Nobody's ever heard of the POROROCA? I suggest you guys read the pororoca article and then include the "fourth" way of river surfing into this article.

It's in there. It's a tidal bore. It's the local name for the Amazonian bore and I've included a great link to a photo essay on surfing it. Also, please sign your talk page posts. Shawn in Montreal 15:19, 26 March 2007 (UTC)
I think the first sentence isn't right, in the wikilinkslinks in the german wiki about riverurfing, it's said that river surfing was made at river Isar since 1972 and even championships where held in munich 1975. -- Charly Steinbeisser 07:38, 11 July 2007 (UTC)

Flow Statement[edit]

The article says "the flow velocity of the icy water is about 5 meters at a rate of 20 tons per second". Units for flow should be cubic metres per second or megalitres per day. What is shown in the topic is a bit confusing. Can the proper flow in cumecs be stated and then if you want to put it into tons per second then add this after? Note tons can be confused between the metric and imperial units. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:52, 15 October 2016 (UTC)
