The whitewater park here In salmon should be complete by Christmas. Come spring I would like to be able to get in on the action. I have seen a few videos of people surfing spuds and think it would be a decent option. Does anyone here have real world experiences with spuds in whitewater parks... I have a RMR storm, a 156R , and a tandem IK. I also have a 4 and 6 year old and think a spud would be a no Brainerd to add to the quiver.. I'm only 5'7" 165lbs so I don't think the spud would be too small. I'm not really interested in a hardshell.
