any specifics on how you did this?
http://www.alliancewake.com/wake/shredtown-blue-tubes/
I have a ton of those tube's laying around at a construction site right by me, and I've used them for snowboarding, but how did you guys go about putting the two "male" ends together?
I already have the frames from previous sliders laying around that are almost identical to the setup you had.

thanks! and that vid was super rad!!

NO DOUBT!!! Please Post it! Back in the Day (Mid Ninties) we used to order inside connectors (male to male) for PVC at the Hardware store I think they were like $9 each almost as much as the PVC was.

Ok well you can see on the video we have three supports each with a little v to hold the tubes in place. In the middle we used 2x6's instead of 2x4's for the v's to have a bigger surface where the tubes joined. We connected the male ends by screwing a 12 inch piece of 2x4 to the inside of the top of one, leaving half of it hanging out to join and screw into the other one. Get what I'm saying? It works perfectly. Be sure to measure and make your v's as tight as possible so the tube doesn't slide around, those things are super heavy.
