BEach flip fest with new toy ( just an idea for now)
« on: April 29, 2010, 01:15:55 PM »



 this is 12" tall and 10 feet long.. roughly the size of a trampoline,  but you can attach more as desired... runs 1600 for one "mat" and should give equal bounce as a tumble track or rod floor.

 Im thinking it would be pretty sick to set this up at the beach and have a " flip fest"  possibly even a contest...... or just setting it up on china walls and getting bout it!

 
     A cheeper route would be to buy this


 but its obviously not as thick or as bouncy...


 For a landing pad or " pit"  we can take a water bed mattress and fill it with air. and dig it in...


 Total cost would be around 3500-4000$  So I would probably charge like a 5$/day "service" charge.



 what do you all think

you seen videos with those balance balls?  seems like less work digging up and cheaper too?

 THe ball only gives you one flip and not really the safest landing to go crazy on.

 I wasnt worried about the price or whats cheapest

 Only part I would need to dig in would be the landing and thats totally optional

I like the idea, just like Ryan said, a bit on the high range price if you ask me.

You thinking of this for a biz?

Not a biz,  just for somthing to go crazy on with flips, outside.  Would be good publicity too.  As well as a great backdrop for sampler vids

but you would buy the stuff right? not rent it?  why not rent it see if it's something you'd want to commit to buying?...seems like a great idea, but I dunno if the practicality of it is there.  I'm sure you have other ideas for this besides taking it to the beach, but would you really use this enough to make it worth the purchase?

Imagine a whole bunch of these buried side by side along the length of a beach.
*sigh
if only

$5/hour is no where near enough
$8.50 ftw

I think its a great idea....permitted you plan on using it enough to make the purchase worthwhile.....
