Pesta Benak 2012 Sri Aman

Pesta Benak 2012 (Tidal Bore Carnival 2012) was held in Sri Aman on 6 April 2012. This Carnival is one of the yearly activites in Sarawak tourism calendar.
Benak Sri Aman 2012
Tidal bore or locally known as benak, occurs everyday with different wavelengths and heights. However, during spring tide, normally on the third and eighteen day of the Chinese Lunar Calendar, tidal bores with high magnitude can be observed clearly. The 'benak' continues its journey another 30 km inland, ending near the small village of Engkilili.
The Batang Lupar flows 200km from its source in the Kapuas Mountains to the Teluk Datu of the South China Sea. At its mouth the river forms the broadest estuary in Sarawak, as well as accommodating the largest of the four benak's that occur in Sarawak.

What i want to make a conclusion this year i saw more participation of 10 surfers, comprising six international participants from France and England, three from Kuala Lumpur and one female surfer from Sri Aman.
