A California surfing enthusiast found a novel way to catch a wave after thunderstorms flooded the local streets.
Lukas Soelberg was captured on video as he surfed along the flooded streets of downtown Oceanside, California, on Thursday afternoon.
In the clips that have surfaced online, Soelberg, wearing what appears to be a hooded sweatshirt and shorts, can be seen carefully balancing as he rides a light-colored surfboard in the wake of the white van that’s towing him down the street.
