Kayak Surfing Bore Tide in Alaska
Whitewater kayakers Chad Hults and James Russell set out April 4, 2014 to take on the bore tide. A bore tide is a phenomenon in which a tide that creates a wave goes against the current of a narrow body of water and few occur in North America. One such place is Turnagain Arm in Cook Inlet, Alaska. Each season, the bore tide brings kayakers, surfers, and paddle boarders to Southcentral Alaska, to ride the waves. The video is of a wonderful ride using a natural phenomenon in Anchorage's backyard.
