Hang Ten

Jessie loves going up and down the 'travelators' at shopping centres.  But why does she stand side-on with her arms out?  Because she is surfing, of course.


She jumps onto the travelator and then lies down on her tummy.  I am sure that people think she's fallen and she can't get up, but in fact she is lying down on her imaginary shortboard, paddling her arms until she gets out to where the "waves" are.

Then all of a sudden, she snaps into a side-on standing position, arms held out for balance.  She stays in that position, occasionally swaying and saying, "Woo-oo" until we are finished, then she hops off the travelator and walks off through the shopping centre with her "board" under her arm.

too funny and I wish I could see this.

At least she'll be in practice for the summer!

Now I feel we need video evidence of this! How hilarious!

I'd love to see that. What a funny idea she has stuck in her head!

I'm just stuck on the concept of a stairless escalator. We do not have such things here in the States (at least that I've ever encountered, and I'm fairly well traveled). We have escalators and moving walkways, but no combination of the two. Fascinating!

And yes please to the video of Surfer Chick in action!

Heather is right, I haven't seen these in the states either.
Here you would have to be careful that anything hanging doesn't get caught in joints/steps because you can get hurt badly...

LOL! Now that is one creative kid.
