Woodward at Copper catches up with TJ Schiller. TJ was one of W@C’s guest pro coaches during the Orage and Dragon sponsored weeks.

Without further delay: Fab 5.5 with TJ Schiller

W@C: Yah, Hi TJ, what exactly would you say it is that you do here?

TJ: I come to Woodward @ Copper to practice tricks im uncomfortable trying on snow. The trampolines have the perfect bounce, the trainers are there always helping you get you want to get done. The foam pit launch from the tramp is by far my favorite.

W@C: Did you learn or perfect any new tricks while you were here?

TJ: I perfected my double rodeos and double corks while i was there. I was able to bring them to snow just 2 days ago. It helped me gain the confidence i needed.

W@C: Autobots or Decepticons and why?

TJ: Auto’s
Bumblebee is one bad-ass.

W@C: What is your style? Hesh, Tall-T, Lamp shade, gypsy, other?

TJ: Strong.

W@C: What/who/where/when was your favorite thing/person/place/time at Woodward at Copper?

TJ: First day just seeing the entire setup blew my mind. I felt like a little kid again and just bounced all day. It was epic.

W@C: Final word?
