Surfing in a Landlocked State

Montrose, CO - Despite living in a landlocked state, there are thrill seekers in Montrose who are surfing!

Montrose Kayak and Surf are hosting Demo Surf Nights throughout the summer.

It's a stationary sport that uses paddle boards to catch some river waves, and its also starting to catch waves among the locals.

The shop owners tell us they've had international tourists stop by to enjoy the surf on their turf.

"You have a wave that never goes away, it doesn't end on a beach so you can take long rides, you can have time to learn tricks, learn to carve and really progress your skill set", says Bill Glasscock the Co-Owner of the Montrose Kayak and Surf.

"We offer lessons here if anyone's interested in getting into learning proper form on down-river standup paddle boarding", says Camille Calladine the Assistant Manager for the shop.

The Demo Surf Night is held every Wednesday of the summer in the evenings from 6 to 8, and it's completely free at the Montrose Whitewater Park.

They do recommend to bring a few items such as non-cotton clothing, wetsuits, helmets, life jackets, and paddle boards.

If you don't own any of these items, the shop owners say they'll provide them but they're first-come-first-serve.

Children 10 and older can join in on the fun, but they'll need an adult to sign for them.
