So you thought you had to travel far distances to an Ocean to surf or to watch surfing. Well travel no more and come up to Cascade, Idaho and experience some of the best river surfing and surfers in the world.

The PRG’s, Boise Co-op and My Family Tradition Sauce & Rub Co would like to welcome international and national surfers to compete in our first ever River Surfing Competition. For all you landlocked surfers you will find a big glassy wave at Kelly’s in a town reminiscent of an old American Western movie. Picture a pristine and warm river (70-75 degrees) meandering through the town of Cascade, Idaho adjacent to green pasture land in the foreground surrounded by rugged snow capped mountains. Here what all the buzz is about as CNN wrote an article of the world’s newest emerging sport! http://www.cnn.com/2013/06/06/travel/urban-surfing-munich-china/
