The Zambezi, the fourth longest river in Africa, stretches from Zambia to Mozambique supporting a huge range of wildlife, diverse ecosystems, and unique microclimates along the way. Tucked away in the ecological mass is a standing wave unlike any other.
The wave, perfect for surfing when it is working correctly, only encounters surfable conditions a few days a year. However, with a proposed dam threatening the flow of the river and the biodiversity throughout the entire system, many of the unique qualities of the river, including this incredible wave, may be under threat. Check out the video by Zigzag Media to learn more about the threat and a few surfers journey to surf this amazing wave in the video below. –ML
