Surfing the Penobscot waves


Peter Lataille surfs a standing wave, whitewater enthusiasts refer to as Joe P’s, on the Penobscot River near Indian Island.  Lataille  has been an ocean surfer for 14 years and later started using a paddle to help him get on more difficult waves, and to be able to surf rivers as well. When he is not surfing, the Hampden resident works as a  perfusionist, who operates heart and lung machines during heart surgeries.  Lataille is also an expert whitewater kayaker, rock and ice climber.
