There are waves all over the world and they are formed in many different ways. Across oceans, in rivers, tidal flows and boat wakes. They all add a different feel for the rider and come in different sizes. But this has to be one of the biggest tidal race SUP waves we’ve seen. Spencer Lacy has set the bar high with this one. If you have seen a bigger tidal race or river wave SUPed then let us know, or is this it?
“The legendary Skookumchuck rapids are on the Sunshine Coast in British Columbia. They are not on a river. The current that flows through the narrows changes on schedule with the moon. During the peak flow, a monstrous standing wave forms. I surfed this wave on my stand up paddle board at 2015’s peak flow and it was the best paddling experience of my life. -Spencer Lacy “
