Although popular for its more competitive deathmatch and ranked game modes, CS:GO also hosts other options for those looking for a more pacifistic approach. One of the current popular options is the “surfing” mode, where players are challenged with moving different ramps at high speed, whilst retaining momentum to prevent falling to their death. If you’re looking to try this mode out, simply search for a surf server using the community server browser, or visit the community workshop to browse all of the different maps available.
If you’re a seasoned veteran, then you’ve at some point probably come across surf_beginner. Although not as popular with more experienced surfers compared to other maps, surf_beginner is a great place to start if you’re new to surfing. With easy-to-learn levels and a range of different difficulties to try out, you’ll be sure to become a master of surfing in no time with surf_beginner.
With a name as heavenly as surf_utopia_v3, it’s no surprise that this particular map is one of the most aesthetically pleasing out there. Created all the way back in 2013, the map features a unique blue, red and grey colour scheme. It also hosts a variety of different and exciting levels to try out, meaning both beginners and experienced players can enjoy the various stages this map has to offer!
Another iconic map within the surfing community is the brightly-coloured surf_kitsune. Featuring nine different levels to try out, and all hosting a different neon colour scheme, you’ll be sure to enjoy progressing through the different levels the map has to offer. You’ll also be timed for each level you complete, which means even if you’ve completed the map, you’ll be able to head back and try to beat your times for each stage!
Set within an underground mining facility, surf_mesa is certainly one of the more difficult surfing maps out there. Unlike most other surfing maps, surf_mesa doesn’t have any stages or checkpoints, which means falling off will put you right back at the start. This map is definitely not for beginners therefore, so prepare to be frustrated before attempting to complete surf_mesa!
