Oh my god this is amazing. I need to get a storm trooper suit for next Halloween and wear it surfing…

actually, every day it is only knee high waves I should wear the storm trooper outfit.

It’s not everyday you see stormtroopers surfing.

There was an unworldly sight in the Forest of Dean this morning (Friday 27th November) when a trio of Star Wars Stormtroopers surfed the spectacular Severn Bore. Key scenes from the upcoming Star Wars episode VII were filmed in nearby Puzzlewood and can be seen several times in the trailer.

Swapping the Death Star for surfboards, the elite soldiers of the Galactic Empire took to the waves to mark the release of the highly anticipated new Star Wars film and a new TV & Movie Trail.

The Forest of Dean’s atmospheric and picturesque location provided a natural stage for the film, which director J.J Abrams referenced in a thank you letter to all of the movie’s cast and crew.

My life revolves around surfing. It's my everything. In the water, nothing else matters except for me and the ocean. Since I love surfing and always watch videos, decided to make a site where I can share my favorites with you. Enjoy!
