Shield surfing is a unique feature in The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. It allows Link to perform tricks while riding on a shield. Depending on the terrain, the player can surf on snow or a grassy hill.

Shield surfing is a great way to get around Hyrule faster. But be careful! While surfing, the shield can break and damage the player’s health. Likewise, if the player surfs down a rocky terrain, the shield can break and send the player forward. This can cause a deadly fall.

Luckily, there are a few shield surfing tips and tricks that can help players avoid these problems. Before you dive into shield surfing, equip your shield and make sure you have a good place to start. Once you have a shield, you can use it to surf down hills, do tricks, and shoot arrows.

You can also try to speed down a steep mountain. However, if you run into an enemy during your surfing, your trip will be cut short. If you can manage to avoid a battle while you’re surfing, you can do a lot more.

Shield surfing in Breath of the Wild is a fun and exciting challenge. It can help you get to your destination quicker, but you should always be aware of how much shield durability you have left.

Another key tip is to never waste a powerful shield. Shields degrade quickly on rocky or flat surfaces, so it’s a good idea to take your time.
