Slam has an eleven year history of bringing together surfers and spectators in the watery playground of the Rocky Mountains. This year Slam will be home to the first ever River Surfing North American Championships. Surfers and spectators will be traveling in from the eight prominent river surfing communities across Canada and the US. With the growth of our event we continue to inspire and build the community in a manner that is authentic, inspiring, and true to our roots. Traveling surfers will be immersed in a mountain surf culture that they are able to take home with them.
All funds raised are donated to the Alberta River Surfing Association and go towards building waves and community.
