I haven’t discovered it until today but The Hurricane Riders have a facebook site. A videoclip, learning to backsurf… was publicized there yesterday. I really enjoy watching these kayakers skills. And the production of the videos is also good.
Hurricane riders are a group of long boat paddlers based in Deep Cove, BC, Canada. They do some really cool kayaking in the Skookumchuck Narrows in BC. Current speeds can exceed 16 knots (30 km/h). We do not have those tidal currents in Sweden. In Norway is an even stronger tidal current located, Saltstraumen, with water speeds reaching 20 knots (about 37 km/h). I haven’n seen any video clip from Saltstraumen. So for some inspiriation here is a great clip from the HCR.
