We first started public sessions after the enormous success of our workshops at various summer festivals in 2009. We had many people get in touch with us after the events wanting to know more about bocking and could they have another go.
Who are we to say no?
We have 4 pairs of adult stilts and 3 pairs of junior stilts which are all new with very little use. You hire these stilts for the duration of the session and have your own personal tutor to make sure you learn the basics as quickly and as safely as possible.
Choosing the correct size stilt
When we say size we mean the strength of the spring. If the spring is too powerful you will find it very difficult to jump.
Please choose the size closest to your total body weight, with shoes on. If you need help with this please ask us before booking.
Adult 60kg – we have 2 pairs of these
Adult 70kg – we have 1 pair of these
Adult 80kg – we have 1 pair of there
Junior 40kg – we have 2 pairs of these
Junior 50kg – we have 1 pair of these
These stilts are booked on a first come, first served basis.
If you have any questions about public sessions then hopefully the answers below will help you. Of course you can always email, text or call us or post any questions in our discussion forum.
Anyone under the age of 10 wanting to try would be welcome to have a go at any of our festival workshops or open days.
Either bring a drink or money to buy drinks at the shop across the road.
Anyone under 13 MUST have a parent or guardian present.
We know what we’re doing.
We hold you up the entire time until you are ready to walk on your own and even then you will be on soft material that will cushion any falls. We also ensure you wear appropriate wrist and knee guards and a helmet if needed.
Please note that you do this at your own risk and we cannot be held responsible for any injuries sustained.
As long as you listen and do what your tutor tells you then you will be fine.
Once you can jump on your own then you will move on to some small obstacles to jump onto and to jump over.
Only after you can jump reasonably high and in good control will you be able to try some of the more advanced tricks on the crash mats.
