Surfing Amazon's endless wave
Every year surfers flock to the jungle to surf a unique wave
There are some truly amazing natural phenomena in this world. Nature can deliver the most spectacular things known to humankind, and some of us can, and do, make the most out of these events.
Tidal bores are one of these magnificent phenomena. One in particular takes place in the Amazon rain forest, where every year, ocean water travels upstream. A force to be reckoned with, tidal bores are usually devastating and unforgiving. These masses of water will destroy everything in their path, but they do so in the form of waves. And as you can imagine, this can only be good news for surfers.
Despite being extremely dangerous, every year surfers flock to this part of the world to ride one of the most unique waves in the world.
