In seven rounds, eight surfers are sent to specific trails they must complete only by clicking real hyperlinks. During each round a surfer drops out. If after 15 minutes, more than one surfer is still working to reach the goal, a rush to cat/gif/earth-images speeds things up. No keyboard, no Google, no copy/paste … just real hyperlinks!
These were the 7 rounds:

I made it to the final but I lost. I didn’t find a link to gettyimages.com, only to istockphoto.com
It was a lot of fun. Thanks to Olia Lialina, Dragan Espenschied and The Beautiful Zeros and Ugly Ones.
BTW, the soundtrack was awesome. Here’s the YouTube playlist.
