Ideally, before you take a trick to the water, you should be able to land it on the trampoline regular and switch, with and without the handle, and with an extra 180 in both directions past your goal trick. For example, if you want to land a tantrum on the water, you should be able to do a backflip on the trampoline, switch and regular; a tantrum to fakie; and a tantrum to blind — all with and without the handle. This will give you the maximum amount of air awareness and rotational control, preparatory to your attempt in a higher-risk environment on the water. If you’re having a hard time with handle control on your trampoline inverts, detach the handle from the rope and try the trick with just the lone handle in your hand. Once that’s comfortable, reattach the handle.
