Come watch Teen Wolf with us and learn how to van surf

If you frequent this website or our paper or our Facebook page or have encountered me in the past month, you likely already know that The Inlander is hosting a screening of Teen Wolf tomorrow night at the Bing Crosby Theater. Here are all the details.

What you might not know, however, is that this film invented a sport called van surfing. Essentially, all you need is a van (a delivery truck will do, if you find yourself vanless) upon which to stand while your unreliable friend drives through busy suburban streets. I'm not finding any hard statistics but it's almost impossible if the inclusion of van surfing in Teen Wolf didn't lead to the death of at least one impressionable teen in the 1980s.

Don't van surf. It's terribly illegal, not to mention tacky. And, just because Michael J. Fox does something, that doesn't mean you should. I mean, you wouldn't travel back in time just because of Back to the Future would you? Time travel is hella dangerous! Probably more dangerous than van surfing.

So, yeah, don't do this. Instead, watch videos of it and shake your head at the recklessness that was 1985 in America.

And yes, there are idiots who actually tried this.
