Ski Jump in the East River Park (or The Lengths NYers Will Go)

The subway ride to work usually invites nothing surfy other than the ruminations of a morning that could have been, ineffective attempts at discerning the swell based on a passing view of the East River and brief nostalgic day dreaming about warmer times and nearer breaks. Lately however, this built up ski-jumpesque contraption, built of shipping containers on the baseball field in the East River Park has been catching my attention. The other day, before it actually, really snowed, some guys were out there sno-blowing the thing.

Check out the hilarity.

But what is the deal with the riders inevitably crashing head-long into that A-frame?
