But now it's one of the key disciplines for cyber sports and of course of the most favorite games for the masses ever! This time, the developers had a tough task ahead: after the not very warm acceptation of Source, they didn't want to change the gameplay so drastically anymore.

Virtual maps of CS:GO can be made by anyone… OK, anyone with the necessary skills. And many guys from the gaming community try to create something new and interesting. Some of the community-made maps keep the usual game rules – such locations may even become official CS:GO maps. Other maps are like a game inside the game. They modify the gameplay and offer unusual adventures.
Surf CSGO – is one of such modifications inside of custom maps.

The art of CS GO surfing!
As with the real parkour, rules in CS:GO surfing are super simple – overcome obstacles, jump over gaps, try not to fall, and reach the finish.
There is always a ramp on CS GO surf maps – it’s an inclined surface, a substitute for waves, a necessary thing to move in the CS:GO virtuality. When a game character jumps onto the ramp, they begin sliding. To continue this movement, you have to act in a particular way.
Here is the tutorial on how to surf CSGO:
- Jump on the ramp.
- Press A or D to remain on the surface. The rule here is – move left (A) if you are on the right side of the ramp, and right (D) if you are on the left side. So, try to keep close to the ramp’s center, like on the “scheme” D/A. These are your essential surf CSGO commands.
- Always point the crosshair in the direction of your CS GO surf. The character moves wherever you direct him.
- Speed-up by moving slightly to the ramp’s top and then moving downwards. Use the mouse for this.
- Sometimes you will need to turn – use both mouse movement and the “A-D” keys. These actions should be synchronized, so point the mouse cursor left while pressing A, and right while pressing D.
- Don’t press the “W-S” buttons – this spoils the CSGO surfing.

Mastering the art of surfing may take some time, but with the internal motivation, you will develop this skill easily. High levels of fun are quite a motivation, aren’t they? And it is also quite a show – you won’t find the like even in professional CS:GO Esports tournaments.
Surf Skill and Surf Combat
Becoming a deft CS:GO surfer may be just the beginning of your way to perfection. Will be you good enough in this art to battle opponents on such surfing maps?
CSGO Surf maps may be divided into these groups:
- Surf Skill – surf to reach the finish;
- Surf Combat – surf with the usual CS:GO shooting. Usually, battles take place on various areas between surfing sections.
These names aren’t official, so you may not find them in map descriptions. Just be attentive at the stage of choosing the location and you will know what to do on a particular map.
Let’s suppose you are a practical person and having fun is not enough reason for you to do something. We can easily find decent motivations for you practicing surfing:
- After mastering surfing, you’ll be defter in controlling your character in normal locations.
- After mastering shooting at high speed in surfing matches, you’ll be much more accurate and effective in your matchmaking sessions.

Ever wanted to become a pro surfer? Learn all the basics in this little guide. If you wan’t to become pro there is a long guide below.
Basics – For beginners
Find a surf server. If there’s none around when you look, download the maps yourself and load a LAN server. Practicing by yourself is always a good way to start.
NOTE: make sure you put settings like this:

To surf in a straight line: strafe (a or d keys) into the side of the ramp (those things that float in the air), strafing right if you’re on the left side, strafing left if you’re on the right side. Think about this diagram: D/A. Never press the back or forwards key while surfing because the forward key will make you slide off (more on the back key, s, later). Keep the mouse pointed in the direction you want to travel, the pitch of your cross hair doesn’t matter, just don’t look left or right if you want to go in a straight line.
To turn: when you are in the air strafe in the direction you want to turn, left or right, while smoothly changing your direction with the mouse in a centripetal fashion towards that direction. When your velocity is in the desired direction, stop strafing. As soon as you hit the new ramp strafe into the side of it again.
To pick up speed: start at the top of a ramp and move downwards. Make sure you do not move the mouse around too much when you are on a surf ramp then you will lose speed causing you to fall off when you get to the end or when you are surfing.
To ensure you don’t lose speed when landing on a new surf: try to reduce the amount of force that your z-axis receives when landing. Do this by trying as best as possible to be looking and moving in the same direction as the surf when you hit it.
To get maximum distance when launching off a surf: try to be at the highest point you can get without losing speed. All surfs have different points which give the maximum distance when launch from, according to how they are carved.
To stop in mid-air: e.g. to land on a certain point, just press backwards (s), you will immediately stop and fall down . You will always fall exactly vertically (though you can strafe to reposition yourself while in the air), so if you look straight down you see the exact point of landing where your cross hair is. This is mostly needed above “teleportation-panels” or “landing-panels” (mostly with a water surface so you can land on it from high above).
To get faster you can start from the top of ramp then head down to bottom and up to middle again for best result…Just go up and down, like a wave.
When it is necessarily to gain lots of air very quickly, (Ex. To fly through the green loop on surf_10x_final) you must, at the VERY end of a ramp, move your mouse side to side fairly quickly while pointing in the direction (upward at some angle) that you want to fly. This can be very difficult to master but is very useful.
Landing (extra): When you leave a ramp and have to turn in mid air to land on the next ramp, a good way to gain good speed is to land near the top of the ramp holding away from the the ramp. Then hold onto to the ramp with the correct key. This doesn’t make much sense, but go try and you’ll get extra speed. Surfing is hard to describe, its best to just go learn. Just practice holding away from the ramp on bits where you enough speed to reduce friction and lost speed increase speed. I think a good map to go learn on is surf_legends as it has some nice ramps, make sure its a Death-match though. I’m a speed surfer and will race anyone who’s up for a challenge.
