the perfect wave in your neck of the woods
It started with a project that could change the world
Surf Anywhere was a born out of the need for the Alberta River Surfing Association (ARSA) to have a world class wave. This quest quickly turned into a project to improve the world. Because the Kananaskis river is dam operated and turns off at night we have the ideal location to test new wave designs and release that information with the world. From there our mission is to bring these waves to other river surfing communities around the world.
