Hard, medium or soft?

How should the mat feel to train yourself optimally? 

The mat can be inflated in three ways so that the result is a hard mat, a medium hard mat or a soft surface.

  • When the mat feels hard means that there is a lot of pressure on it. In this way you create a kind of 'dead' floor, which is often used in competitions.
  • Are you somewhat lower in pressure, then you get a somewhat better 'bounce', which is ideal if you want to train jumps.
  • You get a soft mat at even lower pressure, and this is advised when users are athletes with a beginner level or when it will be played by, for example, children.

The best way to determine what pressure is right is to stand on the mat and make sure you don't drop all the way down when you jump.

When in doubt, it is better to pump some more air into it.
