The rumors are true–Walter White has taken up surfing as a new means for moving meth. Officials in Tijuana discovered an electric surfboard washed up on shore on June 17, containing twenty pounds of meth, a street value of $100,000.

When officials broke into the hollowed-out board, they found at least 22 plastic containers labeled "roca," which is Spanish for rock. Unfortunately, whoever sent the board off on its journey didn't do a great job of sealing the expensive cargo, and water had seeped in to fry the eight batteries that were connected to a small turbine engine, according to KVAL.com.
Maybe it would have worked out better for the smugglers if they had skipped the electric power and had someone teach them how to surf.
