MISSOULA - Downtown Missoula has something for everybody, including surfers. Brennan's Wave on the Clark Fork River is bringing the ocean sport to Montana.
You can watch surfers at pretty much any time of day right now. And Strongwater Mountain Surf Company just a few blocks away has started to build boards specifically designed for the river. And none of that could happen without the wave.
"I remember 13, 10 years ago what used to be here, and it was a bunch of concrete and junk. And so the fact now that people come here to eat lunch, and swim, and fish, and kayak, and surf, and who knows what else, it's pretty unbelievable," said Jason Shreder Zoo Town Surfers Owner.
"Having Brennan's Wave right downtown, I mean it's what makes this store possible. I mean, that wave has so many benefits. It's just amazing," said Kevin Brown, Strongwater co-owner.
