The Bounce, can be said as bouncing and water bounce, is an outdoor water activity in which a participant sits on the end of a partially inflated air bag which known as a water trampoline or bounce and is then launched into the water after another participant jumps onto the air bag from a platform on the opposite side. The air bag is approximately 10 meters long by 2 meters wide. The recommended height of the tower or jumping platform is 15 feet above the water surface or 10 feet above the air bag. This is a famous water activity especially during the summer camps in North America. Now, it is a worldwide game for everyone.
