Surf Spot: The Baan

Title : Paddle Boarder Surfs 20mph Tidal Bore In India

Description : Paddle Boarder Surfs 20mph Tidal Bore In India SUBSCRIBE: TWO intrepid paddle boarders become the first people to surf one of the world's most elusive waves. The tidal bore, nicknamed the Baan after the infamous German Autobahn motorway, only appears once a year in the Indian river of Hooghly, which is located between the city of Kolkata and the suburbs of Howrah. Tidal bores are exceptionally rare and occur during high sea tides when incoming tides travel two or three times faster than usual through narrow channels. Virtually unknown outside of India, locals believe the dangerous wave, which can reach speeds of up to 20 mph, is haunted by the ghosts of its many victims.
