Here’s Nintendo’s rundown of Shield Surfing:
Greetings everyone! When you think of using a shield, what’s the first thing that comes to your mind?
You’re probably thinking “blocking attacks,” but your trusty shield doesn’t have to be a one-trick pony! With shield out, press the X button to jump and then the A button to jump in the middle of it to protect the surfer down the ramp.
But that’s not all – combining a shield with a buggie will give you the fun of surfing with a shield, as well as a speed boost by being on the wheels! Rumor has it that you can also incorporate a frozen ingredient for a smoother ride…
As mentioned earlier, Nintendo released its latest update to Tears of the Kingdom earlier this week, bumping the title up to version 1.2.1. You can see all the patch details in the following post:
