At 500, the top feature is basically a hole on surfer's right and a flat glassy wave on surfer's left.

River Description

A new park, built with local tax dollars in 1999. It isn't the fanciest or the best but it is a great start. Surfing on the upper of two drops is good at 350cfs or above. Deep holes under both drops so you can drop the nose or tail without fear of hitting the bottom. Finding the park is a little tricky... I look for the McDonalds on E. Main when heading East and take a right on Tucker St. Follow Tucker all the way to the end (cross San Juan Blvd.) and park in the thoughtfully provided parking area. Change in the little changing booth and head down the trail and to the left for a couple hundred yards to find the park and river. Great start and good to see local dollars going to a new WW facility!
