The Bend Wave is an exciting new development, and a sign of river surfing's expanding influence on recreation in cities worldwide. The wave is a steep, green, kicker wave created by a concrete sheet and metal ramps underwater. The wave works at 500 - 1000 cfs, and is suitable for both beginners and experts. Surfers should be wary of the shallow water covering the concrete and metal that creates the wave, and for the rocky bottom downstream.
