Stormtroopers are busy guys, what will all of their armor-cleaning and their target-shooting classes. But sometimes these guys need a break. What do they do on vacation? It turns out the clones of Jango Fett like to see the world.

And they like to document their travels, too, with eye-popping photos on a fun blog, Surfing Trooper.

It turns out that "Surfing Trooper" is a character created by a woman named Rebecca and her boyfriend. According to, they're circumnavigating the globe on vacation. They've spent time in Indonesia, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji and the United States; currently they're in South America.

That's what they say, anyway. We suspect that Surfing Trooper is part of a mission to scout out planet Earth before Governor Tarkin brings in his Death Star.

Had these pictures just been of a guy in a trooper helmet, it wouldn't have been interesting. But these photos are gorgeous to look at, as well as a lot of fun to see. Check them out below.

We'd say "hats off" to Rebecca and Surfing Trooper ... but that would defeat the purpose.
