    Why aren’t they naked while doing this? What’s wrong with college kids these days?

  2. crispy says

    That looks fun as hell to me. Granted, I’m not old and decrepit like other commenters here. I assume 34 is the year of your birth?

  3. Joe says

    I’d be right there with them, having a sweet-ass time. And yes, naked would be the best! haha.

  4. NotSafeForWork says

    Came for “out of the gene pool” joke. Not disappointed to see it was one of the first!

    I didn’t see anything stupid here. These people are athletic, experienced, and aware of their environment. And they were good enough to share their unusual and fantastic day.

    I’m hard-pressed to understand the motives of the critics here. You don’t like water sports? Athletic bodies? Straight folks? Acrophobic?

    btw, I’m 62 and I can swim and dive better than Shelly Winters. If I were invited to join these guys I’d jump at it.

  6. NotSafeForWork says

    AKRONTRU Did the leave the scope up there after your last colonoscopy? Lighten up.

  7. Qj201 says

    If they were doughy beer bellied straight men this would not be featured here.

    Acting stupid isn’t studly.

  8. UFFDA says

    Hey where were the “people of color”? How can us white folk possibly have fun with so much guilt beating down on us like the sun. Derrick from Philly and Jamal are mad (again). Those shameless young people should go right back into their houses and spend more time thinking about the appropriatness of their joy, not to mention their gene pool.

    Looks fun, but look at the water. What sort of affect is all of that soap going to have on wildlife (trout, bald eagles)? You don’t need soap to slip and slide.

  10. Andy says

    Fun, and good filming. It was scary to see how close the guy got to the edge with his camera, though. Yikes.

  11. Tyler says

    Why is Towleroad posting videos of happy, normal people? We need more posts about dudes who want to have their dongs surgically removed!

  12. melvin says

    Kevin – Lake Powell is such a mess that a little soap would probably be an improvement.

  13. JSB says

    Don’t get all the negativity in the comments on almost every Towleroad article.

    Wish I was brave enough to do this, looks like a lot of fun. Naked would not be fun at the speed they are hitting the water or the friction from belly sliding down, I appreciate my junk to much, OUCH!

  14. Tyler says

    Oh hey, Fake Tyler (aka Rick). I see you’re posting transphobic comments under my name again, even though everyone knows I’m a huge supporter of Trans rights. But hey: make your tolling as obvious as possible.

    I would have caught this sooner but I was sleeping in after a wonderful night out with friends (you don’t have any friends, so I don’t expect you to understand that.

    Thank you for brining your transphobia into every story because it makes your crazy just that more obvious.

    I’m a scaredy cat……

    This would give me an attack of the vapours !
    But party-on dudes.

  18. Honesty says

    at first i was like, “they’re so dumb” and then i was like, “they’re just having a good time, why hate?” and then finally I was like, “ok they’re getting welts and losing teeth while doing this… they’re idiots…” (A play by play)

  19. Pookie says

    They aren’t stupid; they did proper safety prep before-hand and ran several elaborate tests to make sure this was safe to do.

  20. Anthony says

    Looks fun.. but having high top sneakers (or were those boots) when you’re gonna need ro swim up to the surface is prolly a bad idea!

  21. Tyler says

    Fake Tyler (Rick): you’re aware of the fact that I can see you, right? I will always call you out when you post transphobic bs under my name.

    I’m not saying you should throw yourself off a cliff and kill yourself. But I am saying that nobody would miss you if you did.

  22. Tatts says

    I do not understand the haters here. Those guys are out on Lake Powell, in extraordinary scenery, on gorgeous days, having fun–and earning a living doing it.

    Oh, wait, now I understand. Jealousy. You looked down at your Cheetos-stained fingers and the water-stained carpet in you basement room and you realized that there are people who aren’t doomed to live a life like yours.

    It looks like a blast; I’d go in a second.

  23. Sean Maloney says

    What? Not one single bathing suit flying off because of inertia? I cry, “Foul!”

  24. jarago says

    Great filmmaking! They are young hot and foolish- but isn’t the point of being 20…

  25. Rexford says

    It would be more studly if their swimwear of choice were square cuts or bikini briefs.

  26. SteveInDE says

    I can’t imagine doing anything like that, but what I wouldn’t give to have the memories these folks now have after such an experience.

  27. Larry says

    Although that looked amazing, and was probably a lot of fun, I cringed. Quite a lot of people have broken their necks and became paralyzed on slip and slides.

  28. kyle says

    What I want to know is, how the hell much trouble it is to get back up there and go, again…

  29. Chadd says

    I would much rather hang out with these guys than almost any of of the commenters on TR.

  30. Rick says

    The hostility you see in this thread is similar to the kind of hostility you see among effeminate gay men towards other masculine activities–(football, boxing, etc.)

    Anything that reminds them of their own deficient masculinity and cowardice is a source of bitterness and anger to them, a reminder of why they don’t like themselves very much (and shouldn’t)…..and so they lash out at such activities and the participants in them.

    I suspect that those whose comments are more positive are not of the effeminate variety.

  31. Tired says

    You show me a gay man who denigrates “effeminate men” and I’ll show you a boy whose father resented having a gay son. Rick, every time you come on Towleroad to anonymously vent your anger, what you’re really telling everyone is that your family was ashamed to call you their son.

  32. Derrick from Philly says

    @” Derrick from Philly and Jamal are mad (again). Those shameless young people should go right back into their houses …”

    What?

    I couldn’t give a bourbon smelling poop about those crazy-ass boys. They can jump off the damn Grand Canyon for all I care. And you can join ’em, Uffda, Rick, Enchantra, Litper, Petey (nick name for your penis)… or whatever the f.ckin’ posting name you’re using for today.

    Rick, it’s something how you killed off David Hagatha Hearne. I hated the b1tch, but the old gal didn’t deserve to die…well, not yet.

  33. EchtKultig says

    OMG…apparently Towleroad doesn’t realize that this guy is a Mormon filmmaker (“Devinsupertramp”), that most of the people who appear in his videos are Mormon, and that these videos are probably being funded by the Mormon church, to make it look “hip”?

  34. EchtKultig says

    Rick, I’m not effeminate, but I don’t like Mormon astroturf. (google it) I’m surprised nobody has cracked the case on this propaganda. A couple years or so ago I looked at all his erstwhile videos…you will never see a drop of alcohol in them as you’d expect for “studs hangin’ out” videos. Back then, if you posted comments about that aspect of the videos – and I wasn’t the only one who tried – he would delete the comments. However, the videos were linked to from various Mormon blogs around the net. Again, to say, “look at how hip and cool us Mormons can be”.
