New River Surfing Site

Low flows had me looking for something to do, so I launched a new river surfing site, Endlesswaves.net. The site is still in its early stages, but I hope to provide an online guidebook to river surf waves around the state, as well as gear reviews and articles.

Very impressive site!

I have been wanting to find more webcams at whitewater parks but, so far,
the only one I know of is at Glenwood.

A question for everyone: How much interest is there in having webcams at
whitewater parks? (I'm only familiar with some of the parks in Colorado so
I'm not sure if other states' whitewater parks usually have webcams.)

I'd be real happy to know what the wave is going to be like before driving
to a place and wasting my time because it's not right for me and/or my board. I might know what a spot is like at 1000 cfs but maybe I've never
seen it at, say, 600 cfs.

Surfline (SURFLINE.COM | Global Surf Reports, Surf Forecasts, Live Surf Cams and Coastal Weather) has been putting up webcams at surfing/windsurfing spots all over the world for probably 20 years (they first started as a telephone service where you
just called up to find conditions at particular sites, back in the 1980s).
Anyhow, I have talked with some of the principals at Surfline and they are
open to webcams at river surfing locations that they would install & maintain. The devil is always in the details e.g. finding the right location,
getting internet access, electrical power, security etc.

The real question is: How much interest is there out in the river surfing
community?

If you want to message me privately or just reply to the thread, I'll try
to compile the input.

thanks!

Thanks! Webcams are certainly something I'd be interested in; they exist in a few other spots already. Links: Boise, Reno, Kellys (Payette), Bend (potentially borked right now?), Glenwood (mentioned), Charles City IA, Manchester IA (potentially borked), Elkader IA, Salida.

Looks like Gunnison had one once but I can't find a stream.

And for those of you coming at river surfing for a whitewater kayaking background, here's a primer.
