Surf Montreal

I'm not hardcore enough to get into this kind of surf! But I love that there are people out there, in this case Montreal, who are so passionate about surfing that even a strong current and chilly temperatures won't deter them.
Standing up on a surfboard can be a difficult enough challenge, but this variety of surfing requires tenacity upon first entering the water, keeping with the correct flow of the current in order to position yourself in the heart of the rapids. Beginners can opt for the assistance of a rope, a sure-fire way to keep from missing the surf and ending up a mile downstream.

Here's a link to a NY Times article about this: http://travel.nytimes.com/2009/07/10/travel/escapes/10Riversurf.html?scp=1&sq=surf%20montreal&st=cse. Also, there is plenty of good river surfing right here on the Potomac - mostly in kayaks, in various spots at various river levels from just below Great Falls down to just below Old Angler's Inn. Check out Jim and Monique's site http://www.potomacpaddlers.com/ - follow the links to "Squirt Guide", "Playspots", "Photos", and "Location Photos". There are plenty of photos of surfing and other paddling hijinks just a few miles up the river from DC.
