Hangzhou Surfing

Been planning a trip to Shanghai/Hangzhou next week and stumbled upon this amazing video. It was taken last summer in Qiantang River, Hangzhou, where the world’s largest tidal bore can be found.

The Qiantang River (钱塘江) was once called Zhejiang (浙江 or 折江) in ancient Chinese books, a legacy picked up by an emperor of Qing Dynasty to give name to the Province . The 415 miles long river originates from Anhui Province, winds through Zhejiang Province and then flows into China’s East Sea, 50 miles south of Yangtze.
