There is another new Kayak and SUP shop in MoTown that also demos boats. They have Pyranhas at present and may add Wavesport.

Montrose Kayak and Surf - 302 W. Main St.

They're having a grand opening this week that will also be a fundraiser for Welcome Home Montrose Warrior Resource Center. It'll be $8 for a burger/dog and a drink, and they're doing it from 4-6 on Thursday 5/14.

Anything deep enough for aerial moves or should expect to only be rocking flat spins and wicked paddle twirls?

Here's a vid of the 2nd feature. It was the biggest, faster and greenest feature when we were there two days ago

At an estimated 600cfs 2 weekends ago Alex Hotze was looping in #5 and #6.

#1 and #3 were fun for cartwheels. #2 was a good blunt spot.

Here's a shot of Alex

I'm sort of involved with economic development in Montrose.

We are excited about the potential of the water park.

What ancillary businesses would you use or like to see in Montrose when you come here to boat?

thanks!

Would love to see a water gauge and maybe webcam. Some of us would travel far if the water is running. Would want to know prior to driving 2+ hours.
Thanks

accurate online gauge or create an app that computes the formula from the other gauges and makes that estimate available easily.
That steel building adjacent to the nasty pond could be turned into a bike, sup, kayak, ducky, disc golf, skateboard supply center. One could demo and buy items and walk back and forth from there to the park. fish tacos, beer and margs in the afternoons and weekends during summer. Bands could play at the space as well. I understand the owner wants 500k...

The word on the old power plant (if that's what you're referring to) is that the owner doesn't want to sell because he is afraid of environmental issues on that property. You're right on the money for the complex we'd like to put in down there.
