The Surfing Trooper Tumblr is a unique blog that showcases some of Darth Vader's army taking a relaxing vacation.

The blog, which doesn't credit anyone in particular for each shot, is devoted to the white masked men. The blog simply states, "The Surfing Trooper is taking a vacation from the Empire to surf around our world. Last he was seen in the waves of Fiji but what will be his next destinations?"

The Surfing Trooper is a clever photo series that prefers to stay anonymous, which adds to readers' intrigue to find out who is hiding behind the mask.

Implications - Pop culture franchises that have a cult following such as Star Wars cause loyal fans to incorporate the characters into their lives. This allows them to escape their life, especially if it is hectic. Stats for Sunbathing Sci-Fi Fighters Trending: Older & Buzzing
