Slip and Slide: bodyboards are weapons of mass entertainment

When waves aren't pumping, you can't beat the entertainment factor provided by fast slip-and-slide bodyboarding rides. We've found the most creative downhill slope masters.

Bodyboard bottoms are the perfect gliding surface for these alternative prone riding stunts. The smooth and slick skins will add speed to the experience. But watch out, don't go too fast down the lane.

Slip-and-slide bodyboarders have tried almost everything, anywhere. In Australia, a team of intrepid riders traveled to a drainage canal, climbed over a barbed wire fence and rode the steep concrete slope. Illegal and fun.

At Moore River, in Western Australia, a bodyboarder went for the slip-and-slide and scored a perfect alley-oop, on the first attempt. Absolutely incredible. A must-see.

In Oahu, Hawaii, a group of friends hit the Waimanalo water reservoir with bodyboards. The goal was to ride the long walls on offer. The footage speaks for itself.

In Hilo, Hawaii, a young stand-up bodyboarder has slid down a grass garden in what looks like the longest slide and surf ride of all time. Enjoy life and stay safe.
