River Surfing, Montreal, Quebec

Every Friday we feature an inspirational travel photo of a Canadian destination taken by one of our readers.

Photo by Pedro fait de la Photo

Why we chose it: This photo proves that surfers will catch waves wherever they can find them—on the Saint Lawrence River right in downtown Montreal, for instance. Whitewater kayakers also frequently tackle this standing wave, dubbed Habitat 67 for the adjacent famed housing complex. Kudos to the photographer on this epic action shot—and to the surfer for braving the northern waters!
