A couple of weeks ago Aaron Lyttle and Ben Fontaine decided to take their boardrideing skills to new levels hooking up to the Nile Street bridge during heavy flooding and catching a few stationary waves!! Rumour has it that on one wipeout Aaron got tumbled down the rocks for a good 100 metres or so , hence the helmets.
Looks like heaps of fun and im sure there are heaps of spots where this could be done yet keep in mind the extreme dangers of a flooding river and always prepare yourself even anchoring a rescue line downstream as a backup.
