5 mile long surf ride

In the aptly-named Turnagain Arm in Cook Inlet, Alaska.

This ride is on a tidal bore, when conditions drive an incoming tide to collide with outgoing current and create actual surfable waves.

Scott Dickerson of SurfAlaska.net captured the image and shot video (both shown in this post) from a motorized paraglider. For more go to this post on his website.
