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.

Fox Sports has released a short documentary about the history of Mavericks, the infamous big wave surfing spot located at Half Moon Bay, California.

Jeff Clark is the key to Mavericks. He discovered the wave's potential in the 1970s and spent 15 years surfing it alone in the dark.

Decades later, after convincing friends to join him in the cold waters, Mavericks is the US capital of big wave surfing.
