Sternwheel surfing: Dan Gavere has no problems with crowds

Dan Gavere has ridden the wake of a sternwheeler in the Columbia River Gorge, somewhere between Oregon and Washington.

When you don't have waves, you have to invent them. There are currently many options. You can build your own artificial wave pool or you can hit the nearest river wave.

A standup paddleboard enthusiast has surfed the wake of beautiful sternwheeler, as the river boat made his journey through the Columbia River Gorge, between Oregon and Washington.

The quality of the wave is impressive. Although it may seem an endless ride, the wake produced by the giant boat is not always stable. So if you're the next customer, prepare for several unsuccessful attempts.

Dan Gavere has been "sternwheel surfing", at least, since 2011. What more can be invented, when it comes to wave riding?
