Dozens of surfers, SUPers, and kayakers participate in a long-standing tradition of riding the Gironde River tidal bore in France in a video posted on Facebook by the Surfing Federation of Costa Rica.
The original post said it’s the Pororoca tidal bore in the Amazon, but numerous outlets have identified it as the one near the wine region of Bordeaux in France.
It’s unclear who shot the video or how old it is, but it’s definitely getting people’s attention:
The waves are created by the leading edge of an incoming tide and make their way upriver. Unlike some tidal bores, in this case, if riders happen to fall off the leading wave, they have a chance to catch another.
