The Severn Bore

This was a 'Four Star' Bore, arriving by the Severn Bore Inn on the west side of the river.

The wave arrives - it got my heart pounding, even though we were 3 metres above the outgoing river level

This gives a good idea of the wave height. The surfers are close to the opposite bank, which must be a good 3 metres high, and the top of the wave is almost breaching it.
