Kid’s all over the world like to push boundaries and try new things in an attempt to get a buzz and get the adrenaline pumping. A group of teens in Yemen have found an unusual way of getting about using a man made aqua duct, and use the brick built structure as a shortcut by surfing along the narrow irrigation channel.
The video of the lads surfing the aqua duct appeared on the Liveleaks website yesterday, loaded by Skinner and is going down a storm with over 85000 views in 24 hours, as people tune in to watch surfing Yemeni style. Whilst the women of the village go about their business on foot, the inventive boys in the clip, cruise effortlessly along the stream.
There seems to be plenty of potential for stubbed toes and a fall could easily lead to bruised or broken legs but it doesn’t seem to worry the teenagers who are too cool for school and have got the art of irrigation channel surfing wired! The Liveleaks clip is embedded below where you can see the boys surfing the aqua duct for yourself. Let’s hope it isn’t the drinking water feed for the village!
