear to ear and laughing uncontrollably… Like a child… I am a child… at least for a few precious moments in time.  Wishing time could stand still.  Frozen.  Stop.
