Fans of SSX/ Tony Hawks/ Skate type games are bound to be please with today’s announcement that Surf World Series will be coming to Xbox One on August 31st.

Certainly leaning towards the budget end of the spectrum graphics wise it’ll be interesting to see how this performs once you’re on the crest of a wave.  To that end, Climax Studios have today released a free demo.

Surf World Series celebrates the thrill of pure arcade-style surfing, where players will be able to:

  • Ride monster waves at 5 of the world’s most iconic shorelines, from the infamous Bell’s Beach, Australia, to the extreme waves at Waimea Bay, Hawaii.

  • Become masters of the waves, learning increasingly difficult tricks along the way, from nailing kickflips and cutbacks, to landing massive aerials and navigating treacherous tubes.

  • Trick their way through 44 single player challenges, or carve up the competition online against 15 other players across 3 different online game modes.

  • Rank up and unlock thousands of customisation options to stamp their own style on their journey to become a surf legend.

  • Get that real surfing feel thanks to the expert input and support from renowned UK surfer Tom Lowe
