Would you dare to be on a surfing board and battle a tidal bore in Sarawak's Batang Lupar, famed for its crocodile-infested waters? Dare-devils should look no further then Sri Aman, 170km from Kuching. The tidal bore here, or "benak", could be a big tourism draw in which it could be known as a fantastic extreme sport.
So far only one man has dared to take up the challenge in battling the benak. He is Frenchman Antony Colas, a hardcore tidal surfer and author of the World Stormrider Guide, a guide book on the best new surfing locations worlwide.
This year, the event will be held on 6-8 April 2012 and you will seeing more action and hopefully we will seeing one of our own Malaysian surfer riding the waves in the river.
