This spot is right next to Habitat 67 (on the right side of the main wave, therefore its name “Right Sides”). The wave is best surfable in spring; in summer, the wave is too shallow and you risk to break your board or hurt yourself. Also, be aware of a rock, which is just behind the wave on the surfer’s right. Update: The wave was destroyed in winter of 2014-2015. It is a big hole now and shouldn’t be surfed at all. Dangerous.

How to Get There
- Best in spring, when flows are higher (> 8,000)
- Great in spring, often too flat in summer.
- Usually pretty hard to catch by paddle-in
- Generally, if the wave is too green to catch, it’s too flat to surf.
- The wave was destroyed during winter 2014-2015. It is a big hole now and shouldn’t be surfed at all. Dangerous.
- There’s a rock just behind the wave.
- Do not surf in summer, as the water is usually pretty shallow.
- Swim in if it has a lot of white on the face.
- Use a bigger board if the wave is too hard to catch.
- Bring booties! (the bottom of the river is not actually foot friendly and the walk back neither).
