Every season on the May 21st weekend (yes, I said May 21st), Sunshine Village in Alberta holds its annual Slush Cup. What makes their event tricky is that the launch ramp is about seven feet higher than the water, so you need to land it perfectly or else it's KABLAM!!!
I took a look at some video from last years event (only 3 guys made it across) to see what they did right and what the others did wrong. The guys who were on their tails ended up on their backs in a big hurry. The guys that were balanced were the ones that made it across. It looked as though legs together was part of the secret too.
I ripped a few highlights from the video so you can see for yourself. The three guys that made it are at the end... the "entertainment" is at the beginning. It's about 11 megs so it will take a few moments to download (the complete video is over 40 MB, so I'm not going to waste the bandwidth on my hosting server).
