    Cool. I think I read about river surfing in Germany. It looks pretty wild and like a lot of fun.

    I had no idea you could do this! Very interesting!

    Wow. This sounds like so much fun. Who'd ever think you could surf a river??

    So interesting! My husband surfs but I don't know if he's ever surfed on a river. He also windsurfs and he has, in fact, windsurfed on a river up in Oregon, I believe. It's a completely different experience, he says, than being on the open water.

    I never would have thought of surfing in Montreal either, but it sounds like fun. Water sports are one of the reasons I got LASIK (so I don't have to worry about losing a contact). Unfortunately, I've only taken advantage of that once in two years. Right after my doctor cleared me to go swimming, I took a trip to Hawaii (already scheduled) and tried boogie boarding. Lots of fun!

    I asked my husband about this as I read because he's the type of person who would do something like this. Dang. I thought I would sound all cool, like I knew of this new sport that he didn't know about. not. He's all over it!

    I've seen some of the standing paddlers in Austin. They're picturesque — but I'm not sure I understand their appeal.

    I think I'd feel safer surfing in a river than the ocean, somehow! Interesting…

    I'd never heard of river surfing either, Melanie. Hilarious! Though I think I've seen people doing it, I guess I didn't know what is was called.

    Is the sport on offer closer to home? Russian River, maybe?

    Unfortunately, you have to have a really strong current and deep water to do it, and here in California most of our rivers are not up to the job. Although this year, with all the snowmelt, rivers are running high and fast an on a recent trip to the Merced river, I spotted one place I think would work. River surfers, any takers?
