Can you imagine paddling out to near freezing ocean waters, then waiting for a chunk of glacier to fall off and then getting up on your surfboard to ride it?!

I couldnít until I saw this video of people doing just that. Itís really dangerous, because the flying ice and debris could very easily cause severe injuries, so itís not recommended to anyone whoís not a surfing expert.

Yeah, I don't know why anyone would ever THINK of doing this, it's just beyond comprehension...

To me, that would be right up there with trying to catch a piggy back ride on the back of a grizzle bear. I would hate to see what these guys do for a little excitement.
