Steerable plumbing tube sled

From across the pond, Instructables user AndyGadget designed a sled (or sledge) made from pvc tubing:

We have a couple of the cheap plastic sledges which are pretty fast, but not at all steerable and break easily. I wanted a sledge which was strong, steerable and fast. I chose the waste pipe to give a minimal contact area on hard snow but a larger area as the snow deepens. The tube is also slightly flexible to allow bending for the steering.

This is his second version, hence the grass in the background.

This tube sled is really showing your grassing and creation power. I really want to appreciate you. Thanks for the sharing your experience and the regarding method.
