I had a little spare time while down in Salida today and thought I would go investigate the progress of the new features. The upper feature looks like it is getting close...

It is located behind Bongo's, upstream of the boatramp.

Can't quite tell yet what they are going to do with the lower feature...just a mess right now.

It is certainly going to be nice to have the additions

We have been out surfing on our Badfish Chubby Sticks on the new bottom drop in Salida at approx 500cfs. Fun little wave and boards are insanely fun and perfectly shaped for small river waves. Here is some video from yesterday;

So if you are like me you are off paddling whatever your local run is at pumping flows, but if you are curious what the Salida park looks like at 4700cfs here are some photos this morning.

The new office wave is probably the best feature right now. Big, wide, friendly wave with plenty of foam:

The Boatramp hole looks like a new spot. Pitching wave with a foamy shoulder:

The F Street hole is underwater. We'll look forward to seeing it again at about 2000.

The new Scout wave has been amazing this year. Good from 450 to 4700 so far. We have been surfing it on a variety of boards for the last month but mostly the Badfish Chubby Stick. Here is what it looked like this morning:

Needless to say this ain't a long term situation here on the Ark so my recommendation is clear your calender and get here.

Mike, nice work on the office wave. When I was in Salida on Mem-day Sunday, Rincon was blown out so Burt and I surfed the shit out of the office wave in our Bigfoots. So much fun...

By the way, Rincon Rendezvous is August 6-8. See you there, finally?
