This video had me think how cool it would be to have a smallest slope contest and oddest slope contest. With the right conditions you should be able to fly off some unusual lift sources.

Then there is artificial slopes like this....
Thanks for those vidlinks. I remember in 1981, people would use the ridge lift off the condos on Daytona Beach to stay up for a long time. I think they were Hobie Hawks. Times have changed!
