Arkansas River - Pueblo Whitewater Park

The Gizmo - Forth Drop

Rapid Details

Name The Gizmo - Forth Drop
Class II to IV-

Powerful surf wave that requires an active agressive surf above 2000 cfs. The wave can be caught from the eddy at flows above 2000 cfs but it takes a little bit of work. Best way in at higher flows is to catch the river right eddy and sneak onto the first foam pile. Then surf towards center and paddle into the BROWN. A good skirt is a must as the lesser skirts tend to implode.


Best surf just off of middle river right with plenty of foam for loops, back surfs, cartwheels etc. . River middle can be a green tongue that you can surf the center but to much green to loop or cartwheel without effort.

Recommended Flows Minimum: 5700.0
