Crazy Surfing – Yemeni-Style

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.

[ NOTE: SD format as it was very early digital footage shot back in 2005 and uploaded to Youtube in 2006; I may remaster it soon.]
