By far this is the best video we have seen all week, well actually 3 in total, but the video below takes place on the island of Kauai in Hawaii. The river used to by the locals is the Waimea River, which is about 12 miles long, making it one of the largest rivers in the whole state of Hawaii. The locals will dig out the sand where the river meets the shorepound, and BAM, instant wave shredding. It is pretty amazing how quickly and powerful the water gets, carving out it’s own natural pipe line. Of course anything as awesome and cool as this comes controversy. A lot of locals and environmentalist in the area believe it is causing great damage to the beaches, the process is called human contributed erosion. But others believe this is a natural process that happens all the time when the hide tide hits and waters are too high, so they are pretty much just speeding up the process just a bit. Either way I want to grab a boogie board and be there now, enjoy the videos and photography.
