River Surfing


Forum Spotlight

Surf Anywhere

Surf Anywhere started with a project that could change the world. It was born out of the need for the Alberta River Surfing Association (ARSA) to have world class waves. Their selfish quest quickly turned into a project to improve the world. Because the Kananaskis River dam operated and turns off at night we have the ideal location to test new wave designs and release information with the world. From there their mission is to make building these waves in other river surfing communities around the world.

Please help support this great project by donating what you can. Thank-you
