Mother Nature is here to spank you silly.

Battle the world’s wildest waves, astride one of 15 licensed boards. Shredding to the surf anthems of Pollo Del Mar, The Aquamen & Los Straitjackets, try to tame the legendary tides of Hawaii, France, Australia, Japan, and California. Execute huge aerials, cutbacks, off the lips, or take a beating from Mother Nature herself.

Game Features:

  • 15 different surfboards from Gerry Lopez, Local Motion, Perason Arrow, Town & Country and Natural Art
  • Awesome surf anthems from The Aquamen, Pollo Del Mar and Los Straitjackets
  • Pull off mondo moves like cyclones, helicopters, left or right spins, off the lip, cutbacks and tube riders.

 

Enclosures

All copies of Surf Riders came with a Quick Reference Sheet. I didn’t even know this was in there, so if you bought your copy used, flip through the manual to see if it’s tucked in there. The Sex Wax (front and back) goes with the big box release below.

 

Variants

Probably the cheekiest variant in the entire PlayStation’s library. Certain copies of Surf Riders came with a larger box to hold a free sample of Mr Zogs Sex Wax. A roundish brick of wax that one uses on their real life surfboard. If you’re missing the Sex Wax but have the box, you’ll be annoyed by the fact that packed in version has a Surf Riders sticker on the back, meaning you couldn’t just buy an external one to complete your copy.

Trivia

  • A rather curious mystery. If one uses archive.org to go back to the game’s original web-site at playsurfriders.com, there is a choice in the flash menu that just reads “Code Word”. Clicking on it does nothing. The html can’t be parsed due to the use of Flash, and there’s nothing in the manual or on the packaging pointing to the use. Will have to play the game to see if there’s any clues there. If you know the answer, e-mail me!
