Surfboards are used in Jasper

Surfing and Surf-boarding or Paddle Boarding, a newer sport in Jasper. Surfers has to have thick wet suits to be safe in the frigid waters in Jasper National Park rivers. The glacial fed waters are temperature dependant on the sun, so when we have hot weather, the flow of the water increases volume and intensity. The boards used here are only for the rivers. the lake is nice if you just want to practice balance on the water.
