It was getting there on sunday afternoon. Sorta surgey but definetely good for some 30 seccond surfs before it greened out. You could throw stuff in the left pocket but timing was a bit tough and staying on the wave after landing was even tougher.
I put a pic up in the rodeo/freestyle gallery of what the wave was doing last sunday.
I'm not well dialed into what each level equates to on that wave, but I'd make the drive again if it was going to be the same or better.
Either Delish didn't put his gear on because he forgot his surf tights or he is trying to hide something.... THE WAVE IS IN as the entire CRMS kayak team will attest. Was there on tues. and it was rippin' at 3500. Air blunts and pan-ams right and probably a wide range of flipitty tricks that I can't do are attainable. Git sum. Boating season is officially on.
Shoshone power plant can only handle 2000 cfs. So, anything on the Shoshone gauge above 2000 is guarenteed to be in Barrel. I think it's rare that they actually put 2000 cfs through the plant (I think 1800 is more common ... 900 cfs though each tube), so you'll likely have more than the gauge minus 2000.
Can anyone confirm the high CFS range of South Canyon Wave? Looks to be around 4100 and probably rising throughout the day. Was there on Sunday at 2800 and it was super fun. Leif's story at ColoradoKayaking.com says the wave is in till around 4200. Can anyone confirm this? Most posts above are giving much lower CFS levels for the upper boundary....
Hobie...or anyone else with an opinion...What level is good for board surfing or bodyboarding? I have never been on it higher than 4000. Does it totally wash out or can you find a green water pocket? Hoping to ride Smizzle part of the day, but have to drop off an old oven at the dump...might as well try to get in some rides while I'm there.
