That girl looks a little too old to be having that much fun. I suspect she is on drugs, because this would probably be fun on drugs.
Dunno about you guys, but in my summers the ice cubes would be gone within 10 minutes.
She’s not having fun. She’s just realized the hard way that she’s sitting on ice.
What sled? I don’t see a sle… oh, wait, there it is.
I presume the model is not actually testing this thing bare-arsed, despite appearances…
I would bet you can get better speed (albeit a bumpier and more dizzying ride) by just tucking into a shoulder roll and throwing yourself down the hill.
Hmmmm… One of these days I’m going to have to invent something that will allow gravity to take you down hills… something round and spinny…
We used to buy 10 lb block ice, place a small towel on top, and slide down grass hills. Big fun! Beer helps…
In my day summer sleds had wheels and we called them wagons. Now what we really need is a maker to make a personal summer snow machine from an ice machine, a wood chipper and a leaf blower.
Put it in the shade and make an ice slide.
Does it also work if the rider is wearing pants?
I like the picture of the boy in the summer sledding pictures on their site. It’s obvious the sled isn’t moving and they just blurred the grass around him. They didn’t go into great detail so the grass next to his body is still clear.
The video seems to show it working.
WindyBt, I believe you’re just seeing JPEG image compression artifacts. They’ve compressed that picture pretty far to make it 14kb.
I would like to second #8’s recommendation of just using ice blocks and towels (I also recommend the beer).
We always used ice blocks designed for house boat ice chests but you can probably find them elsewhere or build your own mold. I’d probably suggest approximately 6″x8″x12″ but smaller blocks equal harder to stay on equal more fun.
MAN! I came up with this idea like 6 years ago, when we used to go ice block sledding. Depending on how hot it is outside if its not a thick ice-block then it melts too fast. On the other hand it is REALLY FUN. On a long steep grass hill its probably one of the best thing to do on a summer’s day, but remember theres no snow cushion when you slamming into things! kudos for the person that took this idea all the way. I had drawings and everything HEHE
I kinda feel pervy for looking at this pic far longer than the true subject warrants.
Hawtnez on sledz?
Cardboard boxes work great on grassy hills.
Sounds like something out of the ACME catalog. Is there a rocket-powered version, or maybe one with a little propeller that blows onto a sail to make it go faster?
Great, now you have to soap the whole hill up instead of just he runners on the sled.
bumpity, bumpity, bumpity.
@#16 That’s disgusting… that you would write what I was thinking.
Too bad the chick in the pic wasn’t in the video….I would’ve bought ten.
Better luck next time ice sled ….thingy
Get a slip and slide and a plastic disc, save a lot of money that way.
