Silver Staircase Surf Wave

Mile: 10.9

GPS: 35.56995, -118.56772

Description: At low to medium flows a surf wave opens up on river right at the end of Silver Staircase. Look for a slight pour over River Right as the river does a slight constriction. Paddle through the drop, catch the eddy on river right and from there it’s not much work to get into the pour over. Ideal flow for this surf wave is 1000CFS. Below this it becomes more mellow, and eventually not retentive. Above this there is an increasing chance of flipping or swimming.
