Tarp surfing: 'let's start by buying some IKEA bags...'

Tarp surfing is the new action sports trend born between the California surfers and skateboarders.

It all started in the mid-90s, but the "technology" has evolved in the last years.

The easiest way to score a barrel is by tarp surfing. You just need a skateboard, some IKEA bags and a couple of friends.

Of course, some of your friends are more creative than others. They even paddle for the each wave... er... tarp.

Tarp surfing is a great alternative to the small summer waves. Watch the tarp surfing video from the Santa Cruz crew.
