Singapore — A man was seen using the water at the War Memorial Park pond in Singapore to surf.

“Saw this ang moh doing some surfboarding thing at the War Memorial Park multiple times as if it was his own private pool,” wrote one Malvin Fang on Facebook on Saturday (Jul 17).

He uploaded a video of the incident, which he noted happened about four times in a span of 20 minutes.

At the beginning of the video, the man was seen strapping his surfboarding gear at the edge of the pool.
