The Silver Surfer's Board allows Fortnite players to phase through structures in tight situations, making it an invaluable tool for escaping disadvantageous fights.

A video posted to the Fortnite Competitive subreddit Monday by u/MajorLeagueGMoney shows a player using the board inside a maze of player-built structures, instantly escaping the fight. While their opponent is disoriented, having lost track of them, the player then kills them.

The board's normal ability is simply to launch players into the air for quick repositioning. It's unclear if the ability to escape structures instantaneously is intentional on the part of Epic Games, but it significantly increases the utility of the board.

The Silver Surfer's Board arrived in Fortnite in Chapter 2 Season 4 as one of several Marvel character-themed items.
