Re: Surf's up. Waka wave = 1000cfs through Sunday.

There will be a few of us out there boating Sunday around noon or 1pm start time. May be some other boaters out there earlier.

Boated it yesterday, it was fun. The wave got better as the day went on from about 1pm to 430pm. At the end of the day it was fast, fun, and challenging. Enjoy!

Re: Wakarusa Release

Waka scouting update.

Right now waka is flat due to high backwater. Looks like the dam release is still the same. Do not make the drive until it is good; will post or ask another boater to post once it is good to go.

Re: Oklahoma City whitewater park

Thanks for the link, had not seen the virtual flyover. Gonna be a blast - there are some fine play features there. Looks like completion date kicked back to December 2015; last I heard was September. In case you missed it, here is a vid of the 1/12 scale model. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LMJLB...

Re: Bowersock and Local

Did you see the video Opes posted at Bowersock? Link below in case you missed it. That is the diagonal wave; I have seen it bigger and faster when the conditions are right. Smiley wave is another wave that comes in occasionally; downstream and river right from the diagonal wave. PM me if you want mo...

Re: Wister Wave is up. anybody wanna go there?

Don't want you to make a trip down there for nothing. It's been a long time since I was down there, but I think the best surfing is from 6000 to 6800cfs. That is quite a bit higher than what is listed as optimal on the gauge here on KWA. Also the gauge is quite a ways downstream from the lake outlet...

Re: Bowersock Dam playable?

Welcome to the KC area. A couple of bits of info on Bowersock. 1) The description on the website is about 5 years old and play has changed a lot due to dam and powerhouse modifications. Those modifications allow the powerplant operators to route water thru either the north or south side powerplants ...

Re: Lawrence KS, Whitewater Park

I like it too. Anything that can feed my kayak addiction is good for me. Hell, let's have Bowersock too. Also one at Kaw 435; hellatious gradient there; we could have a waveshaper. The sky is the limit. On a slightly more serious note: This is the second go around for this ww park at Clinton. The wa...

Re: charles city gauge?

Several folks no longer see this gauge. Most of us are checking Rod's webpage where he has it listed. http://www.kayakdog.com Also from his mobile app page (link on main page above), he has a direct link to the Charles City webcam. Well Done! Not sure what is happening on KWA. I am no longer seeing ...
