Many of us love to surf but live too far from the ocean for daily sessions. The alternative is to take advantage of what you do have. Here in Seattle I surf tug, freighter and windwaves. Others further inland surf behind power boats. Starboard paddler Dan Gavere discoved sternwheeler surfing last summer near his home on the Columbia River in Hood River, Oregon. His video of doing this more or less went viral from a SUP fan perspective..
