Shield Surfing is an ability in Breath of the Wild.[1]


To perform Shield Surfing, Link can jump on any of his Shields and ride down the slopes of Snow-, Sand-, or Grass-covered mountains and hills as though it were a Snowboard. Different Shields have different frictions and speeds, as do different surfaces. Using a Shield this way on rough terrain like the rocks on Death Mountain will drain the Shield's Durability rapidly, so it can break if this technique is overused. However, Shield Surfing on Snow, Sand, dirt paths or grass does not damage the Shield anywhere near as much,[verification needed] and Shield Surfing during Rain further reduces damage done to the Shield and increases speed.
