Surfing Pikachu is a Pikachu with a surfboard. With this, they are able to wield the move Surf.

  • Surfing on a Pikachu in Yellow, Gold, Silver, and Crystal Versions will result in a different overworld sprite being used.
  • If a Pikachu uses Surf in Pokémon Stadium (Japanese), Pokémon Stadium (English), Pokémon Stadium 2, Pokémon Colosseum, Pokémon XD: Gale of Darkness, or Pokémon Battle Revolution, it will wield a pink surfboard.

  • In Pokémon Stadium (Japanese), if the player clears the Master Ball division of the L1-30 Division with a Pikachu in his or her party, the Pikachu can learn Surf.
  • In the non-Japanese versions of Pokémon Stadium (English), if the player clears the Master Ball division of the Round 2 Prime Cup with all Pokémon selected directly from a Game Pak, not saving the game during the challenge (continues are permitted), and ensures Pikachu participates in the final battle (the Pikachu can come from any Generation I game), they will be able to teach that Pikachu Surf.
  • In Pokémon Battle Revolution, after defeating Pokétopia Master Mysterial the player can download a Surfing Pikachu onto a Diamond, Pearl, Platinum, HeartGold, and SoulSilver game from the shop for free.

Ooh balloons :D
You copied and pasted everything from Bulbapedia, so you could at least put it as the source.
This answer is wrong.
@Crimson1, Yeah, I was in a rush, so I forgot, but I added it in now!

Believe it or not, it's real. There is an event pikachu with fly, surf, and a different move. I don't know when the event was started, but I'm pretty sure it's over now. Hopefully this answers your question. Hope I helped!(ish)
