Human Slingshots Are Probably the Most Fun You Can Have on Land

Sure, I know that human slingshots aren't exactly new but not new doesn't mean they're not fun. In fact, like this video proves, if you get a group of friends together with a few helmet cams, video cameras, an ATV and a human slingshot, you'll have the time of your freaking life.

This particular human slingshot was made by the Pope family in Hobble Creek Canyon, Utah (!) and is supposed to be the OG human slingshot. If you think about it, it's nothing more than two posts and some bungie cords but that's pigeonholing its awesomeness—it's more like horizontal bungie jumping. And it looks so motherloving fun. I guess I finally have a reason to go to Utah. [YouTube via Oh Have You Seen This]

"I guess I finally have a reason to go to Utah."

I know Utah gets a bad rap sometimes but it's an awesome place for outdoor stuff. In the Winter there's great skiing and throughout the rest of the year, there's some awesome places. Bryce Canyon, Zion NP, Canyonlands NP, Capitol Reef NP, The Great Salt Lake.
