Some pics from recent trips on Kootenay river, and Kokanee creek, which flows into the West Arm of Kootenay Lake.

Had to locate that one. Some serious wilderness. Very nice. Any standing waves around there?
One could go into a mall in Kansas and ask a teenager "What is a surfer looking for?, and the answer will always be, "The perfect wave"

Hey, a few standing waves in the area. Just outside of Nelson on Kootenay river, there is a wave that people were riding not long ago when the water level was right. Castlegar has the Brilliant wave, and there is a standing wave near Trail called the Industrial Hole/rock island and a few places where you can catch smaller waves on the Columbia and Slocan rivers.

Rock on, robon! Loved the vids...beautiful wilderness and great river surfing. Canada's calling! Those rivers looked really dangerous though, quite a strong flow.

More good stuff robon..... beautiful places to paddle.
Cookie is right.... on that first wave, you'd be far down river before you got back to shore.
Great wave though.... worth some hiking if the riverbank is friendly. :)
