  • This wave can be surfed from 4,000 to 15,000 cfs.


  • A waist high slightly tubing hard left. At higher water this feature washes out a little. But at medium to lower flows this lateral wave off of the left bank creates a nice wave that looks much like an ocean wave curling at the top.


  • Try not to stay in the way of rafters or kayakers.


  • A rope could be helpful sometimes.
