No Waves? No Worries, Try Tarp Surfing

By Kasia Cieplak-Mayr von Baldegg

All you need is a parking lot, a giant blue tarp, and a skateboard to "surf" on dry land. Produced by The Observatory, the skate video was shot in the Channel Islands, apparently after eight weeks sans surf.  Tarp surfing isn't new, but this video in particular wins for great cinematography and a dreamy summer soundtrack.
