* There's a bit in the ''StarWars'' [[StarWarsExpandedUniverse Expanded Universe]] where one of Luke's childhood friends, [[http://starwars.wikia.com/wiki/Laze_Loneozner Fixer]], is tired of Luke and Biggs beating him at racing and the various other sports, so he invents sandsurfing. Trouble is, the moment they pick up on the sport, Luke and Biggs start to surpass him, so he ramps it up. Eventually he tries to jump over the Sarlaac pit. And fails, meaning that his two friends have to save him from a [[AndIMustScream truly horrible fate]]. After that, they agree that Fixer's the king of sandsurfing, but somehow it doesn't feel as good as he thought it would.

* ''Film/DieAnotherDay'': In one of the most derided scenes in the moves, Bond uses an improvised surfboard made from the hull of a wrecked ice yacht to para-surf an unconvincing CGI tsunami.

** This seems to be Sonic's forte besides his SuperSpeed as other games have proven. In ''SonicStorybookSeries'' first game, he surfs on logs multiple times in Dino Jungle, and in Pirate Storm, uses a CANNON BALL LAUNCHED FROM SHIPS to travel between them

* ''WhateleyUniverse'': Riptide, who is an aquakinetic, has a deviser hoverboard that runs on her own wave power, so she appears to be surfing across the sky on a little cloud. Thrasher is a skater boy who has PK powers and so his skateboard is a PK construct that can slide across anything, and go uphill.

* ''Fanfic/SoulEaterTroubledSouls'': In their pursuit of Eruka and the Mizunes, [[OriginalCharacter Tsuji and Caius]] are falling down the outside of Cobra Island�s snake monolith. To slow their descent, Tsuji breaks off a large piece of rock and surfs down the rocky exterior with Caius clinging to his back. Their landing involves Tsuji expertly maneuvering through the trees and grinding on branches like rails. He repeats these boarding skills with a different rock by surfing down a river in hopes of capturing the crystal ball needed to turn things around for the heroes.

* ''{{Hoodwinked}}'': Granny Puckett surfs down a sky bucket cable on a muffin pan. Awesome when you consider how chairlifts have a standard 4.8 meter rope gauge, which makes you question whether or not this is plausible in real life.

* During ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings: The Two Towers'' and the Battle for Helm's Deep, we get a short but memorable scene of Legolas using his elven agility to surf an [[OurOrcsAreDifferent uruk-hai]]'s shield down a staircase, firing arrows until he reaches the bottom and sends the shield into one foe before stabbing another with a spare arrow. This was only surpassed in the third film when he slid down a dying ''[[WarElephants mûmak]]'''s trunk after single-handedly killing it and its riders.

* In ''PhantasyStarOnline2'', a special skill Ride Slasher exists for weapons of the sword class is the ability to surf on a sword like rocket powered board with one of these weapons being a giant tuna allowing for some amusing fun.
