If you’ve followed The Olympics in Pyongyang, then you might be dreaming of recreating some of the athletes craziest moves, well dream no more, it is now possible to do so with the Airbag ( if you are in a resort that has one that is ). It’s an incredible unique and fun experience that is available to everyone over the age of 5!
Channel your inner Kevin Rolland , become the king of the back flip, cork or any other aerial trick you fancy, but hey, remember that once you’re a champ on the airbag the next step is to land it for real on snow or concrete , so think hard about the landing too during every practice session. The biggest risk we’ve encountered is kids and adults alike getting hooked on the adrenaline rush and forgetting that the actual aim is to improve and master your tricks.
The airbag’s goal is to teach you how to ace your aerial game in the best conditions while having the maximum amount of fun.
