Despite living by the sea, I have never surfed. Or ridden a jetski. If this was a massive site with a big staff, I’d ask our resident surfing expert to take a look at this game, but its just me, so lets get on with is.

Surf Game, looks impressive, and by its own admission is a prototype. I found it difficult to control, even with a screenshot of the controls next to me while I played. Surfing enthusiasts may get a kick out of it.


Mark Theyer the coder went on to make several PSX games, including Jet Racer, which this game seems to be the prototype for. As well as this he worked on Cars: Race-O-Rama for the Nintendo DS, and South Park Rally for the N64.
