Chasing China’s Silver Dragon…the Return!


Back in 2008, Matt Wybenga was part of the first of several crews that went behind the red curtain of China to see the mythical Qiantang River Tidal Bore, or soon to be called “The Silver Dragon”. Well he was invited back by the Chinese government with a new crew of surfers, Endless Summer II star, Robert “Wingnut” Weaver, Mary Osbourne, phenom skater Curren Caples and a few others riding the solid 25mph tide push. Until surfers realized the potential of the tidal bore, it was just a navigational nightmare, but with the tight grip loosening with China’s Communism, I’m sure there will be some great images when it gets up to 15ft…As for now, sit back and enjoy the Silver Dragon doing it’s thing!
