Quickly finding a pair of skis in this tropical optical illusion says a lot about the slopes of your mind.
A busy beach scene with red lounge chairs, palm trees, umbrellas, dolphins and an airplane features sporty winter gear tucked away in plain sight like that of a Where’s Walter illustration.
If you’re smart enough to find the skis in 28 seconds or less, you’ll become a “record holder,” according to The Sun.

But be warned: A number of crabs and starfish have been inserted into the sand to make the illusion more difficult to solve, the outlet reported.
Okay, get your stopwatch ready and – go!
Having trouble? You’re not alone. The skis are in the lower left of the photo and are camouflaged by blending them with a chair back.
Optical illusions like these are a fun distraction, but they can also have scientific value for medical professionals. They can help researchers shed light on the inner workings of the human mind — and how it responds to its surroundings.
“We usually take perception for granted and rarely think about the hard work that underlies everyday tasks, such as seeing a cup of coffee in front of us,” says Dr. Gustav Kuhn, a psychologist and human cognition expert at Goldsmiths University in London, previously told The Sun about how important illusions are to our understanding of brain function.
The confusing illusion joins a long list of optical tricks that confuse puzzle players.
