Though their webpage is not mobile friendly. Does not scale well.

The 'load more' button on the rivers page is annoying too. Wish it would just show all rivers.

Ok, and inability to sort by river name is annoying. Default sort by water level is useless for me.

Honestly eddyflower is a decent source, but american whitewater is more reliable. They have their share of issues though one of them being when you hit the down button it takes you to the next page.

On my first surf through the site it looks like there are still a lot of bugs to be worked out.

Just took a brief look at it. I like the the new interface a lot and the fact that you can add rapids, photos, and runs. The Eddyflower database also fills in some gaps on runs that currently don't have any good info anywhere else. It looks like it's not quite dialed in yet, but looks promising.

However, I'm definitely sticking with River Brain for now. I've dialed in all kinds of key information on the runs I normally I do on there. Flow formulas, secondary gauge info, flow estimate flags, etc. have proved very useful for me. Their flows list and and custom flows lists are working great for me. The mapping integration is awesome and will prove increasingly useful as more data gets entered. The site seems to be very stable. And most of all, Dan who runs the site seems to have the time, energy, flexibility, and motivation to continue to improve it.

Competition is good though.

Is it just me or are the flows broken?

I loved eddyflower, but in their absence I found better options. American Whitewater frankly sucks. New Eddyflower is an incremental improvement. is where its at now-a-days. Wiki style changes to any and all runs at all levels not least flow formula's.

This new Eddyflower set up sucks. There are runs missing. I was hoping to look at Yeti's write-up for the Taylor Park run and take a quick glimpse at the description for the Canyon again and neither one is even on the river list anymore.... lame.
