Hopefully we will be getting a guest by Christopher a little later this week so watch for that.
Riding the Shubie Tidal Bore
Friend of the site, Christopher Lockyer put together a great little video of a recent trip riding the Shubie River tidal bore in Nova Scotia. If you have never heard of a tidal bore before, Wikipedia describes one as 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.”
It’s weird watching the video knowing that the waves are mainly formed from incoming tide. The action really gets going around the 2:40ish mark when the waves get steeper and back surfing gets started.
