Hoback River - Hoback Canyon

Hoback Surf Wave

Rapid Details

Name Hoback Surf Wave
Class III- to III+

At high water levels a nice surf wave appears on river left.  Eddy service is on river left as well.  This eddy service can be tricky in catching this wave.  The wave has a tendency to spit you out the other side as well.  If you get in the wave you can carve back and forth as long as you can stand.

The river is a little shallow below the wave so if you go over tuck up and roll as quickly as you can.


Scout from the park and play.  Look just downstream and across the river from where the small parking area.
