Tidal Bore SUP Surfing in France

Tidal bores and standup paddling seem to be a perfect combination. With greater stability and control, standup paddleboards allow paddlers to ride tidal bores longer and farther than any other craft. From Alaska to Brazil, paddlers are getting stoked on these seemingly endless waves. In this latest example, the Teulade brothers have an epic time riding a mascaret–the French word for tidal bore–for several minutes. With paddlers lined up rail-to-rail, it becomes a survival of the fittest on this French river wave.
