Sliding down slopes
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. Using a Shield this way on rough terrain like the rocks on Death Mountain will drain the Shield's Durability, so it can break if this technique is overused. However, Shield Surfing on Snow, Sand, or rocky pathway does not damage the Shield,[verification needed] and Shield Surfing during Rain reduces damage done to the Shield and increases speed.
