Swiss surfers enjoy flood waves in the Thur River

Two Swiss surfers have ridden one of the biggest river waves ever seen in the Thur River. Static waves are special. They are rare; they don’t break all year round, and they often don’t deliver medium-sized faces. In other words, river waves do not offer that dynamic feeling found on ocean waves. Nevertheless, river waves are better than nothing, especially if you live in a landlocked country. The river surfing scene is growing every year. And creativity too. Did you know that there are specially designed surfboards for this kind of spots?

Ryota Matsushita wins the Murasaki Shonan Open 2014

Ryota Matsushita won the Murasaki Shonan Open 2014, at Kugenuma Beach, Kanagawa, Japan. Despite the small waves on offer (one-to-two foot surf), the ASP Japan Tour event got underway in beautiful weather conditions. The final heat had three Japanese surfers and one Australian rider. They’ve understood how hard it can be to perform tricks on small bumps. Fresh from a 9th place finish at the last event in Mexico, Connor O’Leary continued his good form to earn 563 ASP Qualifying Series ranking points and USD $4,000 prise-money, but most importantly the result saw him climb from 93rd to 63rd on the rankings.
