Video: Ben Gravy Surfs All 50 States

Some states are better than others for surfing. Nevertheless, surfer Ben Gravy decided that he would catch a wave in all fifty, and embarked on an epic journey to make it happen. Have you ever heard of anyone surfing in Kansas? We hadn't, at least until we saw this video. While we won't spoil the surprise, it's safe to say that Gravy needed to get creative to achieve his lofty goal in the flatter states.

Surfing the Midwest seems like a bit of a chore, since subpar river-surfing just doesn't really do it for us. However, the video's clear highlight is Gravy's final state: Alaska. Tidal bores can produce some of the longest, most scenic rides in surfing, so we're glad Gravy found one on his journey.

Incredible result. I admire the skill of this man. Hopefully, there are more achievements for surfing in this world. There are interesting locations in Europe and on the site https://大吉カジノ.jp/ if there is a desire to take a break from surfing. Good luck to everyone.

This Hydrofoiler Outlasts Surfers on Massive Tidal Bore

Occasionally, a few lucky rivers in the world experience a scenario in which a large wave of water barrels upstream against the natural current. This rare phenomenon is known as a tidal bore, and sometimes these waves can get moving up to 25 miles per hour. As you've probably guessed, they’re fun to catch a ride on. Most people surf them, but it turns out hydrofoiling does the trick too. In fact, it might be a better vehicle of choice for maximizing the wave. Just watch as hydrofoiler

The Wedge is scary on a small day. And on a big day? Absolutely terrifying. However, that doesn't seem to deter the dozens of boogie boarders and surfers who risk life and limb there on a regular basis. Perhaps the convenience of an in-town wave at Newport Beach is enough to overpower their instincts of self-preservation, or maybe they like the crowds which gather to watch people get mauled.

Cigarette butts seem to be everywhere. With an estimated 4.5 TRILLION cigarettes littered every year, it’s no surprise we come across them so frequently. This isn’t good news for aquatic life as the chemicals found in cigarette butts are toxic to fish and microorganisms. Cigarette butts also contain cellulose acetate, a form of plastic. That means they never fully decompose. Yikes. RELATED: 12-Year-Old Sierra Kerr is a Surfing Powerhouse So why do so many people toss them on the ground
