Does this sport require the rider to look like a retard?

The day I see a horse up on one of those hydrofoil surfboards, I'll take this seriously.

"It just feels amazing - you have the power of the horse and the power of the wave which are two of nature's most inspiring forces."

This is sure to be a big hit with the wolf t-shirt and dreamcatcher crowd. People that speak in obsessive hyperbole about nature are almost as annoying as people that abuse the word "community".

here comes the peta people on how the horse is being used and humiliated.

I like how he pretends the horse is his partner. Know what that horse wants to do? Eat, stand around, maybe take a jog from time to time, get some water, eat more, and then maybe take a nap or perhaps fark a horse and then eat again. It does not give one god damm rat's ass about surfing.

They surf in England?

Wow, I would hate to fall off the board doing 25 mph into shallow ass water.(mouth full of sand) Not smart.. I'll stick to being pulled behind a boat and using up precious resources.

Horsesurfing is the brainchild of stuntman Daniel Fowler-Prime who thought up the idea with friends when they grew bored of their existing hobbies ways of trying to kill themselves.

People who feel compelled to use extreme redundancies like "excessive hyperbole" are more annoying than those who use any variety of hyperbole.

Hyperbole is both predictable and excusable when a speaker is excited, especially about the ineffable. Hyperbole is the very soul of many a treasured Fark headline.

Redundancy, on the other hand, is redundant. If I could be any more redundant while expressing my views on redundancy, I fear I would be responsible for the special illness that many get when forced to hear or read redundant material.

Take a look at this very post, and you'll see that redundancy, and its cousin, repetition, are more irritating that hyperbole. I shall support my view by stating redundantly that hyperbole is greenlit more than redundancy.

/thank the gods.

In the "officially slacking" department, I do not see a single Camilla Parker Bowles or Prince Charles comment in this thread.

Come on, people, even the articles British!

I thought surfing involved riding surf?

This looks more like skiing to me.

/or wake boarding but wake boarding needs a wake?

Ummm, I don't see any surf in that picture, it's more correct to call it "horse boarding" imho... and that quote in the headline is pretty silly since there is not much power in 6 inches of standing water!

/just got back from surfing
//the power of the wave compels you!!!!

Just wait til that horse takes a dump when it decides to. Or wait til it trips and falls and the guy behind it sails right into that horses butthole. Good times!!
