Spring Action

Spring Action is a Canadian team of trampoliners combining comedy and high flying in a family affair. Sean McManus is the comedy side of things, wearing orange coveralls for the better part of the show, acting the part of an oblivious clumsy oaf who can't handle himself on the trampoline and keeps falling into inopportune places (by the end of the set, he's not the clumsy oaf anymore). His wife Heather, who competed on the circuit including at the Olympics, plays it straight and impresses with her acrobatic skills. Their son even takes part in the show. This particular trampoline has spots set around the edges for Sean to tumble into as part of the routine. I'll have some more of them from the finale show (I'm still in the process of getting the posts ready; I took like a thousand shots over the course of the weekend between this event and Colonel By Day).


  1. Sounds so fun! I would enjoy the trampoline show and laugh till my stomach ache! Have a wonderful day!

  2. It's been too long since I dropped by. A trampolining post is the perfect time to make an appearance. :)

  3. Takes a lot of practice to work one properly, it's not just jumping about.

  4. Trampolines used to be the rage when I was in junior high. You'd pay by the hour. Pretty safe, and good exercise.

  5. is all about ups and downs!

  6. I always admire people with gymnastics moves, I never had them.

  7. The trampoline looks so fun and at least everyone in the crowd can see.


  8. very cool, i have not been on a trampoline in years. looks fun. ( :

  9. I can’t see past the danger of such acts most of he time. Don’t think I could watch it.

  12. Sean and Heather look like they are having so much fun performing.. you can see that by the size of their audience, super captures William ✨

  13. Looks funny and I'm not even there. Great facial expressions.

  14. When I was a teenager, I loved jumping on a trampoline but, I don't think I ever got as high as the fellow in the first two photos.

  15. I had fun just looking at the pictures. I'll bet it was great to see it live! :-)

  16. That must have been so much fun to watch. They are very talented!

    @Red: it was a blast to watch.

    @Sharon: she got quite high.

    @DJan: it was indeed.

    @Marleen: they are!

    @Bill: oh, yes!

  19. Fun to watch.
    It's a good few years since I was last on a trampoline! LOL!
    The grandchildren enjoy it at school :)

    All the best Jan

  20. I think I'd be terrified just watching them!
