EVERYONE is talking about this video. Some people have even dubbed this Jamaican lifeguard the “Jesus of Water Slides”. I don’t know about all that, but I will say this move is pret-ty sweet.
People who have been to the resort insist it’s real and the lifeguard, Rolando Johnson, practiced the move for 2 years before finally sticking the landing, telling TMZ the technique is easy:
1. Get a big push at the top of the slide for maximum speed
2. Cross your legs and sit up RIGHT before shooting out of the tube.
Rolando says that sitting up motion, coupled with the speed creates the glide.
He’s not the only one that can pull it off either, apparently a bunch of the lifeguards can and are now a big attraction at the Pirates Island Waterpark. Still pretty awesome though.
