River Surfing

OPB | July 17, 2008 1:30 p.m.

Elijah Mack of Eugene is a pioneer of river surfing, the newest extreme sport to hit Oregon. Founder of the World River Surfing Association, he says this new take on surfing brings a dimension of accessibility to the sport, since you no longer need to live near an ocean to jump on a board and ride the waves. Watch Elijah in action, surfing on the McKenzie River.
