One-Button Racing Mechanic:
Press the right arrow to accelerate, release to brake. If you release the gaz on a wave, you'll stick to it. If you keep the gaz pressed, you'll jump off the waves. Releasing the gaz while in the air will make you fall faster.
Obstacles and Power-Ups:
If air drag makes staying on water quicker, sometimes it's best to jump. It could be for grabbing a power-up, avoiding an obstacle or a tricky set of waves.
Fighting with opponent brings a whole new dimension to the game. It not only adds action, but also tactical aspects, which quickly becomes a key for victory.

Ratings and Reviews
Simple and fun
Simple, fun, easy to learn and play. Nice retro graphics and music. It has crashed on me, so the developer has a little more work to do on it.
Great game..Lots of fun ..But it needs an update patch to stop an occasional crash bug.
