When an adventurous person thinks of Canada, surfing will be the first thing that comes to the mind of the person. In Montreal, it is possible for you to surf the continuous waves, especially on the Saint Lawrence River. The river is known for the strong currents and the whitewater rapids. In fact, it is a favorite spot to carry out activities such as rafting and kayaking. This river in Montreal is one of the few rivers in the world that features standing waves that are large enough to use a surfboard to ride. The river waves are produced by huge volumes of water that flows over rocks. This produces large waves that are suitable for convenient surfing.
Such large standing waves let the surfers float into the wave and ride with the flow of water as long as they want unlike as in the ocean waves. The highlight of the Saint Lawrence River is the Habitat 67 wave that is a larger and faster one located behind a well-known building with that name. There is no denying of the fact that river surfing is challenging, but you need to take practice to maneuver the same into position carefully. So, next time you visit Montreal, do not miss to experience the river surfing adventure.
