Renee Godfrey surfs the Severn Bore

The spring equinox brings some of the world's biggest tides to the shores of Wales. For the Severn Estuary this means a giant tidal surge upriver. As the river narrows the water funnels into a giant wave called the Severn Bore. Champion surfer Renee Godfrey joins world long-distance-surfing record holder Steve King and they set off to try and catch up with the wave. Having dreamt about it since she was a child, will Renee be able to complete the incredible 9 mile long challenge?
