“Sumo Surfing” Is Here! The Newest Way To Get Wet This Summer!

Talk About A Wet And Wild Water Ride!

OK, I love the internet – and this is one more reason why! I found a guy dressed like a Sumo Wrestler – so he could go body surfing!

Yes, the “Sumo Tube” is the new surfboard, and it’s amazing!

Of course, when you show up you look a bit goofy:

Um….

As you can see, the key is to don it and then get in the water AS FAST AS YOU CAN.

But, even though you may look a bit goofy, it all pays off when your wave comes in!

I love this stuff, and found a couple of great videos to promote the “Sumo Tube” – here a one that shows the surfers in action:

Distractify.com had a great video, and a ton of other fun facts about it…and here’s a link to another amazing video with professional body surfer Fred David, who also donned the “Sumo Suit” to amazing effect:

I would love to try this, although with a much smaller wave, and this reminded me of a very special water park I highlighted recently:

Welcome To the Slip’n’Fly!

Yes, a water park that literally lets you fly, fly away! See the lip at the bottom of the slide? That’s to make sure you go up up up!

Check out more on this incredible water adventure here:

If you want to have a more relaxed adventure, how about this?

Yes, it’s a “lazy river” right in your underwater hotel! Check it out here:
