Surfing the Tidal Bore on the Peticodiac

A surfer rides the tidal bore on a warm summer day. When all the forces of nature are in a perfect alignment  the tidal bore can be surfed and lately more and more surfers are taking the long slow ride up the river to surf on the bore. This picture was taken along the Riverside Park trail in Riverview just across the bridge from Moncton. When surfers sail past there is often a cheer from the crowds that sometimes gather along the banks of the river. The surfers know what they are doing and have a partner with them who follows along on the shore by bike or in a vehicle as the surfer never knows how far their ride will last!
