A formulation of nonlinear magnetohydrodynamics with surface currents and plasma flow on the basis of a Hamilton principle is presented. In particular, transition conditions containing contributions from the plasma flow are obtained for the first time. The formulation is also applied to the linearised theory around static equilibria. It yields the well-known energy principle.
