Stormtroopers Catch A Wave And They're Sitting On Top Of The Galaxy

Cowabunga, “Star Wars.”

Watch surfers dressed as Stormtroopers ride a river surge in England called the Severn Bore.

While the tidal break shown during Friday’s stunt in the Forest of Dean isn’t exactly the Banzai Pipeline, it’s still nice to see the Galactic Empire’s elite troops take a break from combat before “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” opens.

Parts of the movie were filmed in nearby Puzzlewood, SWNS noted in its YouTube description.

Wouldn’t it be cool if the fate of the galaxy was decided by a surf-off?
