Pororoca: Surfeando el Amazonas

Desde hace años, surfistas de todo el mundo llegan hasta la desembocadura del Amazonas  para subirse a sus tablas y correr ‘la pororoca’. El nombre, de la lengua Tupí-guaraní- significa Gran estruendo o Gran ruido destructor y sirve para designar este peculiar fenómeno que sucede dos veces por año (entre febrero y marzo) pudiéndose observar durante días, una vez por la mañana y otra por la noche.

Sucede al final de la época de lluvias y la luna llena anuncia la llegada de las ‘mareas vivas’ a la costa atlántica de Sudamérica. Cuando la marea creciente del Atlántico choca con la corriente descendiente del Amazonas se produce una gran ola de color marrón que puede alcanzar los 4 metros de altura y avanzar decenas de kilómetros río adentro, llegando incluso a invertir el sentido del cauce mientras arrastra todo a su paso. Los surfistas no se amilanan y siguen llegando cada año tratando de conseguir un nuevo record mundial de permanencia ya que las olas pueden llevarte río arriba, durante casi una hora sobre la tabla.

En este vídeo podrás interiorizarte sobre el fenómeno

    Buenos días, quisiera presenciar la famosa ola Pororoca.

    ¿Podría decirme en qué fecha puedo planificar para viajar a Amazonas y cómo se llega desde Montevideo, Uruguay?
    Gracias

    ask if you don’t mind. I was interested to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing.
    I have had a difficult time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out there.
    I truly do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are generally lost just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?

    Appreciate it!
