    Check out some pics of my home made Proslide. It works really well. Made it out of a snow sled and some angle iron.

    It's pretty cool but it won't spring up like a proslide and turning with it will be totally different.

    You are right in that it doesn't turn like a real one, I just step off it on the turns.
    However, here's how it stripes.

    aha, it's a riding/striping attatchment. Cool Idea. Thing is, won't work well on pavement, etc. Nice results.

    That could be be a new sport, doing tricks on a snowboard while cutting grass. :)

    I'm not trying to talk negative about your design, I think its a great idea, but could this dragging over the ground possibly be of any good to the grass blades and the health of the grass itself? It seems like to me that this dragging motion of your weight (or anyones weight) on the slide would literally tear and pull at the grass when going over it. The other things used for striping such as rollers etc.. aren't putting quite as much pressure on the grass.
