Surfing Yemeni-Style

Moments From The Road

Last updated:

Whilst traveling Yemen, I encountered this crazy stunt – boys surfing barefoot down ancient irrigation channels amid the mountain villages.

And surprisingly they didn’t fall, because an accident would wreck an ankle in this strange local sport.
