Shield Surfing is an ability in Breath of the Wild.


Breath of the Wild

To perform Shield Surfing, Link can jump on his Shield and ride down the slopes of snow-, sand-, or grass-covered mountains and hills as though it were a snowboard. Different Shields have different speeds and levels of control. Using a Shield this way on rough terrain drains the Shield's durability, so it can break if this technique is overused. However, Shield Surfing on snow or sand does not damage the Shield.
