I definitely wouldn’t want to jump very high on a 12" trampoline!
I assume it’s one of those big round ones with the high danger factor.
Realistically, any trampoline is going to have a relatively high danger
factor. You can’t make the whole world bouncy, and even if you do you can
still land wrong.
I have unicycled on a trampoline, and in an inflatable “moon walk” bouncy
room. The trampoline was a high-end college one, at SUNY Purchase (1983
International Jugglers Association Festival). See a picture on my Things
not to do page: http://www.unicycling.com/things/default.htm#21
We found riding on this trampoline to be basically impossible. The surface
was so grippy, you couldn’t steer at all and would fall to the side almost
immediately. But hopping worked.
In the moon walk (pictures to be posted someday but don’t hold your
breath), I was after a picture and didn’t really try to ride. I had my
shoes off per the rules (temporarily ignoring the no-unicycles rule) and
my feet were hurting! Plus the floor was like a bunch of fat tubes stuck
together, so would not have worked well for riding on anyway.
But why ride on something that’s made to be bounced on? When I’m on a
trampoline, I jump. When Kris Holm is on a trampoline, he (probably)
