The World Championship Punkin Chunkin—which pits the world's most insane pumpkin launchers, catapults, and slighshots against each other in a no-holds-barred battle for long-distance supremacy—was recently cancelled for the second year in a row.

He's much better at dropping into massive barrels at Pipeline. In the second episode of Jamie O'Brien's show "Who is JOB 3.0" he shows what happens when surfers get bored: They build industrial strength Slip 'N Slides. O'Brien and his crew try to launch themselves all the way down the beach and into the ocean with the help of a winch. Not surprisingly, it results in some pretty hilarious slams.
