Bend Surf Scene 

It comes as no surprise being that Bend is Oregon’s top training ground for extreme athletes and an oasis for outdoor enthusiasts that our River Surf scene is shaping up nicely. On any given day amatuers are sharing the lineup with professional surfers and SUPers at the Bend Whitewater Park. Yesterday Mr. Pipeline himself Gerry Lopez made an appearance tearing up the standing wave impressively, especially for a guy who’s 67 years old. Bend is well on it’s way to becoming the River Surf Capitol of the West Coast! Check out this sweet drone video by of Gerry Lopez surfing the standing wave at the Bend Whitewater Park:
