Dirtsurfing in Llantrissant forest

Tagged with:

Dirtsurfing is a combination of surfing, biking and mountain boarding. It's great fun but there is a downside - you have to walk back up any hill you surf down!

Simon Watmore sent in this clip of himself (yellow board), Andy Davies (yellow board) and Gavin James (green board) flying down the fire tracks in Llantrissant forest which have been opened up and maintained by a group of local mountain bikers.

Tim Davis filmed it from his own board whilst hanging on to a Sony HD camera!

Andy said "They're really quick runs and lots of fun!"

I had a few attempts at this last summer and I have to say, it is a lot of fun but hard work on the old thighs!

*If you've got video footage of any outdoor pursuits (surfing, mountain biking etc) that you'd like me to feature - drop me an email to wales.nature@bbc.co.uk

Remember - if you're editing clips for BBC, please don't add any music tracks unless they're your own compositions and you're happy for us to use them.
