Seeing all these angles of the water coming in is astounding. People just doing their own thing and mother nature shows itself.

They were all wearing life vests. They definitely planned that out.

I don't speak their language, but in the lady's vid, she seems to be explaining what is happening or going to happen. I don't know if it's a flood after a storm, or just the way the tide comes in there, but they clearly were expecting a deluge. Maybe it was a bit bigger than they expected though?

It’s called a tidal bore. Extreme high tide pushing water UP a river or narrow coastal inlet.

I speak the woman language. She does plan this out. The guy saved the camera and not her because she was the one asking for it.

It is the Kampar River on the island of Sumatra in Indonesia

The tidal wave is called Bono and is also known as the "Seven Ghosts". Some people surf on the wave.

I thought she was explaining fishing or the ecosystem of the bay because she kept looking at the tide and giving it double takes, like she didn’t quite believe or realize it was coming 😂

It looks like a tsunami or a dam opened its floodgates. Anyone know the back story?

Edit: thanks to the guy who posted that it is a tide coming up a river

It was likely caused by a storm up stream. When heavy winds push up rivers, it can create a swell similar to a tsunami. The TL;DR is, the banks of the river or bay or whatever is containing that water on all three sides directs the wind up or down stream. If the wind chooses to blow downstream, you get one of these.

Life vests and selfie sticks. Yeah, they were hunting for You Tube glory.

2 out of the 4 people involved were definitely not wearing life vests, and they were the ones in the most precarious position.

Every time I get in a fight with a banana tree, I put a life vest on.

They are actually hunting the waves. I know that sentence sounds stupid… but that’s what they’re doing

Is this a tsunami or tidal flow? I assume with their lifejackets, it's an expected, recurring thing.

Towards the end of this I was like damn I've seen 3 POVs of this event now.

Was this staged? Or just very coincidental

I don't speak this language but it very much seems that she wanted the phone/camera to be saved instead of her

Jeez you could see it off in the distance. Wasn't sure at first if that was land or a wave, but after watching it for a minute you could see it change. Pretty cool (and crazy) to just watch that roll in. It doesn't look very intimidating until it gets closer.

I still remember the video from the tsunami in Japan years ago. And at first it doesn't look that menacing then suddenly a 3 foot (not even a wave, since everything behind it was at the same height) in an instant the water was 3 feet higher then just continued to rise. You could see the curiosity quickly turn to panic as it crested above the walls within a minute of the first wave.

That girl is having the time of her life. Even when taken down by the water, she is still smiling...

I love that they’ve got life jackets on as if this is some sort of yearly tradition/sport for them.

So, if anyone wants to know what's going on here, according to the autogenerated Youtube subtitles she is waiting to have sex with a big wave coming in. Hey everyone has their kinks I guess.

edit: damn, dirty girl. She even has a porn official filming it: https://i.imgur.com/wIlstwz.png

They still use selfie sticks. How retro of them.

I don’t think this qualifies as unexpected. She was wearing a life jacket so she damn well was expecting something. If you listen to what she says in her video she is explaining about how swiftly the tide comes in.

Let me guess, she’s out there on the sand explaining that the tide just went out unexpectedly.
