Colin Whitbread and longtime Becker Surfboard rider, JJ Wessels recently made history when they conquered an epic wave on the Petitcodiac River in Moncton, New Brunswick. In all, they surfed over 20 miles up the river and rode a single wave for approximately 10 miles, setting a new North American record for longest wave ever surfed. To conquer this feat, Wessels got together with Jose Barahona to shape a surfboard that measured 11’3 x 23 ¾” x 3 ¾” (scroll to view images below), ensuring the board would make it through two and a half hours of monstrous waves and high tides.

The explanation for the miles of long, surf-able waves? Twice a day, at high tide, the Bay of Fundy spills back into the mouth of the Petitcodiac River against the current, creating a monstrous wave that shoots back up the river for miles. Referred to as a tidal bore, this phenomenon happens in only a few places on Earth. Back in the day, the tidal bore was so strong, that it would sweep boats away. To stop the flow, a dam was created in the 60s, turning the powerful river into a mellow stream. The tidal bore had all but disappeared until three years ago, when New Brunswick opened the flood gates, hoping to bring the river back. Now, with Whitbread and Wessels record-breaking ride in July, the Petitcodiac River has gained attention and surfers from all over the globe, suddenly making chilly Moncton a hot surf spot and local attraction.
