Gerry Lopez Surfs Pumping Oregon River Wave

Gerry Lopez Surfs Pumping Oregon River Wave

When legendary Hawaiian surfer and shaper Gerry Lopez does something, it usually ends up being awesome. Such is the case in the latest video of Gerry river surfing near his home in Bend, Oregon. The 67-year-old looks as fit as ever, carving this perfect standing wave with his signature ease and flow. Bend’s endless wave looks an ideal fit for SUP surfing, a pastime at which Mr. Lopez is no slouch, but the man who made a name for himself tube-riding in Hawaii (“Mr. Pipeline”…heard of him?) opts to stick to his tried and true shortboard for this session.
