Bore Tide on a paddle board

It must be spring in Anchorage, because surfing the bore tides of Turnagain Arm has returned. I believe this was filmed down by Girdwood, which is just south of Anchorage on the Seward Highway. The surfers were cruising in at 7mph, and the ride can last 40 minutes or so.

It’s pretty cool, but don’t get caught out on those mudflats.
