Crazy Aussies Built a Slip N Slide as Long as a Football Field

Every year Paul Borrud builds a massive homebrew Slip N Slide to help celebrate Australia Day, which falls on January 26. (Remember, it’s summer there.) This year’s effort measured almost 330-feet long and ended in a billabong that wasn’t quite large enough to contain most riders as they came rocketing down the slope. But risking your life is half the fun of a Slip N Slide, isn’t it?
