Gravity Hurts in Detroit

It’s either that title, or Detroit needs a new physics department could be another title. This slide was recently reopened and the video tells it all but there are other similar videos on YT which show the proper way to slide downward.

A DNR expert said the way to properly ride the beast is to stay in forward bend all the way down so that the head does not go away from the body’s center of gravity on the way down.

Quite a funny video, but I suppose there’s a physics lesson in there too.

Oh man, gravity hurts! :slight_smile:

I learned that lessons the hard way after a steep descent on my first (and last) snowboard effort. Gotta keep your COG in front of you :wink:
