Past floods destroyed the Ghostrider wave, north of Fernie, and since then the concept of having a permanent wave within the community has been talked about by kayakers and surfers.
In 2012 the Fernie Surf Park Society, a not for profit group of volunteers, was created to begin the task of creating a Whitewater Park in Fernie.
Neil Egsgard is the co-founder of Surf Anywhere, a Wave Design and River Surfing consultation firm. Neil started river surfing in 2005 and has since travelled around the world researching wave building & surfing river waves. In 2016, he founded the Alberta River Surfing Association, one of the first river surfing associations.
