Description: The river and bay are known for the world's largest tidal bore, which is up to 9 metres (30 ft) high, and travels at up to 40 km per hour (25 miles an hour). The tide rushing into the river from the bay causes a bore usually from 5 to 15 ft (1.5–4.6 m) high, which sweeps past Hangzhou and menaces shipping in the harbor. It is so dangerous that, until recently, no one attempting to surf it has managed to remain upright for more than 11 seconds.
