Badfish party @ Confluence

The platte spiked up to 400cfs on Wednesday. Pretty fun level for early March.

I expect it to do something similar today, if anyone wants to head down this afternoon.

Water quality: not so good

Ben, I know you want to check it out. I'll probably go sometime tomorrow also.

The wave was better Friday with terrible water quality.

Saturday was fun, I was really sore after spending a couple of hours down there.

5 different waves to surf.

I am having trouble getting my video to YouTube.

But here is some video Scott sent me from Saturday.

They call me skills - YouTube

Tomorrow could be similar to Friday, I will probably go down there after work.

Hey,

The flow was about 360 cfs in the video.

I went out today after work and the wave in the video was even better. The flow was about 230 cfs. Pretty hard to get on the wave and hard to exit get back in the eddy, but after I got on the wave I was getting 5 minute rides.
Took a couple of fun swims too.

Sunday paddle

Anyone up for a last minute paddle call.

I am looking to do a platte down river today. Probably meet up at 1, for about 4 miles and surfing some waves.

I need to work on my video, but here are a couple of clips of some tiny wave surfing from Friday. About the same flow today.

you should wear a helmet. That "wave" your surfing is shallow.

If you fall off to surfers right side, your gonna land on a pile of blast rock, nice video tho. im not trying to be a dick about the helmet, but we took lots of people there last season, and that was the norm for us.

Thanks for the feedback.

Sure, people should wear helmets and life jackets.

Ya gotta expect some negative comments from the forum.

I am going to get some miles in today.
