29 Rd. in Grand Junction SUP

Hello.

I have read there is a nice wave for standup paddleboarding on the Colo river near 29 road.

Anyone have any info on it? Traveling down from Denver to do some mountain biking and would like to check it out.

Any informal sessions?

Thanks

For it to be in the good range I think you would want above 2k on the gauge below the palisade diversion. Cameo gage should work too if they have not started to divert water from the canal. Search the site for 29 Rd and you should find a thread explaining access and location (I am to lazy to type that long of a description from my phone) The good wave for surf is actually upstream of what you first see from below or access the river from the paved recreation path on 29 rd. right now I don't think flows are at that level but could easily be by the weekend.

Also looking at 5th street there may be A wave that goes, but it would take some effort as its mid channel.

I think it needs at least 3k to be decent. At 2k it's there, but I live here and I wouldn't take the time to go there for less than 3k.

I had read on a website that is better at low flows. Anyone been surfing it lately?

Anyone meeting this weekend to surf? Is this the proper place to post a meet up or are there other ways to meet other river surfers?

Thank you.

With Cameo gauge showing 1340cfs and Highline canal taking 850cfs along with Grandvalley canal taking 260, there isn't going to be much going through 29 rd. Definitely not enough for any good surfing. I haven't been there yet for a visual, so could be wrong.

I think your using Cameo gauge, I use the gauge below palisade diversion, so with the irrigation canals 2k at palisade equals 3k at cameo. But I also live here

Hey ''42'', are you guys planning on going out on it Friday or Saturday or maybe even a trip to Shoshone? Would be more than willing to share shuttles. Have plans for Sunday.
