Surfing Squeakers used to be called Swimming Squeakers. However, local folklore states that someone left their bodyboard behind one evening. Then these fairies got ahold of it and haven’t stopped charging since.

They’ve certainly made a splash amongst younger ringleaders. Surfing Squeakers are especially adventurous and brave when compared to other mouse fairies. They’ll surf out to rescue swimmers (and non-swimmers) who find themselves in danger. They’ll even act when predators are nearby.

These fairies are only seen without their boards when someone steals it. Such cruel ghouls are said to be cursed to become these fairies in their next life. A Surfing Squeaker’s quiver tends to be customized with claw marks and paint made from berries. Some even lay leaves and flowers on their bodyboard before painting it, producing floral patterns when they’re removed.

Surfing Squeakers hate painting on canvases. However, they have been known to take up graffiti.

Surfing Squeakers teaching groms how to surf is a common theme in Redanian surfing movies, especially ones aimed at children. Another common theme for these types of movies is to have a Surfing Squeaker show up quimbies and wave hogs.
