Next time you're out on a chest to head high day and the wind switches a little bit sideshore, “ruining” the perfect oil glass that you were already surfing for several hours, consider just how lucky you really are. There are people in this world who take great pleasure in surfing absolute garbage. In the above clip you'll see locals of one of the finer breaks along the Colorado river, stoked out of their gourds on surfing ripples that would easily be rivalled by any crossing boat wake. I get the gimmicky appeal of trying this particular river wave once or twice, but the fact that they have a local known as “All Day Dave” seems a bit too much.
I know they say the best guy out there is the guy having the most fun, but…. come on! Seriously… could this be any less fun? No disrespect to the Colorado River locals. I understand you're trying to make lemonade here, but aren't there any nearby lakes that you could take a big wakemaster boat out onto, to kick up a wake that's at least triple the size of your beloved river wave?
Stoked that these guys are stoked, but for the rest of us, let's be happy with even the crappy days we have.
