What happens when big wave professional surfer Shane Dorian travels from Hawaii to Colorado and wants to surf? He finds a way, that's what.

Shane Dorian typically surfs ocean waves, really really big ocean waves. Only one problem. Unlike Hawaii, there's no ocean in Colorado.

That didn't stop Dorian from surfing. He found some waves on the Colorado River at the Glenwood Springs Whitewater Park and being the pro he is, makes it look way too easy.

Then again, he is used to surfing 20 to 50 foot waves. So while different, this type of surfing is a great way to relax, cool off, and have some fun with the locals.

Yeah, I'm impressed and to be honest, a bit jealous. Still, as a Coloradan there's pride in knowing a pro surfer can find just what he's looking for in our backyard.
