Improved Shieldsurfing [Fighter] Passing through the orcish horde to reach the squad of struggling soldiers, the paladin surfed on its shield down the mountain side.Prerequisites: Balance or Tumble 6 ranks, ShieldsurfingBenefit: While shieldsurfing, you don't lose your Dexterity bonus to AC, and you may zig-zag while moving down, with 30 feet (9 meters) of movement each round, but no more than 15 feet (4,5 meters) to each side. If you decide not to zig-zag, you may move right or left up to 30 feet per round, instead of the usual 15 ft.
You decrease the DC needed for Balance and Tumble checks for performing actions while shieldsurfing by 5. You may now reach a max speed equal to 8 times your land speed while shieldsurfig. You gain a +1 dodge bonus to AC and Reflex saves against attacks while shieldsurfing, +1 per each round in which you moved with the shield, up to +5.
You may now make a Balance or Tumble check, as a standard action, with DC 20 (already reduced) to slow down by your land speed each round. With a DC 30 (already reduced) you may stop altogether as a full-round action, but you still move half your current speed.
Special: A fighter may choose this feat as one of its fighter bonus feats.
