Surfing an Endless Wave on the Amazon River

By on

Indigenous people who live along the banks of the Amazon River in Brazil call this wave Pororoca, which means “big road”. It can be a huge wave, up to 13ft tall, that steams in from the Atlantic, offering an endless ride in a remote setting. It is pretty risky business to surf as well, snakes, piranhas are prevalent, as are fallen trees, debris and more in that chocolate coloured water. Surfer Serginho Laus walks us through the various nuances of this ridiculously fun-looking ride.
