Surfing is one of the world’s iconic extreme sports – here at Climax Studios, we’ve captured the intensity of the surging waves and killer tricks and pulled them into the world of gaming with Surf World Series.
We’re bringing together 5 of the world’s most infamous surfing destinations, including Bells Beach, Australia and Waimea Bay, Hawaii, combining them with a unique selection of original tricks and gear – arcade style. Surf World Series is all about honing and testing your skills against 45 single player challenges designed to push you to the limit, and carving up the competition in online tournaments against up to 15 other surfers across three multiplayer modes.
As developers, our goal was to capture the vibes that make surfing culture what it is – we amped up the intensity with powerful oceans, stunning backdrops and simple arcade gameplay. Surf World Series is easy to get into, but pulling off epic stunts and new school tricks makes it deceptively difficult to master. It takes timing, precision, and most of all, the drive to take on treacherous tubes and monster waves, or dominate the competition online.
With tens of thousands of customisations, in Surf World Series you’ll have the freedom to design your own slick style and stand out from the crowd with your very own signature surfer. As you build up your skillset, performing new tricks and ranking up, you’ll unlock countless classic and original designs, with everything from wetsuits, boards, patterns and more.
The wave system in Surf World Series was custom built to not only create a wave that looks and feels stellar, but also to have the swell behave as naturally as possible. You’ll feel the current pull against your board as you battle to stay balanced, stick the landing on massive aerials and ride out the heaviest waves. Without your toes on the sand, it doesn’t get much closer to the authentic surf experience than this.
