Did you know river surfing is actually a thing? Not all surfers are fortunate enough to live on the coast, so new and innovative ways to ride a wave have been invented. Wyoming die-hard surfers have come up with a solution to satisfy their salt water craving and it’s called river surfing. These surfers full suit up and take the plunge into the chilling 59 degree Jackson River. The pressure from the river’s fast moving current push against little slopes along the bottom, which create the perfect stationary wave. No waves are no longer an excuse! These inland soul surfers have proved that when there is a will, there is a way.
