Salmon River Surfing

April 19, 2010

Surfing this weekend on the Salmon was fantastic!  Couch Wave was in at 9,000 cfs.  It was perfect for me and for IK surfing too.  The Salmon is rising fast, today it is 11,000 and projected to over 14,000 by Wednesday.  That means that Rodeo Hole will be in!  Couch comes back in around 23,000.  The flows can be check at www.kayakidaho.com or http://waterdata.usgs.gov/id/nwis/current/?type=flow under Salmon River at Whitebird.

Come surf in Idaho soon!   Kelly’s Whitewater Park, www.kwpid.com, is ready and awaiting water.  I surfed feature two on Saturday.  I could flat spin, but needs more than 200 cfs to throw down.  I will keep you posted.

With World Kayak being in the paddling community business its always nice to come across the ‘ultimate’ community.  We recently found this in Idaho!  Cascade Idaho to be exact.

World Kayak’s Boise Ambassador, Gary ‘Rapid Pirate’ Wilson spread his wings recently and is lending a hand getting Throwdowns and activities set up at a new park in Cascade Idaho.  With the richness in whitewater in that region, there was a paddling community there already, but with the development of a new whitewater park in the town itself, we find ourselves with a new ‘heart’ for the paddling folks in the region.
