IceBerg Canyon Rapid** Epic Surf

in care of shoptech1

I just got back from Southcove where I camped on this epic wave for the last two days. 10 miles past Pearce Ferry Rapid there is this Rapid that has formed. It is a giant pourover. The rock is a solid constriction creating an overhead wave with an 8 foot wide pile. The eddy service is 50 yards long on both sides. The downstream left side is the best eddy feed in. There is a shady morning camp just upstream on the left. Many other options but that is the best.

No doubt the best standing wave on the Colorado river below the dam. If you get a chance hit it. It is located about 5 miles from Southcove and 1 mile of current to motor. There is also a 1 mile trail from Pearce Ferry.

Just returned again from The Wave at Iceberg Canyon. Incredible. I have pictures at gcrafting.blogspot.com down near the bottom of the page around the southcove info. I tried to put them in the gallery but the file was too big. More video at youtube coming soon.

If you kayak and are doing a grand canyon river trip in the near future don't miss this wave. The eddy service is epic. Camping tambien. If you have people that don't kayak bring a river board for them. They'll have a great time.
