I've been looking for this for a long time.

That's the rules for the Waverider (i.e. surfer) class from Teddy C. Ryan III's Exotic Characters & Worlds (1983). Other classes represented include the Ninja, Ryan's version of the Techno from Arduin, and a Time Traveller class. Speaking of Arduin, page 32 of Exotic Characters & Worlds includes a crit chart derived from the glorious Arduin chart, but with a few tweaks, such as a "BODY/split in twain" result. In true Arduin style, this both kills you instantly and does 20-50 hit points of damage. Sadly, my two favorite results, buttocks torn off, and tripping over your own spilt entrails, have been removed from this version.

  4. I'm reminded of an old Different Worlds article detailing the Runequest cult of "Indlas Somer" (or something like that) who was pretty much the god of surfing and beach parties. Very tongue in cheek, but they played it straight enough that it was actually usable if you wanted some Beach Blanket Bingo mixed in with your broos. :)
