Published on 07-May-2021
Spectacular moment caught on camera when several meter high waves are speeding up to 130 km inland through the Kampar River in Indonesia. The phenomenon, called "Bono", is feared by the locals to sink ships, as at full tide during the rainy season the waves can reach a height of 20 feet (6 meters) and a speed of up to 40 km/h. The wave also attracts surfers who attempt to surf the tsunami-like wave, but as the river is also inhabited by crocodiles the surfers need to be escorted by rescue boats!
