Puzzle elements


When you enter the puzzle, there is a big room where you find a rail drone and a connector. The rail drone is on a path with a pressure plate and a fan without the blades. To the right is a red emitter. In front of you are three rooms. The first room on the left is blocked off with a blue door which is connected to a blue receiver. In that room, is a hexahedron. The second room in the middle is blocked off by a grate, and has a blue emitter. The third room, the one on the right, is blocked off by another blue wall connected to a blue receiver. Inside the room is another connector and a detached fan blade. Behind a half-wall is another blue receiver, which controls access to the progress wheel.

Since the name of the puzzle is Surfing, you will have to keep some equipment on a moving surfboard. Like a surfboard, you may have to "ride the waves".

If you're having trouble getting started:
