With the start of the new season at Bugsboarding comes the introduction of the highly anticipated airbag named after our dear friend George and it is guaranteed to provide hours of fun for riders of all ages. The airbag allows individuals on mountainboards and bikes to perfect their skills and push their limits in a safe and fun way, all you need to do is let us know if you think you’re up to it!
The airbag adds that perfect boost of confidence for riders to practice their tricks in a safe and controlled environment and what’s more, it acts as a great inspiration tool for riders just starting out. Furthermore, not only does the airbag security the impact from landing jumps, it is also a great hygienic alternative to commonly used foam pits and explains why even athletes at the top of their game are turning to it to improve their freestyle moves.
Situated to the right of the track, the airbag allows riders to attempt the border cross and the grass slope whilst waiting for their turn, with Jimmy waiting at the bottom in the lift truck to provide a handy lift back to the top again. We hold day and evening sessions for avid riders so if the airbag is an activity that you fancy taking on at Bugsboarding, just give us a call to book.
We’re back on the scene for 2021, kicking off the season with the introduction of the new air bag, fresh new tracks and much more. Bugsboarding activity centre is now open for the season, so whether it’s family grass sledging, mountain boarding, biking or even a bit of camping that you’re after, we can guarantee there’ll be something for you! The centre provides activities for all ages, and group sizes, so please do get in touch to book, we are open every weekend from April – October and every weekday during the school holidays, give us a ring to book or alternatively feel free to turn up for a great family day out!
The season got underway with sone fresh new tracks being built, suiting mountain boarders of all abilities, alongside the introduction of our new air bag to help you perfect your jumps. For those looking for a new challenge and to improve their tricks safely, the airbag is great and has been a hugely popular addition to the track this year. As always, Mountfest was a huge success this year and we already cannot wait to do it all over again – stay tuned for more events coming up!

We are having a Halloween party fun day on Thursday 31st October 2019. The day will run from 11am till 5pm and will include a fancy dress competition, BBQ, fun games and a mini competition. We have 50 free tickets and 50 half price tickets up for grabs just phone text or email us to claim one!
We are going to try and install a big air freestyle bag at BugsBoarding! We really want to build an amazing freestyle scene at Bugs and we need your input to help this happen.
In order to fund this installation, we are offering the first hundred people to sign up a 2 year membership to Bugs for £100. This normally costs £400 and will include free riding whenever we’re open, plus unlimited free use of the airbag.
If we don’t get up to 100 people, then unfortunately we won’t be able to offer the discounted membership and therefore there will be nothing to pay.
The first 20 slots have already been taken, and we need to get the funds together by the end of the summer so we can place our order and have the airbag ready for summer opening next year (2020).
The bag will be suitable for boards, bikes and dirt scooters, so spread the word! (just thinking – how much would it cost to install a strip of dry ski slope so we could open up to snowboarders/skiers too?)
Your membership will also allow you to become one of the Bugs Boarding crew, with input into how we develop the freestyle side of the centre – tell us what you’d like to see and how we can make the perfect freestyle setup for you and the community!
Join the Bugs air crew and have a t shirt and exclusive membership to an awesome team who design the jumps routes in and best types of events to best promote our individual sports. We want anyone who is keen to ride and get involved to sign up and support us and in return you will get a two year membership worth £400 for your £100 membership fee. It gets you unlimited riding and free camping for two full years and as much input into the build as you can spare or want to partake, we would be grateful for your input the hundred members would be raising £10000 towards a £15000 project so Bugsboarding will be paying the last £5000 and the generator running costs as well as supplying the land ,machines and materials for the site set up
