Golden ww park (Rodeo Hole) at this level

Hi Folks,

Was thinking about heading to golden ww park tomorrow from Fort Collins. I have never seen it at this level so I do not know if it is worth the trip. I'm interested to know how sticky rodeo hole is at this level and also how vicious the eddie is on the left side of the river which get kind of nasty if you get pushed over there upside down. Thanks

I was there last Monday at a similar level. It is sticky enough to be fun, and not too sticky (if that's your concern). I never found the river left eddy to be that vicious. The eddy line is strong and can mess with your roll, but I can't say I've ever been pushed completely into the eddy upside down. I guess if you take too long to roll, you could find yourself up against the wall.

Don't discount the library wave either. It's not nearly as good as the rodeo hole, but I had a few fun surfs and spins. It's a little hard to get on, but it can be done from the river right eddy.

Enjoy before they let the tubers back on it.
