weirdo mud-SUP video from youtube!
« on: October 11, 2007, 02:09:53 PM »
check this out:



first it's got these guys'n'boards sliding down some river bank into a gross mud bog.  and then it cuts to vvvery far away you see this shimmering line of something coming at you and hell if i knew what it was until almost right on top of me.  and then you think it's all surfers but finally there's one or two paddles waving around in the air -- SUPers representing in a mud bore, yeah!

very strange, those french (at least i think they're french ...)

Could someone explain?  was this an incoming tide into an estuary? Pretty cool

Amazing!  Looks like fun, although I was initially perturbed by the phenomenon.  Thanks for sharing!
