2008 Olympics look out; a new sport has hit the world! Concerts everywhere are inspiring athletes to “be passed overhead from person to person,” better known as crowd surfing. Generally, surfing crowds can only occur when the concert is jam packed with lots of hands ready to pass a body about without dropping the person, which could lead to serious injury. Not to be confused with regular surfing, crowd surfing requires no water, life jacket, or swimming suit. Some surf for entertainment, others for a conveniant way of travel. Many people agree that it can only be desribed as “life’s greatest pleasure,” but others fear that the dangers of crowd surfing outweigh the joy it brings. Discomforts such as being dropped, kicked, pinched, and tickled may occur. An interview with crowd-surfing legend, Megan H. follows.
