JumpSport® Bounceboard® Instructions and Safety Guidelines
1. Read and Follow All the Safety Instructions.
2. Remove shoes.
3. Put on safety gear. A life preserver should
be worn for water-trampoline use. Mouth guard,
helmet, wrist guards, kneepads and elbow pads
should be worn for use with land trampolines.
4. Climb on jumping device.
5. Sit in middle of trampoline and fasten foot
6. Lean forward on knees and stand up.
7. Gently start bouncing up and down to get the
feel of it.
8. Focus your eyes on the perimeter of the trampoline.
This will help you control your bounce.
9. Practice a Stop-Bounce. Flex knees as you come
into contact with the jumping surface to stop
10. Start practicing tricks when you feel comfortable.
Please, no somersaults, flips or back flips. You
run the risk of head and neck injuries, which
can be very serious, causing paralysis and even
11. Never jump off the land trampoline to dismount.
Remove the JumpSport Bounceboard® by kneeling
down or sitting on the bed of the trampoline.
Release the foot straps and climb off the trampoline.
Never jump from a trampoline into a pool and never
jump off a roof to land on your trampoline. Water
makes the surface of a land trampoline too slippery.
Save those water tricks for the water trampolines.
12. Store the JumpSport Bounceboard® out
of reach of animals or young children.
13. If you are using a water trampoline, you may
enjoy dismounting with the JumpSport Bounceboard
still attached to your feet. Be prepared
for belly flops and please watch out for swimmers
and obstacles. Please wear a life preserver and
never dive unless you are certain the water is
deep enough. Swimming will be difficult and you
may have to doggie paddle before the JumpSport
Bounceboard® will slip off your feet, much
like a wave board will slip off your feet. Water
dismounts are only recommended if you are a strong
swimmer. Practice swimming with the Bounceboard in shallow water with a spotter nearby
to make sure you can swim with the Bounceboard on your feet and safely remove the Bounceboard
in the water. The Bounceboard®
will float because it is made of closed cell polyethylene
foam but it is not a life preserver. When you
use the Bounceboard® with water applications
it will be very slippery.
14. Have Fun. This is an extreme sport and requires
quite a bit of athletic ability. Users of Bounceboard
use it at their own risk much like snowboarding,
skateboarding, wakeboarding and kite boarding.

Bounceboard® and other great JumpSport

Warning: Following these guidelines adapted after
the ASTM Standards for Trampoline use will not
prevent all injuries.
Like other physical activities,
use of the JumpSport Bounceboard® involves
the risk of injury. The standards cannot list
every known hazard associated with the use of
Bounceboard®. However these guidelines
promote safe enjoyable use of this accessory.
User agrees to use BounceBoard at their own risk.
The JumpSport Bounceboard® is intended
for advanced users of trampolines or similar jumping
devices such as a floating or backyard land trampoline
with a minimum dimension of 12ft diameter. It
is not intended for mini-trampolines.
your standard trampoline or similar jumping device
is properly assembled in a level area with at
least 10 unobstructed feet (3 meters) on all sides
and a minimum of 20 unobstructed feet (6 meters)
above the bouncing surface.
The area directly
below the jumping surface must be kept clear at
all times. For example place well away from trees,
power lines, pets, fences, boats, docks, swimmers,
Manufacturer shall not be held liable for any
injury, loss or damage direct or consequential
arising out of the use or inability to use this
product for its intended use and the user assumes
all risk and liability whatsoever in connection
1. The JumpSport Bounceboard® should be
used in bare or stocking feet. Assure that the
jumping device is in good repair and securely
positioned. Assure that jumping surface is clean
and clear of debris and/or toys. Sweep fallen
leaves, tree limbs, branches or twigs away. Remove
toys from jumping surface.
2. Perform the 'Stop-Bounce' after every trick
or sequence of tricks, or whenever you deviate
from the center of the jumping surface. The Stop-Bounce
is performed by flexing knees as feet come in
contact with the surface.
3. Never jump off of a land trampoline to dismount,
always climb on and off. Remove the Bounceboard
before climbing off the trampoline. When
jumping off a floating trampoline the Bounceboard
may remain on your feet and you may use
it as a springboard. Assure that your landing
is free of swimmers. It is not a flotation device
and will make swimming difficult. Your feet will
slide out much like they would from a wave board.
Please wear a life preserver at all times. Again
this is an extreme sport and is only recommended
for advanced swimmers. So this means no jumping
of the roof of your house and on to your trampoline
with the Bounceboard® and no jumping from
your trampoline into a pool with the Bounceboard. You are to climb on and off trampolines
and then put the Bounceboard® on.
4. Avoid jumping too high. Stay under control.
Be sure to consistently land in the center of
the trampoline or other jumping device. If you
get off center, Stop bounce and re-center. While
keeping head erect, focus eyes on the trampoline
toward the perimeter.
5. Allow only one person on the trampoline at
a time. Use by more than one person at the same
time increases risk of injury. A mature knowledgeable
person should supervise children when using the
Bounceboard® on trampolines or other jumping
devices. Follow manufacturer guidelines when using
on floating or land trampolines.
6. Do not leave children unsupervised on the trampoline
or other jumping device. The Bounceboard®
is not recommended for children under the age
of 10. Trampolines are not recommended for children
under age 6.
7. Avoid jumping for long periods of time with
the Bounceboard® and do not jump when you
are tired. You will notice you tire more quickly
on the Bounceboard®. Take turns. Don't
8. Do not use your Bounceboard® for your
backyard trampoline, floating trampoline or similar
jumping device when under the influence of alcohol
or drugs. Vow to never use illegal drugs, tobacco
9. Ensure that spotters are always stationed around
the land trampoline. A JumpSport Safety Enclosure
is strongly recommended. Do not use a floating
trampoline without a spotter on land. The surface
will be slippery when wet. Be prepared and start
10. Master the specified pre-requisites of trampoline
jumping before attempting a new skill such as
using a Bounceboard®.
11. Do not attempt somersaults, back flips (back
somersaults), multiple somersaults or twisting
somersaults on your backyard trampoline or other
jumping device. There are plenty of fun tricks
to try that don't put you at risk for spinal cord
injury. Landing on your head or neck can cause
serious injury and even death.
12. Do not attempt to use the Bounceboard®
in windy or gusty conditions. Do not use the Bounceboard
on a wet surface if it is a land trampoline.
13. Keep your Bounceboard® out of reach
of younger children and store it in a secure place.
Doggies like to chew and young children love to
play with your stuff.
14. Read instructions before use.
15. Use only on trampolines with padding covering
the springs to avoid damage to the Bounceboard.
16. You may wish to use a mouth guard, helmet,
wrist guards, kneepads, and elbow pads to further
reduce your risk of injury, especially your first
few tries. For the highest level of protection,
use a JumpSport or AlleyOop Sports Trampoline
and Safety Enclosure to protect you while you
17. Important warning: Some trampoline manufactures
will void their warranty if accessories of any
kind are used on the surface of the trampoline.
Check with your manufacturer before using the
Bounceboard®. We have found the Bounceboard
to be no more wearing to jumping surfaces
than your bare or stocking feet. It flexes with
the trampoline. JumpSport Inc. will not be held
liable for any damage the Bounceboard®
may cause to jumping devices.
