The equestrian experience of horse surfing

They say taking off is the hardest part. Please welcome the world of horse boarding, where horsepower is, in fact, the power output of a horse. Not a jet ski.

Horseboarding can be enjoyed both in the water of oceans and rivers, and in countryside race tracks. If you live by the sea, grab a surfboard, kite board, wake board or skim board and prepare to speed up to the 40 miles per hour (40 km/h).

If you live surrounded by green fields, make sure you get the official four-wheeled skate, and learn how to dominate the riding techniques by enrolling in a horseboarding course.

The horseboarding industry is slowly but steadily building. There are already multiple world championships, magazines and competitive teams. In 2005, Daniel Fowler-Prime and Matt Smith were the first in the world to tow a kite board behind a horse. The outdoor activity was named horse surfing.

Horse surfing competitions have rules. A maximum length of 250 meters for the course, four disciplines, safety procedures, video analysis, judgment criteria, etc. A tow rope connects the water rider and the horse rider.

The surfer can pull tricks, similar to those seen in kiteboarding and wakeboarding. Are you ready to try it?
