Discounting the native Amazonians who have surfed the wave in canoes for a long time, pororoca surfing is still very much in it's infancy, yet evolving at a rapid pace. The network of channels and rivers that feed the Amazon basin give rise to plenty of opportunities for hunting down the pororoca, and this has led to the naming of breaks like Dangerous Channel and the Nest of the Pororoca.
The sheer power of the pororoca has been experienced many times with boats upturned as aninga palms are torn from the riverbanks. Huge logs of debris get tossed into the wave and have to be avoided, along with the large array of deadly predators: alligators, anacondas, piranhas and the, small but deadly candiru!
