Mario surfing on Ray
“Are you a surfer too? Oh, but this is your first time ray surfing, right? Well then, let me show you the ropes.”
Coach, Super Mario Galaxy

Ray surfing is one of two minigames from Super Mario Galaxy, the other one being Bob-omb Blasting. Ray surfing appears in two galaxies, Loopdeeloop Galaxy and Loopdeeswoop Galaxy. In the Loopdeeloop Galaxy, the player is taught how to ray surf by Coach. After he collects the galaxy's Power Star, Mario or Luigi (depending on who is being played) is considered a champion surfer. In both galaxies, the player must surf on Ray, using it as a surf board to traverse a course made up of water.


The player must point the Wii Remote at the screen and twist it to the left or the right to go in said directions. The A Button is to accelerate and flicking the remote allows Mario and Ray to jump. Turning too much will make Ray fall of the stage, resulting in losing a life.
