Thirty surfers took advantage of a bizarre tidal phenomenon in the West country, as they rode a single wave the wrong way up the River Severn.

Surfers are always looking for opportunities to ride the waves, and some were lucky enough to take advantage of a single wave going the wrong way up the River Severn. A Wetsuit Centre spokesperson responds to the story.

Thirty surfers took advantage of a bizarre tidal phenomenon in the West country, as they rode a single wave the wrong way up the River Severn. The weird wave is called the Severn Bore, formed in a narrow channel as the tide rises. At some point the wave moves away from the mouth and towards its source, creating a great opportunity for surfers.

The event occurs around twelve times a year and this one was the biggest yet, reaching a height of 10.1 metres. Surfers could be seen running from their cars to get in on the action, as large crowds watched and applauded. Even kayakers managed to get involved, paddling to stay with the wave all the way to the top.

Wetsuit Centre, a leading provider of wetsuits and surfboards across the UK, takes a keen interest in stories such as this. A spokesperson provided this statement: “Surfers always manage to find ways to take advantage of a good wave, and by riding the Severn Bore they can now say they’ve surfed the wrong way up the longest river in the country.

“Despite the icy conditions a large crowd turned out to see the surfers in action, and I’m sure a good day was had by all. Due to the cold temperatures it goes without saying that the surfers needed high quality wetsuits to keep them going. If you’re planning on finding a good surf spot in England then a wetsuit from Wetsuit Centre will stand you in good stead, and we only stock the finest products at the very best prices.”
