HMM - I don't know if it's a reason that kids do stupid things?  That is probably just a development/maturity thing.  

And I agree that the above activities should not be considered dangerous - though could be depending on what you are doing on your bike, board, skiis etc.  

Assessing the risk - after researching the topic - is why as a parent I won't have a trampoline.
