The 2nd drop at Union is called “U2 Wave” which is a fun, fast, small little wedge that jumps up when the gauge hits over 1,200cfs and can be surfed at any level above that. There is an intimidating hole right after the wave that can churn you straight to the bottom, and spit you out 20 yards down stream, but the spot has really large eddies on both sides so there is little danger of getting ripped down the next drop. Just surf with a friend, and be safe!

Works at 1200cfs and above. Small left hand wedge with micro barrel at 1,200 – 1,500cfs. Nice wedge with a pile above 1,500cfs. Super fun wave.
Shallow at lower flows so fall flat and in the pile. Hole after the wave can suck you down, NO LEASHES! Be a strong swimmer, and surf with a friend, or friends.
