The colorado river forecast center predicts the river will peak just below 24K wednesday morning. I may be into camping in the area tuesday night and surf weds morning befor work.

Would you be into this Steven? I bet DD would be all over it.

Does anyone know how far below the wave the dam is? Can you surf a surfboard over 20K on the wave? It may go up around 23K on Weds morning and am wondering if you were surfing on a surfboard, could you safely return to shore after coming off the wave?

I think I remember someone saying 1/3 of a mile; so close enough whereas you wouldn't want to dally on getting to shore. A Longbord or a funboard would be best...

Yep, do-able....

I was there on 5/22 and saw a guy "Winslow" ? surfing it at 20,300cfs. Higher, I assume, will be a bigger wave. Looks like plenty of room between tha dam but scout per your individual needs.

Have fun/be safe.
