Take A Cyber Tour Around The World's Largest Bores!
From Alaska to Australia...China to Brazil...Canada to France!!

In 1988 a US Geographical Survey recorded 67 localities worldwide with bores of varying magnitude! From these we have tried to compile information on all those that are (or have been) large enough to surf!
