Yes, as the title says. We’re now going to present you a plot twist in the Counter-Strike world. One fine day, I was exploring the game and my friend invited me to surf. Since, I was new to this term, it made me a bit curious to know what is surfing (here) means. Nevertheless, for those who are new to this field and want to know about CS: GO, must click here. Continuing, I got confused when I saw the map. Surfing has been known since the launch of CS 1.6.
To know more about the person who invented surfing, click here. In this, a youtuber Nadeking has taken the interview of a person named James Mariowned. The person who has started the CS surfing maps. He’s orignal name is Charles Joyce. This has now become one of the most loved thing of the community. Now, even there are tournaments on ESL with a prize pool.
Surfing- How to do it?
While spectating, it seems easy. It is easy but you have to practice for a number of hours to be perfect at it. It’s been a misconception that it is sliding on slanting surfaces. But a person should be perfect in angles to break a map record. Therefore, this is one of the stress busters people use to release the frustration. To surf, you should hold a movement key when you are sliding on a slanting wall. For example, if the slanting surface is on your right side, hold the ‘A’ key.
Why is it preferred?
Surfing is preferred because it releases stress. It makes a person calm. Normally, when a person is drained off after a days’ long work they can try to beat highscores on surf maps. Usually, when you practice for around half of hour for 2-3 days, you can be perfect in it. Which says, you don’t need to practice for day and night or use any rocket science to achieve mastery in it, even the creator of surf maps wanted a community of calm and toxic-free people. As we can observe from the interview.
Ultimately, It all started with an observation but now has a dream to build a community to find solutions for everyone, to keep everyone happy and probably this is the most liked quality of the creator. If you are to be a part of this community then kudos to everyone because then there will be a new world. Keep gaming, keep surfing, keep supporting.
