Shield Surf - Conditions & Situations

Use It In The Desert & In The Snow

Shield Surfing drains Shield durability when done on grasslands and rocks, but this does not happen when it is used in the desert or on snow. Since moving over deserts and snow is slower without Sand/Snow Boots, Shield Surfing will allow you to move quickly in this area.

You Need An Incline To Move

To accelerate while Shield Surfing, you need to be on a downhill slope, even if it's just a small one. You will not to be able to move forward on a completely flat or uphill slope, so find a slight incline in the desert or on snow to gain speed while moving forward.
