Getting Barreled In An Indonesian River

Ripcurl published this incredible footage from their highly anticipated video, Seven Ghosts, which showcases a handful of surfers riding a tidal bore occurring on a river in Indonesia.

tidal bore “is a tidal phenomenon in which the leading edge of the incoming tide forms a wave (or waves) of water that travel up a river or narrow bay against the direction of the river or bay’s current.”

About Seven Ghosts, from Ripcurl:

When the first pulses of the tidal bore showed, Bruno Santos (BRA), Dean Brady (AUS), Tyler Larronde (FRA), Oney Anwar (IND) and original Searcher Tom Curren (USA) were there to greet the chocolate barrels of the Seven Ghosts. Witness the greatest river bore tubes ever surfed.
