You can "Surf Anywhere" – even 1500m above sea level and 1000km away from the nearest ocean.
Surf Anywhere is the story of a small group of river surfing pioneers who have sculpted a world-class wave on the Kananaskis River, forty-five minutes outside of landlocked Calgary. At 5000ft above sea level, the Kananaskis River churns out 1000 cubic feet of water per second. Over the years Neil Egsgard and Jacob Quinlin, among others, have molded a standing wave called "The Mountain". They have not only built a wave, but also a river surfing community. The greater goal of their project is to create sustainable river surfing communities throughout the world.
On top of being a fascinating story of passion and obsession .. the story is also personal for the Director and Storyteller Desiree, who is also an accomplished surfer herself.
Just when you thought the big wave surfers were hard core, you need to witness people doing it in -10ºC weather .. & Having a Blast! Now THAT's Hard Core!
