Surf the Dirt

Dirtsurfing is huge.

It's even big here and here in Portugal.

You better beleive it, baby.

Dirtsurfing is riding around on a two-wheeled aluminium frame at 80km/h, over taking cars, riding 3 inches above the tarmac and dirt-paths carved out by bad weather... and feeling the wind... oh the wind...

I took up dirtsurfing about a year ago when Jonnydirt introduced me to this wild world.

It is such a rush... huge amount of adrenaline. I guess I get 95% of the rush thinking about whether my brakes will fail...

(Yes... we do have brakes. Whether we use them or not is debatable)
