I was there on Sunday and a guy was ripping it up on a short board. I think the level was about 9500, but check the flows for that day. It should be dropping and getting steeper, so it'll probably depend on what size / shape board you bring.
surf boards can surf lunch counter at many levels, much higher levels than kayakers. I was there yesterday and there was a guy tearing it up at 9200 cfs. The wave is still pretty green at that level, but once it starts to get below 9,000 and especially 8,000...oh baby, it is on. It dropped to 8300 today and going down, I am 15 minutes from lunch counter right now--uuuhh, gotta go.
