Surfing in the Rapids
Standing waves are a somewhat rare phenomenon in rivers. It is a type of rapid that cycles water in a circle, similar to a wave you would see at the beach. This is what allows the surfer to stay in the rapid and surf it!

@dillonk *looks at you* you're talking to someone who won't even swim in the ocean, lolz. I think I'll sit this one out, mmhh...
@dillonk you are telling me this is not that dangerous?! i am with @cheerfulcallie on this one! well maybe not to the extent of not swimming in the ocean but still! what if there are rocks along the rapids?
@cheerfulcallie Awh come on! @lillyann For the wave to actually form like that, the water needs to be relatively deep. It would be safe, especially if the surf board is attached to a leash :)
@dillonk i don't know ahahha i am still with @lillyann and @cheerfulcallie with this one!! but i guess only people who are daring enough would do this! well for me i don't think i will be able to do it but i would love to watch someone surfing like that!
@dillonk well i guess at least it sounds safer when you say there won’t be as much rocks! and well I guess all I could say is best of luck to those rapid surfers :)
