Easter Sunday Surf Sessions!
While other people are hunting for colorful eggs and stuffing their faces with candy, myself and a handful of other local paddlers found ourselves slipping into the New River for another amazing day of freestyle and big water. When the levels are right (this weekend was +/-11,000 cfs) the New River Gorge has more quality play spots than most rivers have rapids. Each feature has it's own vibe and feel. Upper Railroad and Ender Waves have potential for HUGE tricks but the eddy service is a workout to say the least. Greyhound is a breeze to get into but can get rowdy once you're in it. Lower Railroad is friendly and a great training feature to perfect just about every move. Other catch-on-the-fly features such as Brain Wave, WMD (wave of mass destruction), Seldom Seen, Frog Rock hole and Harman's cartwheel hole are all in their prime as well.
