Let the Fun Times Roll
Devin Supertramp’s team has put it’s own twist on surfing
for what they call “Urban Surfing.”
They hit the wicked streets of San Francisco to create what looks like a giant slip ‘n slide. After laying down some plastic and spraying on a bit of water and adding a few toys, they started the fun rolling.
We like the idea that just about anyone can do this. It’s an instant urban park slip ‘n slide, a gathering of kids who like to slip, surf, skate, and slide, courtesy of your local fire hydrant and whatever tunes you might have available on hand.
Oh, it probably takes a lot of plastic, a city permit, liability insurance and some porta-potties, too. You know how San Francisco goes.
And kids really can have too much fun. Slip and slides have always been fairly notorious for more than a few falls, twisted legs, broken elbows and dented chins. Nothing says Summer fun quite like tequila shooters and lost teeth. Fortunately youth these days are very malleable.
We only hope they know the Golden State of Cali is headlong into a drought. Perhaps taking their plastic sand pails and filling them up, they watered down some thirsty urban trees while munching down some Bear Naked Granola before catching the next performance of
Beach Blanket Babylon.
